BENEFITING: BORGEN PROJECT
Hello Lovely Humans,
I am currently working with a nonprofit organization called The Borgen Project that advocates for the world's poor by working to make poverty a focus of US foreign policy. This is an issue that means a lot to me- no should be born into a world that denies them basic life necessities and systematically prevents them from escaping poverty.
Aid in developing countries must be seen as an investment. It will benefit our economy by expanding our consumer base overseas and increasing our export-based jobs. It will also assist in stabilizing the economies of developing nations which will significantly diminish potential threats to international security.
More importantly- helping the poor and hungry people of this earth should be a MORAL IMPERATIVE! Our nation spent over $660 billion on the military last year and less than $30 billion on foreign aid. Altogether, the US ranks 19th for development aid among other wealthy nations, contributing only a mere .3% of the GNI annually to aid for the world's poor.
I'm asking for your help! If you feel inspired to do so please make a donation to The Borgen Project today. Your contribution is needed to aid our advocacy efforts.
