BENEFITING: BORGEN PROJECT
I am doing this fundraiser for The Borgen Project, which believes that leaders of the most powerful nation on earth should be doing more to address global poverty. We’re the innovative, national campaign that is working to make poverty a focus of U.S. foreign policy. In a Nutshell: We fight extreme poverty.
In addition to donating directly online here, I am also making/selling bracelets locally. What really inspired me to want to make bracelets are the fact that they are a constant daily reminder and if/when bought to help combat global poverty I am hoping it will remind people of our message at the Borgen Project and serve as a conversation starter when someone else asks about them or where they purchased them from. I really liked the concept of the "circle" bracelet specifically that I am making because of its illusion to Karma and what goes around, comes around. I think this coupled with the philanthropic nature of The Borgen Project really go hand in hand (no pun intended) and would also serve as a good reminder of global poverty.
