Southwest China Earthquake Relief
April 29th & 30th 12:00 pm to 5:30 pm
Donation Table At NVC 2nd Floor Lobby
We Will Be Raising Funds Via Cash & Credit Card
The Chinese Students and Scholars Association will be raising funds for earthquake victims in Sichuan province, China. On April 20th, 2013 a magnitude 7.0 earthquake in southwestern China has left at least 193 dead, 25 missing and over 12,211 people injured. Tens of thousands of people moved into tents and cars, unable to return home or too afraid to go back as aftershocks continue. A large number of schools have been damaged and at least three elementary school children were killed.
Please find it in your heart to help these unfortunate people who have lost everything in this tragedy.
We will be raising money for victims of the 7.0 magnitude earthquake that occurred in China. We are donating the funds collected to “Save the Children”, an independent organization which has set aside an emergency fund for the 2013 China earthquake. Save the Children has a strong track record of assisting victims in China’s previous natural disasters. The organization has been working in China for two decades, responding to over 17 disasters in that time.
