Dear UAlbany Community:

I am writing to seek your help in an effort by our University at Albany community to assist victims of the South Asian tsunami.

As you know, many both here on campus and across the globe have already contributed support for the relief effort. The needs, however, are enormous and as a campus, we would like to provide additional support to help victims rebuild their lives and communities.

Funds raised through this special drive will be directed to the following charitable organizations:

  • American Red Cross
  • Save the Children

These organizations have been selected based on their proven track record for dealing with this region and this type of disaster. All gifts to these organizations will be designated for quake-tsunami international relief efforts, which will ensure that your donation will be used for the victims of the tsunami disaster.

There are several ways to make a contribution from now until February 11, 2005.

  1. You may send your contribution to:

    University Auxiliary Services (make checks payable to UAS)
    UAB 232
    University at Albany

  2. Or, you may make a contribution in the Campus Center Food Court retail locations.

  3. There will also be a UAlbany Tsunami Relief station at the Winter Carnival in the dining halls.

Please join in this UAlbany community effort to help the millions in South Asia who are suffering as a result of the tsunami. Your contributions will make a difference in their lives.

Thank you.

Kathryn Lowery
Vice President for Finance and Business
