Genocide Awareness club sells treats to raise money

By Carrie Davidson

The Genocide Awareness and Activism Club wrote postcards and sold baked goods this past week to raise awareness and money for two causes in Africa. On Wednesday, the club had students sign postcards to raise awareness for the conflict in the Congo over minerals needed in things such as cell phones.

Friday, they held a cash-only bake sale with donated food and sold T-shirts to benefit the solar cooker project, a rape prevention effort for Darfur women who have been displaced to refugee camps in Chad.

The T-shirts and bake sale raised $650 in cash. The club also accumulated $250 in IOUs for T-shirts.
