The U.S. Congress has begun negotiating issues surrounding the 'fiscal cliff' that is set to take effect January 2, 2013.
If we don't act, the International Affairs Budget could be gutted – even though it provides lifesaving aid for millions, and makes up barely 1% of the federal budget.
It is critical that we raise our voices and urge Congress to support the International Affairs Budget which provides vital, lifesaving services such as food assistance, maternal and child health, and programs that help men and women survive emergencies.
This budget has a very real impact on the lives of the women and men in developing countries, and demonstrating your support will make all the difference.
If you take action and have not already registered, you will receive periodic updates and communications from CARE.
Please Support the International Affairs Budget
Dear [Decision Maker],
Sincerely,[Your Name] [Your Address] [City, State ZIP]
