Good day, all! So I’m going to do something that I am not entirely comfortable with…I’m going to ask you for help. But before I do so, let me provide you a little context for the sake of transparency if nothing else.
I’m currently in school, my last semester to be exact. In order to graduate, I must complete my internship. One of the things this internship is helping me with is marketing and a calling on those around me for aid. So what help do I need, you ask?
The Mission at hand
I’m currently volunteering for The Borgen Project. If you’re not familiar with the nonprofit, I highly encourage you to spend time at borgenproject.org. The Borgen Project fights to end global poverty by building nonpartisan support for life-saving initiatives where they’re needed most. Today, I’m writing to ask you to contribute to my fundraising campaign. As an advocacy organization, donations to The Borgen Project go towards public awareness campaigns that teach individuals to take action and effectively amplify the voices of the world’s poor.
We’re all more interconnected than we think, and the U.S. is in the best position to alleviate inequalities worldwide. For example, The Borgen Project advocated for the Global Food Security Act which became law in 2016. As of 2019, 23 million people now live above the poverty line and 5 million families are no longer suffering from hunger due to increased sustainable growth, such as improved agricultural practices, women’s economic empowerment and food security. With the consistent work of The Borgen Project’s volunteers, this initiative and other key programs help people maintain a more stable and secure lifestyle. Plus, these global investments also help to create U.S. jobs and protect our national security interests.
I am reaching out to important people in my life that support me and I hope you will consider joining me in this fight for poverty-reduction efforts. You can join me in one or both ways:
- Donate. It’s quick, simple and you get to take part in fighting poverty! On average, every $1 donated to The Borgen Project helps build support for key poverty-reduction bills that benefit 92 lives. Please input – Kelsey Jordan – in the ‘On Behalf Of’ field when donating online at borgenproject.org/donate so that your donation counts towards my goal of raising $ 500.
Checks can also be mailed to:
The Borgen Project,
2661 N Pearl St.
PMB #442, Tacoma, WA 98407
Please include Kelsey Jordan in the Memo field of the check.
- Mobilize. I really want to multiply my impact. Even if you reach out to a few people and find two individuals to contribute, that would help immensely!
I believe in a world in which no person should live in extreme poverty, and that is why I am so grateful to spread awareness about this cause. Anything you can do to help would be greatly appreciated!
I truly would appreciate your help as I go on this journey to reaching my goal and the successful completion of my degree.
Love you all,
