Now, that the holiday season has approached, the idea of wasteful spending is unappealing to many people. More people than ever want to do good and make a difference. Enter Mercy Corps.
With a mission of turning poverty, natural disasters, and conflict into opportunities for progress, Mercy Corps help people improve their lives. What does that mean to you? It means you can do a lot of good for less than the price of that latest gaming system or big screen TV you have your eyes on.
- For $45 you can improve sanitation in a far off village by donating a latrine.
- For $58 you can help a child soldier overcome the scars of war through counseling, schooling, and job opportunities.
- For $18 you can help feed a family who has been affected by a natural disaster.
- For $29 you can help a farmer grow an acre of rice.
