Name: Logan Derbes
Location: Tuscaloosa, Alabama/Pottsville, PA
Position: Writer Intern

Fundraising Goal: $500

How did you get interested in global issues?
I currently study International Relations at the University of Alabama where I found my interest in global issues. It began to flourish after having a global studies and cultural geography class that focused on global issues pertaining to poverty, education, politics, travel, and societal issues.

Why are you volunteering your time to serve the world’s poor?
I believe that small actions can cause big change. By writing articles, fundraising and contacting my state representatives, I believe that I can make a small change in people’s lives by volunteering my time to serve the world’s poor. I hope that educating others and expanding my knowledge on global poverty will help initiate a large change in how we help the poor.

Any interesting tidbits to share?
I really enjoy traveling. I have been to 9 countries and counting! I love food, so whenever I go somewhere, I make it a habit to try something new. I have even eaten snails in France!

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

  1. $50: Cook dinner for you!
  2. $40: I will make my famous mac and cheese!
  3. $20: Receive an embarrassing childhood photo!
  4. $25: I will bake a cake for you!
