BENEFITING: BORGEN PROJECT
For my internship with The Borgen Project, I am raising money in hope to aid the fight against global poverty. Right now, the number of people suffering from hunger is greater than the population of US, Canada and the EU combined.
Almost half of the children in the world (1 billion/2.2 billion) live in poverty.
Every 3.6 seconds, one person dies of starvation.
More than 1.3 billion people worldwide live on less than $1.25 a day.
In order to end world hunger, it would require 30 billion dollars a year. In comparison to the United States' military budget (530 billion) and US War Spending (130 billion), it's hard to understand why we aren't doing more.
The littlest donation would mean so much. Please help the world's hungry!
