BENEFITING: BORGEN PROJECT
I’m reaching out to let you know about this organization I’m involved in called the Borgen Project. The Borgen Project is a non-profit that advocates for the world’s poor and is working to make poverty a focus of U.S. foreign policy. With over 200 volunteers throughout the United States, we operate through four major strategies: building awareness of global issues, educating citizens on basic advocacy, mobilizing people across the U.S. to share their voice in Congress, and advocating to make poverty a political priority.
Volunteers like myself work with our Congressional leaders to help generate change and secure support for crucial poverty-reducing legislation. I chose to be involved with The Borgen Project because I wanted to fill my Summer learning about and fighting for something that matters. And now comes the awkward part where I ask you to do the same.
I ask that you consider making a contribution to the Borgen Project so that we can build and maintain our advocacy efforts. Your gift would not only address the critical global issue of poverty, but also allow for me, and others like me, to develop skills and experience related to making a positive and lasting change in the world. You can make a donation here, or at www.borgenproject.org/donate. Thank you!
