What: Inspiring, fun-filled, gourmet Benefit DinnerWhy: "Every child deserves a fifth birthday," is the theme of the benefit. A goal of RESULTS is to reduce preventable early childhood deaths to near zero. When RESULTS was formed 30 years ago 42,000 children died needlessly every day from common childhood diseases. Today that number has been cut in half, in large part because of RESULTS’ volunteers advocating for basic medical treatment.

RESULTS, Inc. is an international, grassroots citizen's advocacy organization whose purpose is to create the political will to end hunger and the worst aspects of poverty. RESULTS Educational Fund, a 501(c)(3) organization, focuses on making an impact in these same areas through training and education. The two nonprofits work together to accomplish these goals through research, education and training, public events, media coverage and advocacy. Our research analyzes U.S. spending on hunger and poverty at home and abroad and seeks out sustainable effective remedies.
Our campaigns focus attention on these solutions and support legislators in making them national priorities. We combine effective non-partisan lobbying and powerful education through persistent media coverage and public events. These efforts have shifted billions of dollars into cost-effective programs that have saved millions of lives and helped countless people to rise out of poverty. Through the RESULTS network of training and support, ordinary citizens use their democratic power to create a world of sufficiency and justice for all.
