I am raising money for The Borgen Project, a nonprofit organization that works to create legislation to expand foreign aid and reduce global poverty. This national campaign works with U.S. leaders to improve responses to the global poverty crisis. This cause is extremely important to me, and I think it can be to you too!
Did you know that over 3 billion people live in poverty, and 1.3 billion live in extreme poverty, lacking basic human needs such as food, shelter, clean water, sanitary environments, health, and education?
I have chosen to dedicate my life to tell the stories of those who are voiceless, to raise awareness for the pain and suffering around the world in order to create a better place for our future generations to live in. Children are the future, and nearly 3.1 million children are dying each year of hunger.
It's time to step up for those who have been born into a place ravaged by conflict and poverty. My goal is $500, but ANY donation can help change a life!
I am so incredibly thankful for all the support. Please check out The Borgen Project at borgenproject.org to see what we are all about!
