Sample Facebook Post 2:

Federal spending on global development amounts to just about ONE PERCENT of the total U.S. budget, yet it is critical to advancing U.S. interests overseas. U.S. humanitarian and development programs have improved the preparedness and resilience of communities around the world to combat future emergencies. Global health investments strengthen health systems abroad, helping to prevent, detect, and effectively respond to emerging public health threats before they affect our country. 

Simply put, #ForeignAid makes US safer! #WePlan to call on our leaders to continue the government’s longstanding support for global development! #AmericaLeads #Fund150 #WePlan
