From Sadichchha Adhikari ’16:
Aside from a week-long bake sale in Usdan from Tuesday – Friday (lunch and dinner), we will be holding a Henna event in SciLi this Sunday done by none other than Sisam Acharya. There is a suggested donation of $4, but feel free to give as much as you can.
All proceeds are going to the International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies, who are responding incredibly to the disastrous earthquake in Nepal.
We are accepting also Venmo payments made out to: Michelle Lee
Thanks! See you there!
Date: Sunday, May 3
Time: 11 AM – 11 PM
Place: Science Library
Cost: Suggested Donation of $4
Haitian Prime Minister Jean-Max Bellerive believes death toll from yesterday’s 7.0-magnitude earthquake will be in the hundreds of thousands. If you’ve been following the devastation in Port-au-Prince and might be interested in donating some extra cash to the relief effort, here, courtesy of MSNBC, is a list of reputable, charitable organizations currently active in the nation.
Or, a simpler and more immediate method:
Simply text “HAITI” to “90999” and a donation of $10 will be given automatically to the Red Cross to help with relief efforts, charged to your cell phone bill (more information).
Lastly, some hopefully common sense tips from the FBI to avoid post-natural-disaster relief fraud.
