    Our winnings will support our programs around the globe — including helping us bring together youth from around the globe for positive social action via a Global Citizen Corps Youth Summit. Photo:

Despite being a rainy, post-holiday Monday afternoon, there are cheers around Mercy Corps' headquarters. Why? Mercy Corps was just announced as the winner of Western Union's 50 Days of Giving Campaign! That means $150,000 will go to families in need around the world, and support our youth programs here in the United States!

We truly couldn't have won this money without the continued support of our donors, supporters and staff — including lots of Global Citizen Corps youth leaders — who voted every day for 50 days! Our Facebook fans definitely lifted us to victory during the last few days of the campaign, so if you're not already a fan, here's a perfect opportunity to go join a great group of supporters.

On behalf of the entire Mercy Corps team, and the beneficiaries we serve, thank you for helping us secure this funding. We couldn't have done it without you!
