Darfur Events At SFU

Dear members and supporters,

If you can help put up posters, sell tix and spread the word it will be appreciated. If anyone is willing to paint a banner for the Convo mall that will be cool too.

We need volunteers to help at the CSFD table on the 28-29, and the social on the 30th at the door. Please help, we have now collected $14,000 for Oxfam's work in Darfur, but we can do better. We must be visible with all the confusion some campus on groups are causing regarding the severity of the Darfur situation. See event details below and e-mail back if you can help;
