BENEFITING: BORGEN PROJECT
EVENT DATE: Nov 08, 2013
I'm part of an amazing organization called the Borgen Project. It's a US non-profit organization that works with congressional leaders to bring awareness to global poverty and human rights issues and make it a focus of US foreign policy.
According to the World Food Program, the number of hungry people in the world is greater than the population of the the US, Canada, and the EU combined.
UNICEF data shows that 22,000 children die each day due to poverty and 4 million newborns in developing countries die before their first month of life.
The world has made some progress thus far as life expectancy has increased and undernourishment has decreased in developing countries. But there is still work to be done.
By bringing awareness and mobilizing our global leaders to prioritize poverty and hunger reduction issues, we can end poverty once and for all and make the world a better place. Please help me fundraise for the Borgen Project today by donating to the cause!
