Hello, my name is Jasmine and I am an ambassador for The Borgen Project, which is an a. I found this podcast through a friend of mine, whose cousin is currently pregnant, and I find the way that you approach topics and educate about motherhood and maternity is fascinating and incredibly educational. I am currently reaching out to you to see if you’d be interested in helping me promote the Borgen Project. We are an American advocacy group that carries out advocacy activities in order to promote the welfare of the world’s poor. This includes various sectors such as global poverty, women’s empowerment, and COVID-19 relief. One of the bills that we are trying to currently pass through Congress is the Reach Every Mother and Child Act, which, if passed, might be able to strengthen the US government’s efforts to end the preventable deaths of mothers, newborns and young children in developing countries.
Essentially, I’m wondering whether there might be the opportunity for an interview, or the chance to highlight the Borgen Project’s efforts in the podcast? It would be an honor to work with you.
Kind regards,
