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 oxfam.org to find out how to give.
