EWB Weekly Email - Mar 23
by Alexander Martin on

Hi everyone,

This weekly email is centred around Art Auction, as it is coming up this Thursday!

The final push to sell art auction tickets is upon us! Sell to your friends, family, classmates, profs--anyone you know!

For those who weren't at the Art Auction volunteer meeting last Sunday, there will be a brief meeting during tomorrow's planning meeting.

Art Auction
Thursday, March 26

Art Auction is our biggest fundraiser event of the year. It is a gala evening featuring art from local London artists as well as guest speakers. Please contact your profs, friends and family to let them know about the event and encourage them to buy a ticket! More information is on the website: http://www.ewbwesternartauction2015.com/

We will be holding our planning meeting as usual at 5:30 pm on Tuesday in SEB 2094, but there will be no Member Learning this week, due to Art Auction.

Cheers,

Alex

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.

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.
