Fighting Poverty with Passion

Announcement: “Stand with Haiti” Campaign

Dear Members of the Tulane University Community:

On Tuesday, January 19, 2010, the Center for Public Service will launch a campaign in support of “Stand with Haiti.” “Stand with Haiti” is the official donation campaign of Partners in Health (PIH), an organization working to bring modern medical care to poor communities around the world. PIH has been working in Haiti for over 20 years and is a partner of the University Technical Assistance in Support of Global AIDS project (UTAP), which aims to support global HIV/AIDS prevention programs. PIH is also one of three organizations that the Tulane School of Public Health and Tropical Medicine has recommended that the Tulane community support.

Beginning next week, staff members from the Center will visit university administrative and academic departments to solicit support for this campaign. We will be asking departments to allow CPS to place donation containers in high traffic areas with the goal of raising $10,000 in funds, less than $2 per member of the Tulane Community.

We know that many of you have already made donation to worthy organizations, but we ask that you consider supporting the efforts of the “Stand with Haiti” campaign by making a donation via the collection containers in your department or directly through our fundraising page at http://act.pih.org/page/outreach/view/earthquake_group/TulaneUniversity

Thank you for your support!
