Earthquake in HAITI: Contribute to the cause

Wendy . Blog Shakespeare slept here! Published 18 January 2010

Please help the people in HAITI who are suffering from a 7.0 magnitute earthquake and 5+ magnitude aftershocks. The UEM VOLUNTEERS have set up tables, MAIN HALL, BUILDING A to collect money for HAITI through the CRUZ ROJA, the Spanish Red Cross . This initiative came from the 3rd and 4th year LAW students. They will be manning tables from 9:00 to 14:00 all this week. We know that it is exam time and everyone is busy, however they need more volunteers to collect money. Marta Acosta Soria and Alvaro Calvo Giralt came to the UEM LAB to ask for our collaboration. We are sending volunteers to help with the tables and have set up a collection box in the reception area of the UEM LAB which will be available from 8:00-21:00 all this week. If you have an hour or two to spare, please come by the VOLUNTARIADO tables to sign up for a shift or contact 20610076@live.uem.es . Be sure to put VOLUNTEERING time for HAITI INITIATIVE on the subject line. Remember, being a volunteer is an important part of your university experience and is mandatory on your CV for a job search in the global job market.

Thank you for your collaboration. Wendy

These things always happen in the poorest places... it's a shame, like when the tsunami hit New Orleans' shore during the hurricane.
