A message from the DSU

Haiti relief update

My name is Priscilla and I am the External Relations Coordinator for the Douglas Students' Union. I had initially sent an email about our match funding groups who wanted to fundraise for the relief efforts for Haiti.

I was not clear with my messaging and there has been miscommunication since. I would like to say that this was not the DSU as a whole that has made this error, it was myself. When requested I mistakenly did not send the following message:

"The DSU is committed to making every effort to raise funds for Haiti. Our primary fundraiser will be a bake sale held in the concourse on January 28. DSU will match funds collected by DSU though direct fund raising or clubs to a total maximum of $500before January 29, 2009 and requires the funds to be sent though DSU to a legitimate aid organization. DSU will also be making an up front contribution of $500 to Haiti aid."

The DSU believes in supporting the efforts put forward for this cause and are doing their best to rectify any problems because of this error.

I thank you for the moment of your time, I wanted to apologize for any inconvenience.
