Don’t Create More Fear in this World


Hey Kevin,

Last week, President Trump announced his intention to cut funding for foreign assistance by 28%.

At just 1% of the US budget, America’s foreign aid is a vital part of its national security, fosters America’s influence in the world, and saves millions of lives. Since 1990, American foreign aid has helped halve the number of kids who die from preventable causes!

President Trump’s budget is now in the hands of congress, and they are the only ones who can stop these huge cuts. Call now to see if your member of congress will stand up for the world’s poor.

Many Republican members of congress have already stepped up to demonstrate their support for foreign assistance. Republican Congressman Ted Yoho explained, “At a time when American leadership is need more than ever, we must continue to invest in the International Affairs budget.”

Getting girls into school, providing clean water and sanitation, and protecting children from polio should not be partisan issues.

Call your member of congress now and ask them to stand up for lifesaving programs and protect foreign assistance.

Millions of lives are at stake.
