UNICEF success

To the generous helping hands at the University of Regina,

Thank you! Thank you! Thank you! Without your help and great contributions we wouldn’t have been able to accomplish our goal!

Three weeks ago, UNICEF on Campus held its first campaign of the year: Trick or Treat Schools for Africa. The University of Regina campus club worked in collaboration with UNICEF Canada and the Nelson Mandela Foundation to help build schools and provide an education for children in Rwanda and Malawi. Throughout the last week of October (Oct. 25-28), UNICEF on Campus, along with some great volunteers, worked towards gathering donations from students to help those in need.  Students were able to buy “orange bricks” and “blue roof shingles” to help us create our fictional school, or create teams and participate in our pumpkin carving contest to raise money. Many wonderful students came by the table to ask about what we were doing, participate in our activities, and donate as much as they could to help the next generation of students in Africa. 

With your donations, a little girl in a small village in Rwanda will realize her potential when she receives her classroom books. She will go to sleep with a smile on her face, happy that she will be able to make her dreams come true. In a few years, she will become a successful doctor that will help those who are ill in her country. Somewhere in Malawi, a little boy will be able to learn how to read and write. You have given him the power to change his life, and his world. In a few years, he will be a world-renowned author, with his books selling millions around the world. These children are the future, and their dreams will be turned into realities because of your generous helping hands. Campus UNICEF has accomplished its goal. We have raised $1266.95 with your generosity. Thank you so very much!

If you are interested to learn more about the UNICEF campus club, or would like to become one of our amazing volunteers, please send us an email at urunicef@gmail.com. We area always looking for wonderful students like yourself who have a passion to change lives, one step at a time.
