We are happy to report that due to the phenomenal generosity of Staff, Students and Faculty in this Department and friends from other U of G Departments, $1400 was raised yesterday in 1 hour at the pot luck/silent auction event in support of Nepal earthquake relief. WOW!
The funds are being couriered as we speak to UNICEF so that our $1400 will have double the impact and translate to $2800
due to the Canadian Government's commitment to match donations made to UNICEF
up to May 25/15.
Thanks to so many people, that is.....
- Silent auction item donors and "bidders" (too many to name)
- Pot luck food contributors and those who made cash "entrance" donations (too many to name)
- MOST of all..... to those who donated their time and help to organize including: Sarita & Raja Khanal, Kamal Khadka, Sierra Harris, Mitra Serajazari, Sasan Amirsadeghi, Chutinan Jaroenchai, Mike Peppard and a few I've probably forgotten! (Apologies)
I am so proud to be part of this awesome Department, one that continues to demonstrate it's empathy for those in need.
Sincerely, Jen Kingswell
