Here's a way that you can save a life and fight one of the world's deadliest diseases this week...so much power in small decisions with huge ripples in other's lives...and we help eliminate MALARIA in Africa...
The CU bookstore is has set up a donation box for any textbooks that
students want to return at the end of this semester. The CEO, Darren
Campbell, met with some members of CUSG and explained that they would
send the proceeds from the donated books to help meet the needs of
others in our world today. The bookstore will not only take the value of
those donated textbooks, but would also add an extra 10% to be donated.
The proceeds from these donated books will go directly toward the
purchase and distribution of long-lasting insecticide-treated bed nets
that will protect the life of two or more children in sub-Saharan
Africa. Each bed net costs just $6 and can reduce malaria incidence by
more than half. Every day in our world, malaria kills more than 2000
kids, mainly from the bites of mosquitoes.
There will be a book donation box with some more pictures and
information about this chance to respond to this global disease
available during textbook buy back time during Finals Week. If you want
to donate any of your textbooks and save the lives of children in
Africa, please drop off your books in the donation box provided in the
CU bookstore. The ACT:S student organization on campus will be
sponsoring more awareness and fundraising events to respond to the
malaria crisis next fall. Our plan is to distribute these bed nets as
part of a global opportunities trip to Zambia next summer in partnership
with World Vision. Thanks for considering to end your semester by
making a difference in the lives of people in our world today!
