Make the most of Microsoft’s giving month | Letter
The amount of people suffering from hunger is equal to the combined populations of the United States, Canada and the European Union. It’s a startling fact and can appear daunting to some to even attempt to make a dent in reducing global poverty.
However, there are some great programs and groups doing something about it. This month is Microsoft’s giving month in which they match donations $25 and up made by its employees. Programs like these must be taken full advantage of while around. The $25 from individuals becomes $50 for organizations making a difference around the world.
Nonprofits such as The Borgen Project, a group that advocates to Congress to make foreign aid a top priority of U.S. foreign policy, are better able to expand their programs and impact as a result of these campaigns. I urge all Microsoft employees to make the most of this generous giving month put on by Microsoft.
