Name: Hannah Whitaker
Location: Lexington, Kentucky
Position: Political Affairs Intern

Fundraising Goal: $750

How did you get interested in global issues?
I believe that when given the privilege of wealth and prosperity, a country should do what they can to help alleviate the calamity of others.

Why are you volunteering your time to serve the world’s poor?
I know this internship will be a great experience for me to network with others and gain familiarity in working in this field. But, more importantly, this allows me to make a meaningful contribution to others.

Any interesting tidbits to share?
I love crafting, baking, and cooking!

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

  1. Want a delicious, home cooked meal but aren’t great in the kitchen? $75 to cook dinner
  2. Want some time away from the kids but you’d like to stay at home? $100 to take kids out for the day
  3. Chore package: clean house, water plants, take the dog on a walk, mow lawn, etc. for $150
