Hello, fam! As the semester is coming to a close and the carols are starting to roll up around the corner, we will be raising money with the holiday spirits in mind with our CPP Singing fundraiser!
From now until December 17th, we will be collecting donations for the annual UNAVSA Collective Philanthropy Project (CPP)! 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 the enrichment of their cultural heritage. Their current counter-trafficking initiative includes educating communities on human trafficking risks and prevention, reducing re-trafficking risks and working with at-risk populations. Projects of theirs include: providing shelter-based reintegration services, such as safe housing, emotional support, vocational training, job placements, legal assistance and family support, and enhance first responders' support for trafficking survivors on their return to Vietnam.
Through our GoFundMe Dare Campaign, anyone will have the opportunity to help us raise money for the Pacific Links cause! In addition to that, as we reach certain price points, you will get to hear the beautiful vocals of our talented BUVSA executive board!
— Here is a list of what you could possibly see if the donations hit a certain price point:
$20: Duet from a BUVSA duo
$40: Serenade from the boiZ of BUVSA
$60: Serenade from the gurlZ of BUVSA
