GlobeMed Ugly Sweater Sale: A Review

Fundraisers, GlobeMed
On November 17-20 the GlobeMed Campaigns Team put on the annual Sweater Sale. Here is Jason Chen, Co-President of Campaigns, on the fundraiser in review. I believe that the annual fall ugly sweater sale is consistently our most successful fundraiser. We large amount of traffic we get brings in a lot of money as well as spreads awareness about GlobeMed and what we do. The sweater sale this year was over the course of four days in the Norris student center. We put a lot of time into planning the sweater sale. We made many trips to local stores throughout the Chicagoland area to find as many ugly sweaters as possible. All of the promotion materials were constructed by the amazing Communications Team to help spread the word throughout campus…

“Helping Students Who Give”

Community Building, Fundraisers, GlobeMed
By Amanda Blazek NSH Impact Week here at Northwestern kicked off Sunday night, with the seven opposing teams joining for a dinner of Indian food and team rallying before the week of rivalry ahead. GlobeMed had a strong turnout and (I would say) the loudest cheering section. Impact Week stretches from May 4th to May 10th and is hosted by Northwestern Student Holdings – an entrepreneurial student group that launches and finances on-campus businesses. For NSH Impact week, each NSH business has been paired with an on-campus philanthropy to raise money and awareness for each club and cause. GlobeMed has six strong competitors this week including Peer Health Exchange, Best Buddies, Tufaan, NCDC, Applause for a Cause and Mimo. Each team made a video representing their organization and the work it does. As with…

The life of a shirt

Fundraisers, GlobeMed, H.O.P.E. Center
Our second annual Global Marketplace is coming up in less than a week on Tuesday, October 19. This is going to be an amazing event, not only because it's a great opportunity for some low-budget shopping while raising money for the H.O.P.E. Centre, but also because the way clothes are bought, made, and disposed of is an important public health issue. It is important to reassess our relationship with the goods we purchase. Compassionate, informed consumerism can turn each purchase you make into an act of political expression. Follow the presentation to learn more about the kinds of questions you should be asking as you go through the life of a shirt.--KATIE SMILEY

Kathleen’s updates from the H.O.P.E. Center

Fundraisers, GlobeMed, GROW Trip, H.O.P.E. Center, Ho, Ghana
The H.O.P.E. Center is aammaaazzzziiinnnggg, and yes, it does deserve all of those letters. It's so great to see the H.O.P.E. Center in person -- not just in pictures -- and just to see where all of our hardwork and money goes! Keep it up everyone! The staff is wonderful -- all so nice and welcoming. Sister Mary just laughs at us all of the time. I think she thinks our accents are funny. Margaret is literally amazing and definitely one of the coolest people I've ever met. I made the mistake of telling her that I am afraid of spiders so she hasn't let me live that down at all and mentions it every time she sees me... greatttt... We had a lizard crawling all over our walls and…
