Message from Kevin Drake and Sue Malavolta
We all live very fortunate lives. We have all of our basic needs met, and then some. In lieu of gifts, we are asking our friends and families to donate to poverty relief and economic self-sufficiency across the globe. The organization that we support, Mercy Corps, is working to combat poverty, the effects of natural disasters, and to build sustainable economic growth. Mercy Corps mission is to alleviate suffering, poverty and oppression by helping people build secure, productive and just communities. Mercy Corps believes that solving social problems in the developing world requires blending sustainable, entrepreneurial strategies with a deep knowledge of local culture and context. Kevin has supported Mercy Corps for the past 5 years and we hope that you will join us in supporting their efforts.
