BENEFITING: BORGEN PROJECT
The Borgen Project is an innovative, national campaign that works with U.S. leaders to improve their response to the global poverty crisis. I love The Borgen Project because this organization has had major impact on thousands of peoples of lives. We work for the global poor by raising support for bills that protect and serve the less fortunate around the world. Currently the US government gives about .07% of the federal budget but this could be more if citizens showed support for powerful legislation. Additionally, studies have shown that effective legislation can improve more lives with greater impact than many disconnected small projects. This success shows in the Water for the World Act. This bill has the power to bring clean water to the currently 800 million living without. One well typically supports about $500. Your support goes a long way! I challenge you all to donate $10 to our cause so we can continue to advocate for our friends near and far.
