YRo's first fundraising effort after our Ebola project was a great success! We sold and delivered over 150 candygrams across campus, totaling almost $500. The money will go towards our partnership with Global Strategies, where the money will go towards combating malnutrition and childhood HIV in refugee children.

Demand for candygrams has increased since last year, and so the entire team spent several hours buying, assembling, and delivering candygrams to our recipients. Highlights include sprinting to CT Hall and printing $20 worth of paper tags, as well as buying another $50 worth of candy from Walgreens at 9 PM. 

Special thanks to JTimberlake, Kdot, and Daft Punk for making prime candygram-making music.

YRo teamed up with several other Yale Undergraduate Organizations to fundraise in the effort to fight Ebola. Numerous hours were spent tabling on Cross Campus (you may have seen us!), helping sell Woad's tickets, and assembling/delivering candygrams. We raised over $1,500 for various organizations spearheading the fight against Ebola, i.e. Doctors Without Borders, Partners in Health, and Save the Children. Please donate for the fight against Ebola today!
