THE PART WHERE WE TELL YOU HOW MUCH MONEY WE NEED, HOW RIDICULOUSLY LITTLE IT TAKES TO DO SO MUCH GOOD, AND COMPARE IT TO HOW MUCH WESTERNERS CONSUME SO THAT THE CONTRAST MAKES YOU FEEL LIKE THIS IS A VERY REASONABLE THING TO ASK.
A few months ago one of our community engagement volunteers took us out to a migrant camp near a truck stop to meet a family he knew. They have 2 small girls ages 4 and 2. The father works very hard for the Thai land owner where the camp is located but they were still not making enough to get by.
This family was on the verge of splitting up because they couldn't make ends meet.
