Hopefully by redefining the way that funds are distributed through the GIVE act, it will help build programs where people’s needs are met. There needs to be a bigger drive in our society to help those in need, I would know as I am interning for an organization that helps fight global poverty. There are 963 million people that go to sleep hungry every night, and 25,000 that die every day from hunger and malnutrition. The Borgen Project ( has some great ideas to help educate the countries that are home to all those suffering through hunger and to give them the tools and resources to grow sustainable food sources. Hopefully by passing H.R. 1388 it will help Americans to come up with innovative ways to help the people in need.
