Japan Crisis Relief: AppState Style

 On March 24, 2011, the students at Appalachian State University came together to support Japan relief efforts due to the recent natural disasters that hit Japan. Students at AppState donated, planted flags, wore red or white and wore badges in support. We raised over $1,500! All donations were given to the American Red Cross and the Japanese Red Cross.

And the event continues!
App State students are planning another fundraising day on April 7, 2011.
So those on campus, visit Sanford Mall, donate any amount and plant a flag to form the flag of Japan.
Together, we can help rebuild Japan.

Here's a few photos from the last fundrasier.

It's amazing that AppState can come together and help to support relief efforts in Japan...
how many organizations, local businesses or anyone have come together.
