BENEFITING: BORGEN PROJECT
Did you know 1 billion children are deprived of one or more services essential to survival and development? And that 22 million infants are not protected from diseases by routine immunization? And that 101 million children are not attending primary school?
These questions aren't meant to depress you, though the statistics can indeed be unsettling. Rather, the questions are meant to draw your attention to some fixable problems in the world.
We can be a part of the solution.
On September 20th, I'm running a half-marathon in Milwaukee, and I hope to use the event to raise money for The Borgen Project, a nonprofit that addresses the root causes of global poverty. You can check out their website at http://borgenproject.org/
For that reason, I'd be so grateful if you'd be willing to help me reach my goal of raising $200.00! Every donation goes toward fighting global poverty (and builds good karma for you).
