BENEFITING: BORGEN PROJECT
What is The Borgen Project?
The Borgen Project believes that leaders of the most powerful nation on earth should be doing more to address global poverty.
While many argue that we have enough problems here in the U.S., The Borgen Project emphasizes how improving conditions for the world's poor is beneficial for our economy here at home. Additionally, because poverty is often a breeding site for extremism, The Borgen Project's work helps to protect U.S. national security interests.
The Borgen Project works to address poverty from all angles--from lobbying congressman in Washington, to supporting projects on the ground such as installing a fresh-water well.
As a staff writer for The Borgen Project, I write four articles a week that are published on the online magazine and blog.
Apart from writing, I'm excited to be involved in a personal fundraising campaign! Every staff member of The Borgen Project is a volunteer, even the founder Clint Borgen. Money raised through my campaign will go directly into funding all spectrums of The Borgen Project's work.
How Can I Help?
I would greatly appreciate your support for my fundraising campaign! Even if you only have a few dollars to spare, any amount makes a difference.
Increasing foreign aid is not a handout, but an investment in our future--and a step in the right direction for improving the human condition.
