Calling All Alumni: AIESEC Scholarship
I sent this out to some friends this morning, but wanted to invite any alumni out there in the blogsphere to join us:
Yeah, it's been a while since I've heard that in person, too.
Remember how when we were AIESECers, we were always trying to get our alumni more involved? But didn't know how?
Remember how badly we wanted to go abroad or go to an international conference? But didn't have the money?
Well, now's our chance to get together and make a difference. Alf and I have been hatching an idea to create an alumni scholarship for a motivated member to be able to attend an international conference or go abroad. He's even talked to Ali (the current LCP in Madison) to get the ball rolling on their end.
Here's what we need from you: MONEY. These will be tax-deductible donations made directly to AIESEC, allocated for a specific use: scholarship. Now that we're all a few years out, most of us are making enough money to donate 50 tax deductible dollars for a good purpose.
So, what do you say? What about bringing the impact full circle? You remember the great times you had in AIESEC and all of the valuable lessons you learned. Isn't it time to pass it on and ensure that someone else has the same opportunity?
If you're in, just shoot me an e-mail message with how much you're willing to add to 'the pot'. It doesn't have to be $50, it can be anything. Don't pull out the checkbook yet, just let us know how much you're in for.
As for me, count me in for $100.
Come on, afterall,
"We are family..."
