To the UNH faculty and staff,

My name is Scott Kazar and I am the Director of the new club that came on campus this past year called Up ‘Til Dawn. This club hosts a campus wide event that brings students and faculty together to address donation letters and raise awareness for childhood cancer. All proceeds of the event go to St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital. St. Jude’s is unlike any other pediatric treatment and research facility. It costs $1.4 million a day to keep this amazing facility open and 84 cents of every dollar received, through donations, has supported the research and treatment at St. Jude’s. Not once has St. Jude’s ever turned a family away for their inability to pay. Not only do St. Jude’s cover family’s medical bills, but they also give them a place to live and food to eat.

In order to make this event bigger and better I am asking for your help. I would like for all faculty and staff to wear Jeans for St. Jude’s on the week of March 1st 2010, the week leading up to the Up ‘til Dawn event date, on March 10th 2010. We are asking for a minimum of a five dollar donation and for all participants to wear jeans that week. All you have to do is stop by the Up ‘Til Dawn table, located in Bartels Monday March 1st to Thursday March 4th and again Monday March 8th to Tuesday March 9th from 8am to 2pm then, after you donate a minimum of $5 you will receive an Up ‘Til Dawn sticker for everyday of the week, to show why you are wearing jeans and proof that you donated to this great cause. This is an amazing way to bring the campus community together and raise more money and awareness for a remarkable organization. If you are interested in helping to join this wonderful cause please email me at SKaza1@UNH.NewHaven.edu or one of my Executive Board members, Chelsea Keel, at CKeel1@UNH.NewHaven.edu and we will gladly give you all the appropriate information regarding Jeans for St. Jude’s.

Furthermore, if any of you are interested in participating in the Up ‘Til Dawn event, it will be located in the Beckerman Recreational Center, March 10th 2010 at 8:30pm.

Again, if you are interested in helping this cause please feel free to email me or my E-Board member for any additional information. Thank you for your time and I am hoping to see you March 10th at Up ‘Til Dawn or wearing Jean’s for St. Jude’s.

One night, One cause, Our campus.

Sincerely,

Scott Kazar
