1.4 Billion Reasons: a presentation by the Global Poverty Project
Tuesday, April 23, 7:00pm
1.4 billion people on our planet live in extreme poverty. The Global Poverty Project's mission is to increase the number and effectiveness of people taking action to see an end to extreme poverty. The Global Poverty Project has developed a multi-media presentation, 1.4 Billion Reasons, that is traveling the globe engaging and inspiring audiences to understand and get involved in the movement to end extreme poverty. The presentation is built around five sections:
- What is extreme poverty?
- Can we do anything about it?
- What are the barriers to ending extreme poverty?
- Why should we care?
- What can I do?

End of Year Move-out: Collection/Recycling Drive
At the end of the year, join UD in trying to re-use, recycle, and/or donate everything you no longer want! Look for bins in residence halls and information in the neighborhood! We could also use YOUR help to collect and sort through non-perishable food, clothing, school supplies and small household items to be donated to UDSAP and St. Vincent’s. To volunteer, contact Kelly Bohrer at email@example.com or stop by Liberty Hall 107 or call 229-2516.
