According to 14-year-old Julien Leitner, $2 can change the world.  Last year, the Oregon teen created a charity designed to do just that. He founded the Archimedes Alliance, an organization that asks 1 million people to donate $2 for a worthy cause, he told Portland Monthly Magazine.  “It hit me that I might not be able to do something on my own, but there has to be a billion other people like me who want to make a difference but feel they can’t,” Leitner told the Oregonian. “I thought, ‘What if everyone just pooled their resources?'”  To date, the Archimedes Alliance has raised $18,959 with a goal of $2 million. Donations are made on the organization’s website. Donors are asked to vote for one of the possible benefiting charities: Invisible Children, Outreach International or Village Reach. The charity with the most votes will receive the six-figure sum.  Leitner launched his initiative with a 100-second video describing the logic behind his lofty goal. He points to the ancient Greek mathematician, Archimedes, who said, ‘Give me a lever long enough, and a place to stand, and I can move the Earth.’  “Together, we are the lever. You are the lever. It’s time to move the Earth,” Leitner writes in a letter on the organization’s website.  Leitner has appealed to the news media to spread his message — his candor sets him apart. He’s spoken at the Portland State University’s digital media conference, given numerous interviews and even doled out advice on how to use social media fundraise effectively, MSNBC reports.
