We are proud of and humbled by OV’s investment in FeelGood and our mission these past five years! Read on for the story of inspiration and impact.

OUR IMPACT SINCE 2005
Inspiration from our blog
Our partnership with The Hunger Project dates back to 2005. Throughout 10 years, the movement has had incredible opportunities to engage with THP’s work and staff, including the annual Fall Gala in New York City. Last fall, for the first time, FeelGood was offered two full-funded spots on their Investor Trip. An incredibly generous donor, who believes in youth engagement as a critical tool to ending extreme poverty by 2030, offered the opportunity. After the great success of Dory Cooper (University of Vermont ’15) and Tim Baccarro (Stevens Insitute of Tech ’15) representing FeelGood in Bangladesh, this generous investor has stepped up yet again.
So what’s next? Well two incredibly talented, passionate, engaged, and promising youth leaders with be representing FeelGood on a THP Investor trip to Ghana this August.
We are completely thrilled and honored to announce our two representatives: Ashwini Bhide (UC Berkeley ’14) and Lauren Taber (UC Santa Barbara ’17)!
With each close of an academic year, at FeelGood we take time to reflect on the amazing hard work and success of our movement. Below is a breakdown by the numbers of what FeelGood students across the country have achieved this spring semester, this whole year, and historically toward ending extreme poverty by 2030.
Dear FeelGooders, Class of 2015:
You made it! Whether you graduated three weeks ago, or are still a couple weeks away from walking, here you are. Standing on the end of one incredible chapter of your life, and at the beginning of the next, unknown chapter.
You’ll be receiving countless of these messages this season. And we’re not here to be redundant.
But what’s most special about your college experience (well, we think so) is that you are a part of a national and global movement to end extreme poverty by 2030. WOWZA!! As you sit in your graduation ceremony, walk across the stage, take photos, and enjoy celebrations – hold this. YOU have been a part of this powerful movement, and it wouldn’t be the same without you.
If you’ve visited our blog at all in the last year, you’ve probably seen at least one of the remarkable FeelGood students that have been acknowledged and celebrated as Cheese Wiz of the Month.
As the academic year comes to close for so many of our chapters across the country, we’re taking a look back at this incredible year to celebrate all of these amazing Cheese Wizzes! Congratulations and thank you to all of these incredible students for their dedication, perseverance, and passion for ending extreme poverty by 2030.
Each month of the academic year, we highlight a FeelGood member’s contributions to their chapter and the movement as part of the FeelWHAT student newsletter. And here on the blog we’re telling their stories.
This month’s Cheese Wiz is Alissa Wertz, Deli Manager for the FeelGood chapter at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign (UIUC), who got two nominations and blew us away! Thank you to those who nominated her: Joseph Istvanek and Svitlana Koval, FeelGood UIUC’s President and PR & Marketing Chair respectively.
