Athena’s 3rd Annual Global Give Fundraiser 2018

global-give-general

And once again it’s that time of year….NAFSA is upon us! As we at Athena are preparing for the conference, we are thrilled to officially announce our 3rd Annual Global Give Fundraiser which will take place during the NAFSA conference in Philadelphia this year!

This fundraiser has been so popular among NAFSAites the past 2 years that we decided to make it a permanent part of Athena’s charitable arm, S.O.S.  Giving back is a core mission of Athena Study Abroad and through the various branches of our S.O.S. program we, and our students, have been able to join countless charitable organizations to bring about change we want to see in the world. From service-based scholarships to donations of proceeds & services, to staff service to our own community, we do all that we can to make the world a better place for everyone because we feel as global citizens, it is our duty to do so.

With the donations raised last year at NAFSA through our Second Annual Global Give Fundraiser as well as Athena’s dollar-for-dollar donation match, we were able to donate enough to the GoAbroad Foundation to result in the second GoAbroad Annual Scholarship that supports a student in the Philippines to go to school for an entire academic year! We were beyond thrilled with the support we received last year from our fellow international educators and are very excited to continue giving to this amazing charity this year.

THE GIVEAWAY!

This year, for our Global Give fundraiser, will be giving out FUN TRAVEL SLEEP MASKS for donations!  But that’s not all…we will be doing PHOTO FUN with these masks at our booth and around the conference, so tag yourself on social media with #AthenaGlobalGive to get RTs and share in the hilarious fun!

WHAT DO YOU THINK THE WORLD NEEDS MORE OF?

We found ourselves in a discussion about the current state of the world and what we all thought the world could use more of. It goes without saying that the world could use a lot more of a bunch of things, but we want to know what you think the world needs the most right now.  This year’s 4 virtues to consider are:

  • Empathy
  • Love
  • Communication or
  • Empowerment

We as international educators have a lot of thoughts on the subject, so we encourage you to stop by our booth, cast your vote, and tell us why you think the world needs more of one of these virtues the most.

STUDENTS WILL DISCUSS THE IMPORTANCE OF THE WINNING VIRTUE!

Not only do we want to have stimulating conversation with you at our NAFSA booth, but we also want to hear what students have to say about the topic! Therefore, whichever virtue receives the most votes will become a part of the scholarship essay prompt for the Athena’s Global Give Scholarship Applicants through the GoAbroad Foundation’s Scholarship Program in the Philippines! You will be able to follow along with the adventure of choosing the scholarship recipient, hearing what the recipient has to say about the top chosen virtue (as selected by the int’l ed community), and how it relates to education.  Read about last year’s scholarship recipient, Jerlyn Mae!

Follow along as Athena Study Abroad and the GoAbroad Foundation provide updates after the conference.

We look forward to seeing you at Athena’s NAFSA booth #2117!
