Mandy Mulder plans to visit the poorest areas in America.

Taking a closer look at poverty


Mandy Mulder isn't like most people. She doesn't just want to help people. She wants to personally experience their plight.

Mulder's passion for helping people will lead her on a three-month odyssey across America next spring. But Mulder won't see any tourist sights. She will spend her time on the road caring for the poor, hungry and destitute.
