Well-baby Care Vaccination Program in rural Haiti

by GlobeMed at Truman State
Vetted

Truman’s GlobeMed chapter has launched a number of campaigns this semester and is planning many more throughout the spring. Thus far, we’ve hosted two benefit dinners—one in January and the other in February—and a game night. In addition, our small business coordinators conduct weekly on-campus sales of edible items as far ranging as chocolate chip pancakes and fried Oreos. Our new members are also in the process of planning their spring campaign.

Thanks to the devoted efforts of our members, GlobeMed has raised over $4,200 so far. We’ve set a goal of raising an additional $2,000 throughout the remainder of the semester via such campaigns as the Haitian Celebration and Global Health Action Week. Several of our campaigns this year involve collaborating with other Truman State University organizations. For example, one of our campaigns involves an obstacle course created via a partnership with Truman’s ROTC. Similarly, “GlobeSlam” will consist of a slam poetry presentation featuring poets from TruSlam, Truman’s slam poetry organization, and other "freelance" verbal artists. By creating these interdisciplinary opportunities, GlobeMed hopes to reach a greater audience at Truman and better inform our student body about Maison de Naissance.

Finally, GlobeMed is excited to announce that on April 17, TED Talk speaker Dr. Francis de los Reyes is coming to Truman to discuss his work in improving sanitation around the world. We also hope to recruit Truman faculty members for our weekly global health university sessions at general body meetings.

As always, we want to thank all of those who have graciously donated their time, talents, or resources to GlobeMed. Your kind support makes it possible for us to make a difference in the realm of global health equity, specifically involving Maison de Naissance and more broadly in terms of educating the public about this critical issue.

This semester, Truman’s chapter of GlobeMed launched multiple successful fundraising campaigns, including a game night, bar crawl, Oktoberfest bake sale, and global giving campaign. For their part, the new members conducted a “chicken bowl” sale (chicken bowls being a popular menu item in the Truman campus cafeterias). Finally, on December 6, GlobeMed will host a benefit dinner and art auction. Finally, GROW team applications have been distributed in preparation for a trip next year.

These efforts — in addition to small business sales around campus — have raised over $1,500, all of which goes directly to Maison de Naissance, ensuring that the birthing clinic can continue to aid those in need. As always, we would like to extend our deepest thanks to those who have donated their time, talent, or money to TSU’s chapter of GlobeMed. Maison de Naissance provides vital services for the people of Haiti. Your continued support plays a crucial role in facilitating this care, so sincerest thanks to everyone for your generous contributions. Please keep Maison de Naissance in mind this holiday season.

This semester we had an excellent turn out for TSU Globemed fundraisng campaigns.  We put together an authentic Haitian Cuisine selling bowls of rice and beans in front of student union for our "Haitian Celebration", held our "Global Getdown" dance party at Wrong Daddy's Bar, and sold breakfast in the Magruder Hall for our week long "Breakfast Club" event. This along with some other smaller fundraisers and spontaneous donations helped make this a great semester for the our organization. Thanks for all the help we were able to provide nearly six thousand dollars to our partner Maison de Naissance in Haiti.

Hello donors!  The spring semester has come to a close and we have been busy.  Throughout the semester, we have been making an extra effort to raise awareness for our mission in addition to our usual fundraising activities.  We had a total of five campaigns this semester: a trivia night, World Day of Social Justice, Global Health Awareness Week, a waffle breakfast, and our Global Getdown Celebration.  We're bringing the semester to a close with our GROW team mbers getting ready to go visit Maison de Naissance.

All of our campaign teams worked very hard to do their part raising money throughout the semester, but truly our biggest contributors are you, our donors.  Without your continued generosity our mission would be impossible, and we can't thank you enough.  This semester has been extremely rewarding for the members of the TSU GlobeMed chapter, and we can only hope that it has been just as awarding for our donors.

GlobeMed love!

            We’re over halfway there! Thanks to the generosity of our donors, we’ve already been able to exceed our expectations, and have raised $5,600 of our $10,000 yearly goal in our first semester alone--and we’re hoping to raise an even greater amount during our second semester. Our GlobeMed members are currently busy at work planning fundraisers that we hope will provide Haiti's Maison de Naissance birthing clinic with the needed funds to continue their mission.

            As usual, we have several fundraising campaigns that we will but putting on throughout this semester. Our members will be working to put on a trivia night, a Haitian Celebration event, a breakfast sale, our Global Get Down event, and several small business campaigns. As always, all funds raised by these events will be donated directly to Maison de Naissance. In addition to our fundraising efforts, we also believe that promoting awareness is extremely important to our mission, which is why this semester we will be putting on two awareness events: Global Health Action Week, and World Day of Social Justice. We hope that these events will help to raise awareness and concern for global health issues across campus. Additionally, we will once again be sending a group of our GlobeMed members to Maison de Naissance this summer in order to help strengthen the partnership between Maison de Naissance and GlobeMed's Truman chapter.

            Given that your support is so incredibly important to us, we’d like to take this opportunity to ask you, our donors, how you think we could work together with you to draw wider support for the cause. It can’t be overstated how much of an impact that you have on the lives of the mothers who rely on Maison de Naissance, and we can’t thank you enough for your continued generosity.

            GlobeMed Love
