BENEFITING: BORGEN PROJECT
I have been a volunteer for the Borgen Project for four weeks now and within the organization, I am a writer with the goals of bringing to readers the truth about the state of global poverty and promoting initiative from our Congressional leaders to pass relevant legislation.
At the moment, I am most active supporting the passage of the "Support Food Aid Reform" and the "Water for the World Act".
In addition to that, I am also a full time college student going into my last year of school, majoring in Computer Science. I want to fund raise/advocate because throughout college I did not give my support for fear of a huge time commitment, and the fact that money to spare was very hard for me to come by.
Yet, I always wanted to help people. And not that I have found a group of people who share my same interests, a group of people working hard to fight for those who are helpless and most important, a group taking the battle of poverty to the highest level, I know that my participation is needed, urgent and most importantly invaluable.
I ask that you become an activist with me. I ask for donations based on your own level of availability (trust me, I get it when you want to help but cannot afford it). But looking back, it was the thought that counted most. A little goes a long way.
I want to talk poverty.
I want to know if you will dare to care.
