THE STORY:

          I have been following the organization called "Doctors Without Borders", and they are looking for people to run a half-marathon and raise money for them. This is an amazing organization that I personally plan on working with in a few years.

         MSF provides independent, impartial assistance in more than 60 countries to people whose survival is threatened by violence, neglect, or catastrophe, primarily due to armed conflict, epidemics, malnutrition, exclusion from health care, or natural disasters. MSF provides independent, impartial assistance to those most in need. MSF also reserves the right to speak out to bring attention to neglected crises, challenge inadequacies or abuse of the aid system, and to advocate for improved medical treatments and protocols.

In 1999, MSF received the Nobel Peace Prize."

"MSF operates independently of any political, military, or religious agendas. Medical teams conduct evaluations on the ground to determine a population's medical needs before opening programs, aiming to fill gaps that exist (rather than replicating services that are already offered) or reach communities that are not being assisted.

The key to MSF’s ability to act independently in response to a crisis is its independent funding. Ninety percent of MSF's overall funding (and 100 percent of MSF-USA's funding) comes from private, non-governmental sources. In 2009, MSF had 3.8 million individual donors and private funders worldwide." (1)

Doctors without Borders only spends 1.3% of donations on administrative costs and 12.7% on fundraising. So only $0.075 of your 5 dollar donation goes towards salaries and costs of the organization and $0.635 goes towards fundraising. For a charity this is amazing. (2)

They received an "A" from the American Institute of Philanthropy (3)

They received a 4/4 Stars from "Charity Navigator" (4)
