More Tsunami Aid Opportunities

I recieved the following e-mail from my beloved alma mater, and thought I'd pass it along and promote another worthy charity doing great work, Samaritan's Purse:

Dear Baylor Alum,

A terrible earthquake and tsunami ravaged Southeast Asia on December 26th and left a wake of destruction that disrupted lives, families, and communities. The World Health Organization estimated that around 3 to 5 million people in the affected region are without basic survival needs.People across the world have responded through the generous giving of their financial and material resources; and as such, Baylor is also organizing to help those in need.

The "Bear the Burden" campaign is an effort by the entire Baylor family to raise $50,000 by February 7. All donated funds will be given to Samaritan's Purse International Relief, which will then use the support raised for relief efforts in the worst hit areas in Asia. Please consider taking a part in the Bear the Burden campaign, and visit [baylor.edu] to donate.

You can also make checks payable to “Bear the Burden- Baylor University” and mail them to Baylor Student Government, c/o Bear the Burden, PO BOX 85555, Waco, Texas 76798.

We hope that you will join others in the Baylor family in this worthy cause and help bring desperately needed aid to the people in Southeast Asia through this campaign.Baylor Bears have always risen to the occasion to help those in need and we hope you will join us now. Through prayer and action, we can reach out to make a positive difference.


Sincerely,

Jeff Leach, Student Body President

Kristin Kan, External Vice President

Brandon Anderson, Internal Vice President

David Malone, President, Baylor Alumni Association
