Fordham's Global Outreach team is raising money to help learn about and fight issues surrounding urban poverty in Camden, New Jersey.

Hi,

My name is Abiezer Mendez and I am a Junior at Fordham University at Lincoln Center. I, along with five other Fordham community members, will be traveling to Camden, New Jersey on January 8th, 2011 for one week to learn about, and to help fight the issues surrounding urban poverty.

Camden, with a population of about 80,000, is the second poorest city in the United States. 50% of the population is illiterate and every resident of the city falls below the poverty line.

I ask for your assistance in helping to offset the cost of the trip. Your donation will help us to achieve solidarity with the Camden community in the hope that they will see a brighter future.

For more information on the trip and Camden, please visit the following sites:

Thank You,

Abiezer Mendez
