I’m loving all these opportunities to help out lately! This one comes from Aditi Shivaramakrishnan ’12 for PANGEA:
PANGEA, Wesleyan’s international student organisation, is helping to organise a Book Drive for the Bursary for Economically Challenged Kids. BECK provides financial assistance to academically-talented children in Chitungwiza, Zimbabwe who lack the means to attend primary and secondary school.
As a means of generating money for the BECK Donation Fund, Portia Chipendo ’09 and Akosua Nti ’09 are collecting books from various schools, which will be sold on Amazon. Profits from the sales of these books will go directly to funding the
tuition of children in BECK.
You can drop off your books at conveniently located boxes throughout the campus. All the best with finals and we look forward to your contributions!
Date: Dec. 11 – Dec. 18
Time: 12:00 AM – 8:00 AM
Place: Boxes are at Usdan, Sci Li, Olin, outside Pi, Weshop, PAC lab, Fisk (LRC Lab), Summerfields, Clark, Fauver
Here’s the facebook event. Keep up the good work, Wesleyan!
Noor Alsaleh ’12 has something important to tell you:
Remember how much books made your world come alive and pop and swirl with colors when you were a kid? Every child should be able to enjoy and take part in the incredible experience that is reading! Help Community Services House make this happen and bring back a book (or more!) when you go home for Thanksgiving break for students at Macdonough in Middletown. (Drop-off boxes will be located at Summerfields, Weshop, Olin and PI) Event ends Wednesday December 9.
