Dear ONE Member,

Because of where you live, you have a unique opportunity to determine how much money the U.S. dedicates to fighting poverty in the coming year.

Your congressional representative sits on the budget committee, which allows them to determine how much poverty-focused development assistance we can expect to see in the budget.

At this point in the budget process, only you and a few others have the power to convince Congress to make fighting poverty a priority.

The international affairs budget sets the bar for poverty-focused development assistance for the coming year. It's important to set this bar as high as we can. To this end we're asking for a $2.4 billion increase over the president's international affairs budget request.

Take a moment to write your representative asking for an additional $2.4 billion in poverty-fighting funding.

In late January, over 60,000 ONE members wrote letters to the president asking him to request additional funding to alleviate poverty. Writing budget committee members is the next step, and one of our best opportunities to impact the amount of funding dedicated to building schools, providing clean water, and medication for the earth's most deadly diseases.

This is just the start of the 2008 budget cycle, but the decisions made now will shape the entire process. Send a letter to your representative and set the bar for the rest of the year.

Thank you for your voice,

Josh Peck, ONE.org
