Art Auction Updates
by Alexander Martin on Mar 19, 2015 - 4:37 PM EDT

Hey EWBers!

Our annual art auction is happening in ONE WEEK! This is one of our biggest fundraisers and the Art Auction team has put in a lot of effort to put it together.

Earlier this year, we talked about the importance of supporting our Junior Fellow; working to make Art Auction a success is a huge part of doing so.

We need YOU to promote this event.

1) Invite profs in person and follow up in class!
2) Invite people you know in the community!
3) Reach out to different faculties!
4) Retweet our tweets on twitter!
5) Share the website link on social media!

Here is a sample email that you could customize and send to people:

Remember to check the document below BEFORE you send your emails to see who has been contacted and fill it out AFTER you contact your profs!

If we all can manage to bring 2 people, we will have an awesome turnout!

Tickets are $60 but include a $25 tax receipt! Student tickets are $40
so if you would like food purchase a ticket as well.

We have a really exciting guest speaker coming - Levi Goertz from Voto - and we want a full crowd to hear him speak.

Thank you all in advance,

<3 Art Auction Team

Bono thanks Canadians for foreign aid contributions
U2 frontman Bono has arrived in Ottawa for meetings with Stephen Harper, as well as the prime minister's Liberal and NDP rivals. Jun 16, 2015 - 3:45 AM EDT

uwoewb EWB is concerned about the information presented in today's article from the Ottawa Citizen and what this means for Canada's role in the post-2015 development agenda. The decline in the Government of Canada's contribution to ODA points to a troubling trend. This, despite 2015 polling data that shows the majority of Canadians not only believe it's important to improve health, education and economic opportunity for the world's poorest people, but that doing so is our moral obligation as Canadians. EWB would like to see Canada reverse this trend and increase our investment in global poverty reduction with an eye towards the post-2015 Sustainable Development Goals.
