Giving Feels Better than Recieving
For £1 you could buy a bottle of coke, a pretty big chocolate bar or even a mint edition Yu-Gi-Oh card. But next week SUSU RAG are asking everyone at the University of Southampton to do something different with your pound…
We want every student and staff member to have a positive impact on someone else’s life next week! And we can do this so easily if every single person raises or gives at least £1 to our three charities; Water Aid, Southampton Samaritans and Anthony Nolan.
For £3 Southampton Samaritans can help someones life by answering an email, for £100 we can open the centre for a day! £7 is the cost of the ‘spit kit’ used for taking a potential donor’s saliva sample for tissue-typing – the first stage of joining the Anthony Nolan register. Where £17 is the cost of a special box used for transporting donated stem cells from a donor to a patient for a potentially lifesaving transplant. WaterAid can use a £2 donation to install a rainwater collection system or even. £10 to build a well that reaches water far below the ground
So everyone needs good karma…think about those looming deadlines… you may now be thinking How Can I help? Luckily heres a quick list of three things you can do to help!
