BENEFITING: BORGEN PROJECT
Hi everyone! I really hope you're all doing great!
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 joined the Borgen Project as an editor to help give me real-world experience in the work force, and I quickly became attached to the Project’s ideas. The issues that they represent are global and I think that everyone getting involved will make some serious changes and help many people. For me, it’s not about comparing how well-off one country is to another, but rather making sure that everyone can have the same chances to succeed and do something important with their lives. I’m happy that I’ve been able to live my life the way I have, and I want more people to be able to feel that way.
I ask for your help supporting for The Borgen Project, and ask that you consider making a donation. 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.
Part of my internship is this fundraising campaign. If I meet my goal then you will have helped me immensely in my future by providing me with life experience, and a solid resume builder. But please, please, please, if you have any questions about anything, send them my way. I would much rather you donate to something that you're fully informed about rather than just because it will help me. I'd be happy to talk about it with you.
Without support from people like you, I would not have the opportunity to be involved in such an impactful organization and I thank you in advance for your consideration and support. Every gift helps!
