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

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?
Form a team with your friends, hall-mates, teammates, committee members, etc...or join the HOPE team
Raise at least $30 per person
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
