BENEFITING: BORGEN PROJECT
Imagine every day, over your morning coffee, reading the paper and discovering two jumbo jet airliners full of children crashed, killing everyone aboard. As dramatic as that sounds, the truth is diarrhea kills kids equivalent to the rate of one jumbo jet crashing every ten hours. That's just diarrhea. Many more die quietly in the night, victims of malnutrition or the human trafficking underworld. The Borgen Project works hard, fighting global poverty by pressuring our leaders to allocate more resources to international affairs and promoting the idea that we Americans, citizens of the greatest country on earth should take on the responsibility of making the whole world a better place for all.
