Not sure when I first discovered Bread for the World (BFW), but I know that my life has been aimed in a different direction since that first day.
BFW provides ordinary citizens and people of faith the simple tools and direction needed to become activists on behalf of the poor and the hungry at home and around the world. Thanks to my involvement with BFW, I remained fully informed on issues that affect the weakest and most vulnerable men, women and children on earth.
But beyond reliable information, BFW has positioned me to make a difference in the lives of the impoverished by being a consistent advocate for the measures, issues and actions that attack the poverty that devastates millions of our brothers and sisters around the world.
Art Simon, past president of BFW, once told us that every time a person stops to write a letter to Congress on behalf of the poor, a life is saved. Over the years, I've become friends with many elected officials thanks to BFW. Following the leadership provided by BFW, you can really make a difference.
