Hunger Text-To-Give Table


We were in the Northwest Dining Hall today raising money for famine relief in Somalia through a text-to-give program that instantly sends $10 to Oxfam's relief program. We raised $800 which will provide instant relief to families in need in the middle of this crisis.

The thing I find most shocking is how little attention the famine is receiving, so if this is news to you….Somalia is the first U.N. declared famine since 1985; where crop failures, government shutdown, and territorial warring has caused the death of at least 90 children per day from starvation.

While $800 is just a drop in a very large bucket, its helping keep people alive. We appreciate everyone who volunteered and gave money and we encourage anyone reading this to visit to find out how to give.
