The school year at Northwestern has officially begun, and we were very excited to welcome both our new and returning members this year. After some tough decision making with the application process, we picked a diverse group of students, who we feel will really contribute to GlobeMed and have a strong interest in global health.
In our first meeting, we had a guest speaker from the Peace Corps, which was a great way to start of the year, as forming relationships with other agencies interested in global health gives our members a chance to work with them and understand their goals. After an icebreaker to help our members get to know each other, our GlobalHealthU went over GlobeMed’s evolution, and finally members met with their committees for the first time. We’re all looking forward to a pizza party today to get to know each other better.
Our major fundraiser for the quarter is GlobeMed’s Rummage Sale, which has been a huge success in past years and is scheduled for November 17th. We’ve started planning it and hope for an even more successful one this year. We also look forward to working with Deepa, Parul, Neha, and Kerianne who visited the H.O.P.E. center this past summer to see what we can do to help the center and can’t wait to hear more about their amazing experience there.
After raising over $10,000 last year, we hope to raise even more this year, so anything that you can donate would be greatly appreciated, and donations can be made directly on this site. Also, on October 19th, GlobalGiving.org is matching 30% of all online donations (starting at 12:01 am EDT) with $100,000 available funds. This is the last Bonus Day of the year, so any donation that you would really help us and make a huge difference with the added funds from Global Giving. Thank you again for your continued support, and we’re looking forward to the new school year ahead.
