SALT End of the Year Survey

Hey SALT!

Thank you all for you service and enthusiasm at the C4C this morning. The event would not have been possible without your help, and your energy despite the cold and rainy weather made a world of difference! I hope you all enjoyed the event as much as I did.

As we are all well aware, the end of the year is fast approaching, and so naturally our time together as this year of SALT is coming to a close. This calls for reflection on the year, and SALT would greatly appreciate if you would take a few minutes in the next couple days to fill out this survey.

Our last Tuesday night meeting is this week at 9:30, and we will reflect on our time together this year, so this form might act as a start to your reflection on the year.

Again, thank you for all you have done both today and throughout the year, and I look forward to Tuesday night!

In peace,
Shannon

Please take 5-10 minutes to reflect on your experience this past year as a member in SALT.

I've invited you to fill out the form SALT End of the Year Survey. To fill it out, visit:

Repost SALT's Last Facebook/Instagram Post

Hey SALTers, 

Please go and repost or share the last post made by SALT on Facebook and Instagram. While you're at it, repost one of the posts about C4C too. We want to try and raise as much as we can in the next 24 hours!

Have a great day!
Katie

Letter for Families

Hey SALTers!

Hope you're getting excited for C4C! It's gonna be a blast, rain or shine. 

But, before Saturday gets here, we still have some fundraising to do. Please send the letter attached to this email to your families. You can send it in an email, I just thought it might be easier to read as an attachment. We still need your help to get to $30,000!

See you on Saturday, 
Katie

Re: Salty minutes for SALT :)

SALTers,

Thanks for your help tonight!! Please read the minutes from tonight! They contain the majority of the C4C details you need to know for the week! 

Also, for a more current count of the number of people impacted in Ecuador (my apologies)...over 650 people have died, around 16,600 are injured, and roughly 58 people are missing. Keep Ecuador in your prayers and attend the event on Thursday if you are interested in how you can help

Enjoy the rest of your night, and great job packing tonight!

Only Two Meetings Left!

Hello SALTers!

I hope you have enjoyed the start to the last full week of classes! I still can't believe we are this close to the end of the semester. The year is not over yet, though, and the C4C is this Saturday! We will meet tonight for our second to last Tuesday night meeting at 9:30pm in the Helge Center. Tonight will involve further conversation about the opportunity we had with the Syrian family last week, some social media pushes, as well as our packet packing party for the C4C!

Have a great day, and see you tonight!

In peace,
Shannon

C4C Volunteer Sign Up Sheet

Hello Satlers!

I hope this message finds you well and that you are able to enjoy this amazing spring weather. Last night I made an announcement about volunteering for C4C, but wanted to send out the sign up sheet for those who were not able to join us. Please sign up to help on Saturday, April; 30th that is where we need the most help! I will be sending out another email next week about the specifics on Race Day. 

Thank you for all the work and effort you have put into The Hope Underground. And if you were lacking any motivation or connection to the campaign, I hope you felt rejuvenated and energized by the stories of the Hadid family. Take time this week to reflect and to talk with others about the experiences you heard. Our WRC is an incredible way to help people who are hurting, people who are not strangers, but are indeed our neighbors. 

If you have any questions about C4C, shoot me or chris.barnes@valpo.edu an email. Be sure to spread the word about the WRC, C4C, and the opportunity people have to help provided hope and relief to those in Syria through The Hope Underground.

Peace,

Cogan Blackmon
