Lin Sabones Borgen Project
First I'd like to thank you so much for visiting my page!
Bringing awareness to global poverty is important in itself, but prioritizing it on the U.S. budget is the next step. Did you know that less than 1% the U.S. federal budget goes to foreign aid? That money helps other countries reconstruct, develop, and stabilize self-sufficient economic/political/educational/agricultural/etc. systems.
Foreign aid is therefore an investment in others.
I believe in being socially responsible by doing whatever I can to help those who can't help themselves. The Borgen Project lets me create my own voice through researching and writing 3 articles a week for the online blog and magazine. My articles cover what is new in the poverty reduction front related to Business and Technology initiatives. I also cover general topics like "What is International Aid?" which will be my first published piece to the blog. I also take part in contacting my congressional leaders to advocate for poverty reduction legislation.
As you can tell, fundraising is another requirement of my writer internship at Borgen. The $500 minimum goes towards running the organization. Since it's largely volunteer-based, the money is crucial for keeping it alive. Specifically, your money will help keep facilities working, and fund for conferences and events with political leaders and other poverty reformers.
I know one donation seems too indirect and insignificant, but I promise it all adds up. Here is the link to the Borgen Project's success tracker: http://borgenproject.org/success-tracker/
Thank you so much again for taking the time to 1. read this and 2. donate. It means so much to me.
