Help Haiti

08/13/2010

As many of you remember, the earthquake in Haiti devastated hundreds of thousands of peoples’ lives. The Student Assembly is proud to say that the Cornell community participated greatly by helping to raise funds with everything from bake sales to concerts. After this immediate relief however, it is now necessary to create a long term plan of development for what is now one of the poorest countries in the world.

The organization Commit in September is asking college campuses to get the word out and get students to sign a petition urging our government to support initiatives that empower Haitian citizens to lead local efforts of development within their own country. It takes literally two seconds to sign your name and can make a world of a difference. For more information please go to www.commitinseptember.com
