Name: Kasey Kershaw
Location: Rexburg, Idaho
Position: Political Affairs Intern

Fundraising Goal: $700

How did you get interested in global issues?
I love to learn about cultures and events of the world, but the more I learned about other countries, the more I realized that they need assistance. They need the action of people like you and me to bring awareness to congressional leaders, those who have the power to make a difference using political action.

Why are you volunteering your time to serve the world’s poor?
I believe that the best way to decrease poverty, even on such a large scale, is through compassion. Whether you are out in Africa teaching people how to build irrigation systems or in the United States donating some of your extra cash to a non-profit, you are making a difference. I want to be a part of anything which will bring positivity and change in our world. I am very blessed to live in a first world country with many benefits and safeties, but many others are not as lucky as I am.

Any interesting tidbits to share?
I love to hike, lift weights, read, write, and paint.

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

  1. $50: I will send you a video of me attempting to do a handstand.
  2. $100: I will write your name on my forehead in Sharpie.
  3. $175: I will cook you dinner (if you live near me)
