Name: Megan Turner
Location: Seattle, WA
Position: PR/Marketing Intern

Fundraising Goal: $700

How did you get interested in global issues?
Volunteering at a local school for recently immigrated youth

Why are you volunteering your time to serve the world’s poor?
I am volunteering to serve the world’s poor because I firmly believe that no one should be subjected to starvation or general financial distress. When world poverty is reduced, the world at large is stronger financially, politically, and socially.

Any interesting tidbits to share?
I am an artist, and I will be a graduate student in the near future!

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

  1. $25: Create a small/medium painting for you, or embroider something
  2. $60: Cook you a meal
  3. $100: Create a large painting
  4. $150: Crochet you a blanket
  5. $250: Run 15 miles (from Shorecrest High School to Bellevue Square Mall)
