Post from Maria Zamora (B.S. student in Biology):
Academy of Science (the official student organization for NSCI majors) is starting a fundraiser to raise money for a program called the Water Project (https://thewaterproject.org/). Specifically, our big fundraising event will be an event called The Water Challenge (https://thewaterproject.org/thewaterchallenge), in which people are encouraged to sign a promise card, give up other drinks other than water for two weeks, then donate the money they would have spent on other drinks to the organization.
We feel that this project coordinates well with St. Edward’s mission, and because the Water Project creates many opportunities for people in places without any clean water.
An information session about the project will be held Wednesday, Feb. 24 at 7:30 pm in Carter Auditorium. (NEW DATE AND LOCATION!) The tabling days are the 24th and 25th.
Contact Maria Zamora for more information.
