You are invited to attend the “Ending Apathy” event at E. O. Smith High School today [May 8]. There is a $5 charge to attend the event, which runs from 12:30 to 9 p.m.
The theme of the event is to increase awareness of issues around the world and what each of us can do to help. Proceeds will be donated to charity.
Speakers include a former child soldier and a holocaust survivor.
It’s also about having some fun. There will be a silent auction, a coffee house, a petting zoo, workshops and talks about the issues, gong baths for relaxation and a movie.
The “Ending Apathy” event is a joint project of students and teachers, and arose from schoolwide efforts to help after the 7.0-magnitude earthquake in Haiti in January.
Half of the proceeds will be donated to Roots of Development and half to the Adam Rivard Environmental Organization.
Roots of Development is an organization that supports the Haitian village of La Gonave. The Adam Rivard Environmental Organization focuses on bringing purified water to developing countries.
