Name: Michael Reinhardt
Location: Burlington, Vermont
Position: Political Affairs Intern

Fundraising Goal: $500

How did you get interested in global issues?
We live in an interconnected globalized world, where all issues are global and all global issues are local.

Why are you volunteering your time to serve the world’s poor?
I believe it is fundamentally unjust and strategically unwise for U.S. lawmakers to neglect the issue of global poverty because it stains our moral credibility and damages our foreign and domestic interests.

Any interesting tidbits to share?
I am minoring in both Chinese and Spanish, I have flown an airplane and I currently also intern for a solar company.

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

  1. For each dollar given, I will film myself doing that many push-ups, sit-ups or jumping jacks
  2. For any donations over $100, I will film myself eating any gross food concoction of your choice
