Summary of project In lieu of World AIDS Day, we did a raffle with four prizes (two GAP RED sweaters and two NYCOM AMSA t-shirts) to raise money for a small organization "YOUTH AGAINST AIDS" in Ghana. It is an organization one of our AMSA members worked with a few summers ago, that is desperately always in need of funds, supplies, etc. We raised in profit $120. We held the raffle for one week and a half and sold $1 per ticket). We sent the organization a letter and a check of $120.
