Carleton Clubs Updates

Hey again - this was in my Carleton inbox courtesy of the Rights and Democracy Club. Also be sure to check out other Carleton Club Activities on their events site HERE.

Anyway, from Rights and Democracy....:

Christmas jingles starting to drive you insane..............?
The following events will make you want to sing along whatever your religion....
Check em out.

1) Forget the bling and go for a donkey.
Want to put smiles on lots of faces this holiday season? Give a gift that always fits – to relatives, friends or colleagues. Purchase a donkey in their name.

Why a donkey?
A donkey can literally transform life for families in Africa. Donkeys can carry water, freeing up children so they can go to school. Donkeys help transport goods to market so that parents can earn more income to buy food and other necessities for their family.

It's easy. simply go to CHF (Formally the Canadian Hunger Foundation)'s site https://secure.jmgsolutions.ca/chf/donatenow6.asp?id=CHF and purchase a donkey.

2) Second Annual Christmas Extravanganza: Benefit for the Homeless

COSMIC JUICE / TIM's MYTH / DJ Rick "The Plant" hosted by Trevor Thompson.
