Name: Harry Keller
Location: Columbus, Ohio
Position: Political Affairs Intern

Fundraising Goal: $1,200

How did you get interested in global issues?
I have always been passionate about making global poverty a priority in politics. As the success of certain government aid has been shown with huge decreases in poverty and disease, I want to make sure that the aid does not stop and put people back where they started. Being a part of the richest country in the world, I feel it is our responsibility to aid the weak and create a world where no one will live on a dollar a day.

Why are you volunteering your time to serve the world’s poor?
As a child, I never had to worry if there was going to be food on my plate or a place to sleep. In 2015, there were 702 million people who lived in extreme poverty (less that $1.50 a day) and constantly had to worry about when they are getting their next meal and where they were going to sleep. Since I have been lucky enough to have not been put in this situation, I feel that it is my responsibility to do what I can with what I have to help the starving find food and help the sick get medicine.

Any interesting tidbits to share?
Watch Netflix, eat cereal and hangout with my friends.

  2. $100: Cook you a three course meal
  3. $500: Dye my hair blonde
