Please help sponsor a child

My name is Brittany Glenn and I have spent the last couple of months volunteering in Tanzania. Since being here a couple of volunteers and I noticed the huge problem Tanzania has with street children. On assessing the problem, we worked hard and found a house for the kids and have been providing them with food, shelter, clothing and schooling. We hope to provide even more in the future as this program grows. Please read the below information and let me know if you are interested in donating, sponsoring a child or even coming to Tanzania and volunteering. Anything will help and be greatly appreciated! Thank you!

People around the world have shown great interest in the issue of street children in Tanzania. It is possible to use this support to provide these children with shelter, food, education, vocational training and an overall change of lifestyle. By addressing the issue of street children in Tanzania now, we can help these children to work towards a brighter future. Journey Nyumbani Street Children’s Centre was created to bring these changes to the community of Moshi, Tanzania.We are currently housing 14 children between the ages of 12 and 18 in our centre located in Shantytown, Kilimanjaro. The children were found in Moshi and its surrounding villages and have been living on the streets for up to 7 years. Some of these children may have an abusive family history, but most often the cause for homelessness is lack of means for financial support. Our short-term goals include mainly keeping the children safe and providing them with their basic needs.The long-term goals of Journey Nyumbani are to provide the chidlren with a proper education. We are currently providing home-schooling in the form of preparatory courses for their desired schools in January 2010. In addition, Journey Nyumbani hopes to involve the children in the appropriate vocational training to encourage an eventual self-sustaining financial situation. Art and music lessons are also provided to allow for a creative outlet as well as a potential source of income. Journey Nyumbani is a newly developed organization in need of financial help from abroad. If you are interested in making a contribution, it would be greatly appreciated.

It costs $20/month to feed one child. It costs $10/month to provide housing for one child. Would anyone like to be a sponsor?? The school term in Tanzania begins in January. We are trying to raise $100 for each child by the end of December 2009. Please let us know if you are interested in making a donation!
Please let me know if you have any questions bglenn85@gmail.com

Thank you so much.

Sincerely,
Brittany N Glenn
Please spread the word to anyone you know!

Founder's Day help

Hello all fellow Alums!

We are getting geared up for the Founder's Brunch on March 7th at Market Street Grill in Cottonwood at 11am that day. However, we are in need of some help.

I am looking for people/companies to sponsor the day. With this sponsorship, we would take anything you would be willing to give, money or otherwise, for the day of the event. With that, your logo will be printed on all the stationary the day of, you are welcome to put something on the tables from your company, either little favors or otherwise the day of, and we will allow you to set up a table a the event promoting your company.

Any additional money we make on the day will be donated to the scholarship program being started for our local chapter, Beta Gamma at the University of Utah. These girls need our help to make it through these tough times and complete their education. It is our duty to support the fraternity the same way it has supported us for many years.

I know the economy is tough right now, but this is a really inexpensive way to get your name and company out to fellow DG's. I know if I have a choice, I do my business with a DG before someone else and I hope you do too! Also, keep in mind that whatever you donate is tax deductible as DG is a non profit organization and the additional monies will go to a scholarship fund.

If you are interested in participating in any way shape or form, please contact me at 801.259.8598 or e-mail me at Jacque@RiehlEvents.com. I look forward to hearing from all of you and seeing you on March 7th to honor our fraternity and our founders.

Collumnae speaker event


Dear Alumnae:

We would like to invite you to the Delta Gamma house for a very special collumnae (collegiate and alumnae) event. We are honored to be hosting a speaking event with Maria Murnane. Maria is a 1991 alum from UC Berkeley (Gamma) who recently published a romantic comedy novel. It is entitled "Perfect on Paper," and it's about a single woman in San Francisco whose life is hardly perfect. Maria describes the target audience as any woman who has ever had a really bad date or realized halfway through the work day that her skirt is on backwards. I am sure we all fall into this category.

This engagement will be held on February 2nd from 5:30-6:45 @ the Delta Gamma house on 1373 E. 100 S. We have also been invited to have dinner with the collegiates beforehand @ 5:30. This is such an excellent opportunity to support a fellow Delta Gamma and to get to spend time with our fabulous collegiates. If you have any questions please contact me. My information is below. I hope to see you all there.

ITB,
