The Migration Club has been organizing fundraising efforts in support of the people of Ukraine. A T-shirt fundraiser will kick-off this week. You can see the T-Shirts in the attachment. The bright colors of the Ukrainian flag will hopefully raise awareness on our campus. Proceeds will go to UNICEF, an organization providing aid to children and families in Ukraine.

T-shirts will be sold for $10 and come in S,M,L, and XL. We also have a limited amount of XXL.
If you would like to preorder, please email your size and quantity to centerformigration@duq.edu

T-shirts will be sold on the 3rdfloor of the Union from Wednesday April 27 through May 13 (between 9am-1pm), or until supplies run out. If anyone would like to volunteer some time to this cause, please fill out name, email, and dates/times available in this spreadsheet.

Please share the word of the T-shirt fundraiser among your networks!
Thank you so much!
