BENEFITING: BORGEN PROJECT
The Borgen Project is a national campaign working to end world poverty by pushing legislation through Congress that benefits foreign aid.
I feel connected to this cause because as a creative writer I am always seeking out real-life personal and social scenarios to expand my understanding of human connection and betterment. This scenario is not a mere issue. It's a global problem effecting billions I have never met and wish I could know. I do not have the capability to travel the world and do good face-to-face. This campaign is one way to start becoming more connected with the humble beginnings of an underdog. I and many otherse can feel responsible for helping the Borgen Project change the world. I don't know personally what poverty feels like but research and effort helps me to help them. Knowing that poverty hurts is enough, and I look forward to the amount of good I can create. I believe people can feel better about themselves when they help the world's poor and doing that permanently by advocating to one of the most powerful nations on Earth: The United States.
Bring the feeling of doing good full-circle by donating today and watching the world change from home.
The Borgen Project met with 93% of U.S. Senate in 2014, yet only 630,000 visitors have seen their website. It's located here: borgenproject.org. $177,461.74 were donated to the Borgen Project last year by the end of December 2014. That's a feat! Let us challenge ourselves to do better. Though over the past 20 years global poverty has been cut in half, there are still millions in need. We're almost there. There are still 870 million who are hungry today according to the World Food Programme. By starting at $500, we can make our way to seeing poverty decrease even more by helping the Borgen Project push for legislation such as Water for the World Act passed in December 2014 and Electrify Africa Act, which is a focus in 2015. It all starts with you. Thank you.
