This amount was presented to the Canadian Red Cross and in turn matched by the Federal Government.

  Students from DESS and WUSC hosted a collection table, bake sales, and visited classrooms throughout campus to notify the BU community of the facts and endeavors taking place to help Haiti. A raffle and social were held at Houston’s Country Roadhouse to assist with fundraising. In addition to the DESS and WUSC efforts, the BU Biology Club held a plant sale which initiated an additional $125.
