A Message From Manahil Iftikhar
I would like for you all to think for a moment, what if you were put in the place of an orphan for a day?
I am sure it is not easily imaginable, because we are so used to the facilities that we are given daily, we cannot even think of living a day without them.
Unfortunately, orphans are born without those facilities, yet due to the empathy of others, they can gain access to those facilities. Whether it is $1, or $100, any amount can help change the life of an orphan in the long run. I think it is time to turn our sympathy into empathy and act upon it!
As part of the McMaster Orphan Sponsorship (OSP), our goal is to raise a total of 25k to donate to SOS Children’s villages.
I would love it if ANY amount is contributed to reaching my goal of $432, enough to sponsor a child for a YEAR!
We can do this!

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!
