Box-Out 2011 - "Raise Money and Awareness About Combating Local Homelessness"

This email comes from a group of students (HOPE) who are actively seeking to help with the homeless in Chapel Hill, NC. I usually don't advocate for specific groups via SBA, I thought considering the recent ongoings at the law school that some students would be interested. - SDB


Hi CEF friends!

Box Out is in high gear, and coming up soon! Join the CEF team at Box-Out, REGISTER NOW! In the meantime, main points as of now:

  1. I've attached a Box Out picture that everyone who wants to can make their profile picture on Facebook
  2. Facebook in general- we're pretty much just gonna take over.. posting links to registration, the CEF trailer (aka Jon's face everywhere), inviting friends to the event.
  3. Sign up... and forward the blurb below to all your listservs! Feel free to cut down.

Register for Box-Out 2011 (April 1-2)!

Come take part in HOPE (Homeless Outreach Poverty Eradication)'s yearly event to raise money and awareness about combating local homelessness.

How can you take part in this annual event?

  1. Form a team with your friends, hall-mates, teammates, committee members, etc...or join the HOPE team
  2. Raise at least $30 per person
  3. Come out on April 1 to sleep out in the Pit and learn about issues of poverty and how you can take action. There will be speakers, free food, tie-dye, TOMS shoes painting, team charades, live music, and a late-night dance-rave in the pit.

Why should you do this?

All proceeds of the event benefit the Community Empowerment Fund (CEF), a student-run group offering micro-loans, financial education, and assertive support to individuals who are underemployed and unemployed. By signing up, you will be supporting the work of CEF and empowering the local homeless: http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=lgZ-XSszKwk

Still not convinced?
Learn more about the event at http://www.nchopegardens.com/. Stop by the Pit on Wednesday from 11-1 every week leading up to the event (during Hunger Lunch) and talk to us about why you should partake in the BEST. NIGHT. OF. THE. YEAR.

Excited already? Register at this link: https://docs.google.com/forms/d/1eZut1Fi679JPakbl79msrtXN84aKzFLN9RxwEwfrxzw/viewform?formkey=dEhxR0lNTjZRV3EyWUpIbTNtZnZYR3c6MQ. Can't wait to see you there!
