Today at uni I’m meeting with a group to discuss a fundraiser for the China earthquake and Myanmar Cyclone. I have heard how some Chinese students watch the news every night and just cry. I wish everyone could / would read the news, so that they can understand the magnitude of what has happened to these people, and perhaps overcome and “compassion fatigue“.
I wish everyone would watch this video.
After watching this video, it seems ridiculous that fundraising is such a complicated process. There are restrictions preventing anyone who is not part of a registered charity collecting donations on campus, and while fundraising is our next option it takes so long to figure out the best option, the highest amount of profit, the easiest project to implement, check out applicable fundraising legislation.
I wish we would all want to help.
