LOS ANGELES, CA (Catholic Online) - Did you know that you can be part of a poverty-busting, hunger eradicating team? You don't need to travel overseas or even leave your seat. You can accomplish all this right now, right where you are, thanks to modern technology.

Modern technology has brought the entire world within arm's reach. Think about it. With a few keystrokes or a swipe of your finger, you can shop and order merchandise from anyplace around the globe. Even if you order a small item, the instant you submit your order it appears on a screen far away and people spring into action.

Help provide quality learning tools to kids today!

This is an incredible power and we use it almost every day. Some of us may even work in industries where we are the ones springing into action with each order. Think of the millions of items purchased online every day. Now imagine what happens when we leverage this power to do good.

Catholic Team Global is ready to leverage this power to do good by donating another set of XO Tablets to a school in need. It starts with you, the reader, by generously donating as little as $10. When enough funds are gathered, an order is placed and the tablets are shipped and distributed to a school that provides moral education to children.

Moral education is important because that's how we solve corruption, one of the key contributors to poverty. Evil is often a consequence of ignorance and by curing ignorance, we stop evil before it happens.

When kids learn, they become better prepared as adults, able to provide for their own needs. The entire Catholic Church is united in a mission to eradicate world hunger by 2025 and if possible, to eliminate absolute poverty as well. Several studies and organizations have pointed out that both goals are reasonably possible within the next two decades thanks to the pace of modern development.

However, the kids that grow in these years need to be prepared to thrive in a world infused with technology. The XO Tablet is a quality learning tool that teaches kids how to use technology while also learning their lessons in class.

If you act now, right where you are, you may not feel like you're doing much. Donating just $10 is easy and effortless. Yet, despite the convenience of the transaction, your gift has a huge impact. It makes a difference in the lives of the kids who pick up an entire library of books in a single lightweight, easy-to-use tablet.

You can make a difference, right now. Use your power for good, today.
