Although Tricia was already familiar with the lack of clean drinking water in developing countries, Global Citizen helped “deepen [her] understanding by describing the related factors, key numerical figures, and world leaders who could play a critical role in settling these issues.”

Meet Lori who won tickets to the Sam Smith show at Toyota Center in Houston, TX on August 14th

Lori is a major supporter of women’s rights and equality, and is aware of “how the stats reflect higher poverty levels among women than men.” Lori thinks that because women are at a greater risk, that it “really makes a difference in people's perspectives and raises the question of how much I’m currently doing to change this, and if I’m doing anything at all.” The Global Citizen website allows Lori to stay informed in a “fun interactive way.”

Meet Whitney Cunningham who won tickets to the Brandi Carlile show at Britt Pavilion in Jacksonville, OR on September 13th

Whitney is enthusiastic about the importance of education, noting that “education is key, and although we don't yet have equal learning opportunities for everyone, I support your work in the effort to provide that.” She’s hopeful that “education and generosity of spirit will end poverty.”

Meet Emily Crandall! She won tickets to the Grace Potter show at Britt Pavilion in Jacksonville, OR on September 13th

One issue that resonated with Emily was the lack of food distribution.

On Global Citizen, she realized that “there is enough food for all, [though] some areas receive less than others. It’s a huge factor when it [comes to] dealing with world hunger.”
