Update of Final Total/Future Event!

11 Feb

We are proud to announce that our final total raised was over $23,000! Thanks again to everyone who was involved.

We are planning a discussion event in early April, to keep the conversation rolling! Make sure you keep your eyes open for it!


What are you thankful for?

24 Nov

As we begin the Thanksgiving break, we’re given the unique opportunity to take rest with our loved ones and reflect on what we are thankful for.
At NU Stands with Pakistan, we are thankful for all of you – your contributions allowed us to raise nearly $20,000. Oxfam also sends their thanks.

When NU Stands with Pakistan started fundraising at Northwestern, we projected a symbolic, yet entirely attainable goal. In three weeks, we had hoped to raise 1 dollar for every NU undergraduate on campus – a total that came to $8,536. Some told us we should set our sights lower, while others thought we were underestimating ourselves. Three weeks later, we stand looking at our total, and we are both humbled and amazed by the generosity of the Northwestern community. With that, we give you this announcement:

People of every background came together to make this happen. We’d like to thank the students groups for their participation, with a special thanks to A&O for donating 1 dollar from every ticket sold for the Kid Cudi & Snoop Dogg Concert!

Our thanks go out to these organizations for their commitment to our cause:

  • A&O Productions
  • South Asian Student Alliance 
  • Muslim Cultural Student Association 
  • Global Engagement Summit 
  • GlobeMed 
  • NUCHR 
  • Amnesty International
  • Dance Marathon
  • NU Wildside 
  • International Students Association 
  • College Democrats 
  • Residential College Board 
  • Residential Hall Association 
  • Multi-Ethnic Intervarsity 
  • Northwestern University Panhellenic Association 
  • Asian American Intervarsity  
  • Vertigo 
  • Coalition of Colors 
  • Kellogg Students Association 
  • North by Northwestern  
  • The Daily Northwestern 

However – the tragedy has not ended. Though we may have done our part financially, it is important for us to continue the conversation that we started. What role do Northwestern students play in the global community? When tragedy strikes, are we the first to respond? These are questions we must continually push ourselves on.

Thank you Northwestern.

NU Stands with Pakistan, and rocks with Kid Cudi and Snoop Dogg!

17 Oct

Friday night, two of Hip-hops biggest acts, Snoop Dogg and Kid Cudi, were at Northwestern performing for a huge crowd of over 5000! What’s better? One dollar of every ticket sold for this concert was donated to NU Stands with Pakistan. The Northwestern community has come together in a way like none other behind NU Stands with Pakistan. From the initial publicity online, through flyers, and the Rock, to over 300 t-shirts being sold, the Northwestern student body has spoken – we will not lag in response to global disasters. We will be the first reactors. 

Unfortunately, money is still being counted, so we are still unable to provide a final number – too many contributions to count is not a bad thing! Expect a full update soon.

Kellogg Stands with Pakistan

14 Oct

Our team has successfully launched PR and operations in Kellogg School of Management! We were overwhelmed by the initial response by students and faculty of Kellogg. From volunteering their time to man our table, to hounding their friends to donate, to simply donating generously, the Kellogg community has immediately made their mark and continued the momentum of NU Stands with Pakistan!

Collections in Kellogg School of Management start tomorrow!

13 Oct

NU Stands with Pakistan is fired up and pumped to launch collections in Kellogg School of Management! Look out for us on Wednesday October 13th, Thursday October 14th, and Friday October 15th at the tables in the atrium! We’ll have jars to donate, and information on donating online. All donations from Kellogg students will be matched (up to $2000!) so please donate generously!

We would like to thank Kellogg School of Management, and the Kellogg Students Association for making this collaboration possible. Your commitment to the cause truly demonstrates how our movement has taken hold in every corner of our campus.

Preliminary Donation Total to be Announced Friday!

12 Oct

As we near the end of our relief efforts, NU Stands with Pakistan plans to report a preliminary update, with a rough estimate of how much we have raised. We are excited to make this announcement, and look forward to communicating the progress that our campus has made collectively.

Look out for this update.
