Name: Jason Andreacchio
Location: Tampa, Florida
Position: Political Affairs Intern

Fundraising Goal: $1,500

How did you get interested in global issues?
I began to pay attention to the news toward the end of the Obama Presidency and quickly found passion in issues that affect ordinary people every day. I felt upset with how Congress is so often divided over issues that have no reasonable basis for partisanship bias and polarization. Helping others should not be partisan.

Why are you volunteering your time to serve the world’s poor?
I am volunteering for three pillars that set up countries. I feel morally obligated, but more than that, the economic and social motivations spill over from serving the world’s poor. Economically, reducing poverty enables people to use newfound opportunities to become educated, gain jobs, and expand markets. Moreover, reducing poverty means fixing overpopulation, reducing terrorism, and improving quality of life. All of these benefits are enough of a reason to serve the nation’s poor, but the fact that they occur simultaneously should remove all doubts.

Any interesting tidbits to share?
I am a two-degree black belt in Mixed Martial Arts. I am in the midst of starting my own nonprofit and reporting agency called Middle Ground, trying to find a “middle ground” in a world of divisive ideologies.

My compassion/humility list:
1. $50 to pie me in the face.
2. $50 for me to bike ten miles in a week.

I will do the following for any friends or family who donate in my honor…
1. I will send personalized “thank-you” videos.
2. I will share donators on my social media sites, allowing them to make a personalized message as to why they donated.
3. At the end of the campaign, I will host an informal dinner where donors may come and meet new people. I will make a speech at the dinner, thanking everyone.
4. On my social media site, I will catalogue the list of people who have contributed, the current progress, and how the money is used.
