Summary of our Spring 2006 Semester:
Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Pace University's UNICEF C.H.I.L.D Project, under the Pforzheimer Honors College, in Pleasantville has been able to raise $855.00 this past spring 2006 semester for the US Fund for UNICEF, all together raising $1,604.48 this academic year. Through bake sales, a hunger banquet, the distribution of Trick or Treat boxes, and numerous donations, this organization has been able to make a difference its first year in existence.
Just think that with the money raised, three cents can protect and boost one child's immune system and prevent blindness for a year with Vitamin A capsules, $1.00 can immunize one child against polio for life, and $2.50 can provide a child with basic school supplies, including notebooks, pencils, rulers, erasers, and scissors.
Our two big events for the spring 2006 semester were presentations from the United Nations Millennium Project and Solar Cookers International. Through a hunger banquet, a representative from the United Nations spoke about the UN’s Millennium goals and the need for ending world hunger. Pace students, faculty, and staff were separated for the presentation based on low/middle/high income, and dinned on food based on this income. We were able to raise $715 for the US fund for UNICEF through this one event.
Our last event of the semester was a presentation by Solar Cookers International, which encouraged solar cooking as a sustainable, safe, convenient, dependable, and economical way to cook in sun-rich parts of the world. Over 110 Pace students, faculty, and staff attended this event!
