$10,000 Goal for Brock Typhoon Relief

Typhoon Haiyan is the second deadliest Philippine typhoon on record, killing at least 4000 people. Millions of people in the affected regions need immediate assistance with providing drinking water, food, emergency shelters, and medicines.

Brock University, Student Life and Community Experience, Athletics Department, Sport Management and the Brock G.R.O.E. has partnered with Humanitarian Coalition to lend a hand to the victims of Typhoon Haiyan in the Philippines.

As a further initiative to encourage support, the Canadian Government will match all donations received by December 8th 2013.

You can help Brock reach their goal of raising $10,000 for the government to match by supporting in a few different ways:

1. Join the Lend a Hand Campaign. This campaign will run from November 25th to December 3rd 2013 and encourages students, staff and faculty to raise awareness through social media. Change your profile picture to the poster, and hashtag #LendAHand on all of your social media platforms to show your support.

2. Share and like photos on the Lend A Hand Facebook page. Volunteer students are going to be located throughout the hallways of Brock University engaging with students, staff and faculty to take photos and increase the coverage of the #LendAHand. Donors and supporters will be invited to take a picture with the poster of the campaign and post it on their social media profiles.

3. Or donate directly online at www.tinyurl/BrocksupportsPhilippines or in person at the SLIC office (MCA 204)
