SCOTTSDALE, AZ--(Marketwired - January 20, 2014) - It's no secret that poverty is a worldwide problem. Currently it's estimated that more than 1 billion people are lacking adequate access to clean drinking water, including an estimated 400 million children. Also due to improper funding or infrastructure, 19 million children worldwide remain unvaccinated and a quarter of all humans live without electricity (approximately 1.6 billion people).
To help bring increased awareness to these issues and raise money to support projects around the world, MyJobChart.com is announcing that MANNA Worldwide has become a charity partner. As a MyJobChart.com charity partner, MANNA Worldwide will be listed alongside several other key charities that are able to receive donations directly from the more than 580,000 MyJobChart.com members.
"I hope that adding MANNA Worldwide to our list of charity partners is just the first step toward making a difference for one child, one family or one community," noted MyJobChart.com Founder and CEO Gregg Murset. "This organization is working very hard to break the cycle of poverty for needy children around the world and I know that our members will use this opportunity to help."
