RELIEF PRINT DOES IT AGAIN!
Student-led philanthropic group, Relief Prints, has amazed us again with their successful fundraising program for victims and families of Sandy Hook Elementary! Prints were sold for a $5 donation; in two days, they raised $620 for the cause. These funds will be donated directly to the families of victims via The United Way. A huge congratulations to Gabrielle Thompson, Sarah Kambara, and Marysol Stepanof for holding such a successful event! Thank you to the students who donated their designs to the cause and for those who volunteered their time to help at the event!
Relief Prints has applied to be selected for Davis Projects for Peace, “an initiative for all students at the Davis United World College Scholars Program partner schools to design grassroots projects for the summer of 2013 - anywhere in the world - which promote peace and address the root causes of conflict among parties.” (http://www.davisprojectsforpeace.org/qa). Their vision is to spread creativity, hope and civic relief by traveling the states and engaging communities throughout the country in their Relief Print programs. They have made it to the second round of selections, and we wish them the best of luck!
