Whuddup BUVSA fam! Hope everyone has been enjoying the semester thus far! For this year's CPP campaign, we'll be takin' it to the wall… and sticking there!!! Say what??
Every year, we collectively raise donations for the annual UNAVSA Collective Philanthropy Project (CPP) in order to benefit a chosen nonprofit organization. This year’s CPP partner, Pacific Links Foundation (PALS), is a non-profit organization that seeks to support the sustainable development of Vietnamese communities and educates communities in Vietnam about human trafficking risks and prevention.
Through this semester's fundraiser for the annual CPP Campaign, not only will anyone and everyone have the opportunity to help us raise money for a good cause but you'll also have the opportunity to witness a very silly situation!
