BENEFITING: BORGEN PROJECT
Hi! I’m reaching out to let you know about an amazing organization I am involved in called the Borgen Project. The Borgen Project is a non-profit that advocates for the world’s poor and is working to make poverty a focus of U.S. foreign policy. With over 200 volunteers throughout the United States, we operate through four major strategies: building awareness of global issues, educating citizens on basic advocacy, mobilizing people across the US to share their voice in Congress, and advocating to make poverty a political priority.
Volunteers like myself work with our Congressional leaders to help generate change and secure support for crucial poverty-reducing legislation. I chose to be involved with The Borgen Project because I believe that we can all play a role in influencing the quality of life in this world. We are blessed to be living in a developed world and we can use our resources to make a huge impact.
I am seeking your support for The Borgen Project. I ask that you consider making a contribution of any amount so that we can build and maintain our advocacy efforts. Your gift would not only address the critical global issue of poverty, but also allow for me, and others like me, to develop skills and experience related to making a positive and lasting change in the world. You can make a donation at http://www.crowdrise.com/hedychenborgen/fundraiser/hedychen or www.borgenproject.org/donate. Feel free to contact me with any questions at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Without support from people like you, I would not have the opportunity to be involved in such an impactful organization and I thank you in advance for your consideration and support. Every gift helps!
