A Message From Mahmood Haddara
As Salamu Alaikum (peace be upon you) everyone! My name is Mahmood, and I am a third year student at Mac, the current president of the MSA, and undoubtedly the worst singer you have ever heard.
If this campaign reaches $5000 by the OSP gala on February 13, I will utterly humiliate myself in front of 100 people by singing a song that the audience chooses!
It costs $432 to sponsor a child for one year, meaning that if we reach our target we will be able to sponsor 11 orphans for a year. Give whatever you can, and know that not only are you doing an amazing thing by helping people in need, but you are also going to make the evening of Feb 13 incredibly miserable for me :)
About This Campaign
The charity we are working with is SOS Children's Villages, a non-religious and non-political charity that has a stellar international reputation. Additionally, it has schools, orphanages, programs in nearly every country in the world which ensures that this Campaign will be a truly global initiative. It costs $432 to sponsor a child for one year and $300 to sponsor a village. Each participant can select the location of where their contribution is directed.
Four competitions will be held through Giveffect:
1. Which faculty can raise the most money.
2. Which student club can raise the most money.
3. Which team can raise the most money.
4. Which individual can raise the most money.
We invite you to be part of this great campus-wide initiative!
