It’s Global Outreach Week!

And we say that with an exclamation since we did not know that it was happening. Silly Cloggers, with all our blah-ging we’ve missed out on a fairly big, ASUC sponsored university-wide event [1].

Besides raising awareness for global causes, it’s also intended to “raise money for charities that send books to Tanzanian schools, help Haiti deal with the aftermath of January’s devastating quake, and buy malaria nets for Africans, among others.” The week’s events are ongoing, but everything ties together with a Friday showing of “Hotel Rwanda” in Memorial Glade followed by a faculty panel discussion of the massacre.

More events included Sunday’s basketball tournament which raised $500 “for the NothingButNets campaign to save Africa’s children from malaria” (we love it when it’s a good cause AND a punny name) and Monday’s Eco fashion show. Tomorrow there will be another faculty panel to “show how technology — including a bike-powered maize sheller — can help fight world hunger.”

A bike-powered maize sheller? Now you’re talking. And the global outreaching concludes Saturday with the Cold War Kids concert (“co-sponsored by the Save My Oceans campaign,” natch).

Bottom line: the time is now. Get out there and globally outreach yourself [2]. The world will thank you.
