Name: Taylor Tody
Location: Rockford, MN
Position: Political Affairs Intern

Fundraising Goal: $750

How did you get interested in global issues?
I’ve always had a passion for people, but after my year as a Rockford Ambassador, I realized I wanted to help more than ever. I strive to be active in my community and make a difference where it really counts. I have always been a lover and my passion for others burns bright. I believe every human has the right to a healthy life and pairing with The Borgen Project allows me to speak on behalf of those who are not as fortunate as I have been.

Why are you volunteering your time to serve the world’s poor?
I have fallen in love with volunteering over the course of my life. I love meeting and talking with new people, I love seeing those you are helping faces light up, and I love knowing I am making a difference. There’s nothing better than knowing you are contributing to a better lifestyle for someone else!

Any interesting tidbits to share?
I always say my favorite things are people, politics, and puppies. Besides those, I love volleyball, and I am in my second year as a coach! I am currently volunteering as a reading tutor with Reading Partners at Anishinabe Academy in Minneapolis!

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

  1. For EVERY donation a handwritten, custom thank you letter!
  2. For every $15 donation, a candy bar of your choice included with the thank you letter 
  3. For every $50 donation, I will babysit your kiddos for 1 night
  4. For every $75 donation, I will cook you dinner
  5. For every $100+ donation, I will make you your own yard sign that says “I DONATED $(???) TO THE BORGEN PROJECT… What did you do today?” OR I will post a video to my social media of me thanking you for your donation!
