Submit to the Borgen Magazine

Hello!
I hope you all are are having a great end to the year!
I am currently interning at The Borgen Project in Seattle which is a national campaign that fights to end global poverty by advocating and mobilizing the public. I was wondering if you all would be able to send out the link to the BORGEN Magazine (www.borgenmagazine.com) to student lists, faculty lists, websites and other people that would be interested so that we can increase our visibility. It is a really great magazine that I have the opportunity to help work on and write some visual articles on so it would be awesome for people on and around campus to be able to see it and keep track of what is going on around the world!
We are also looking for experts to feature in the magazine (they just have to email back answers to like 4-5 questions and send in a photo) so if you know of anyone interested or anyone that wants to tell the world about the amazing work they do have them let me know by replying to this email or emailing me at advani@borgenproject.org!
Let me know if you need anymore info from me!

Thank you so much!
