Name: Abraham Rohrig
Location: New York, New York
Position: Writer Intern

Fundraising Goal: $500

How did you get interested in global issues? I was exposed to the scope and magnitude of global poverty both on my high school’s debate team and in history courses during my first year in college. The condition of the world’s most vulnerable populations struck me as one of the most urgent moral issues of our generation.

Why are you volunteering your time to serve the world’s poor? Relatively little effort on my part can allow people in the developing world to live far better lives. I am excited to embrace opportunities to help!

Any interesting tidbits to share? I was born in Hungary, and I have lived in New York City my whole life. I go to Deep Springs College, a small college on a ranch bordering the Eastern Sierra mountains in California. I love playing basketball and discussing hip-hop.

My compassion/humility list:
I will do the following for any friends or family who donates in my honor…

  1. Make a customized postcard for $10
  2. Any household chore for $20
  3. Cook homemade gnocchi for dinner for $50
