BENEFITING: BORGEN PROJECT
I am volunteering for the Borgen Project (http://borgenproject.org/) as a Regional Director. The Borgen Project is a national campaign that works with US leaders to address global poverty.
I, along with the Borgen Project, believe that America should be doing more to alleviate the suffering caused by poverty. Through my own travels, I have seen extreme poverty and understand how interconnected poverty is to other issues, such as global health, education, access to clean water and sanitation and stability within communities and nations. It is within America's national interest to reduce poverty, however less than 1% of our budget actually goes to Foreign Aid (coincidentally most Americans think that 25% of our budget is spent on aid). As a leader in the wolrd, we should do more!
Please help me reach my goal of raising $1000 for the Borgen Project. This money will go directly to the project and allow them to advocate on behalf of the world's poor. If you don't want to donate, or want to do more, please help call Congress and ask your Congressional leaders to protect the International Affairs Budget.
