Name: Richard Cochran
Location: Phoenix, Arizona
Position: Public Relations Intern

Fundraising Goal: $1,000

How did you get interested in global issues?
I find it interesting that when helping the world’s poor, we actually help ourselves. The economy becomes stronger, and we make the world a better/safer place.

Why are you volunteering your time to serve the world’s poor?
It’s important to advocate for those who can’t advocate for themselves. Changing the lives of the world’s impoverished not only helps those in need, but helps us as a country.

Any interesting tidbits to share?
In my free time, I enjoy spending time with my dogs! They love helping those in need!
