Happy New Year! In this year of our Centennial Anniversary, I trust that you are as excited as I am as we move forward in Omega!
In keeping with our Cardinal Principle of scholarship, I am asking for your assistance. The United Negro College Fund has partnered with the National Pan-Hellenic Council to ensure that seniors in UNCF member colleges are able to graduate on time with the Campaign for Emergency Student Aid (CESA) which will raise $250,000 to support recession-impacted graduating seniors who need to pay off balances for tuition, books and room and board before they can receive their diplomas.
Through the Text to Donate campaign, I am encouraging each Brother, along with their friends and family to donate $10 to help reach this goal by texting UNCF OPP to 50555. You are allowed to donate up to $30 per cell phone monthly billing cycle. This campaign runs from January 1, 2011 through February 28, 2011. You may also visit www.UNCF.org and click on the Campaign for Emergency Student Aid icon to support this cause. I certainly will do my part!
I have been inspired by our past collective efforts to help our your and am encouraged that this campaign will surpass them all.
Brother Dr. Andrew A. Ray
