A Trip Home For Awa
$10,000 of $10,000 goal
Raised by 550 people in 27 months
Awa is the treasure of Muhlenberg College. Her positive energy, infectious smile, and genuine kindness brightens the day of hundreds of students every day. She has an unbelivable talent of remembering names and making everyone feel like family. Awa has given so much to the students at this campus, its time we give back something to her to show our appreciation. Awa has said that each year she saves up for a trip back to her home, Senegal, with her family. The costs of flights, hotels, and general travel expenses are extremely high. The goal of this page is to raise money for her to cover this trip and make it the most memorable one yet. If Awa has ever made your day better, please give any amount to help this great cause and/or share this page! Sponsors of this campaign include the Alpha Tau Omega fraternity, but we welcome any interested groups to come on board. Thank you! Please share your thoughts and stories with Awa in the comments.+ Read More
Hi Everyone! I am so happy to announce that with the support of 550 people, we have raised 10k and Awa will be able to visit her family in Senegal with the trip of a lifetime. Unbelievable. I invite all of you to be there when we tell Awa about the gift and the fundraiser! Tomorrow, Thursday, February 2nd, Awa will be taken by her supervisor after her shift at 3:40pm to the Event Space in Seegers Union. There, we will tell her about the gift and thank her for being a great person. After that Awa will be able to deposit the funds into her account directly from gofundme. Everyone is welcome! If you cannot make it, we will video tape and post on here. I am also going to print out every comment that was said on this page in the last week and give that to her as well. Hopefully see you then!
Hi everyone! Thank you so much for all your love and support that has poured into this campaign over the last day. Each donation, comment, and share has contributed to giving Awa the most amazing gift. For all Muhlenberg students, tonight Residential Services has generously promoted Bowling Night at Haja Rose Bowl in Awa's honor. It is a $6 cover at the door for bowling all night under the black lights, including transportation to and from, and shoe rental. Buses will start running from the CA at 10 pm and stop at 11 pm. A portion of all the proceeds will go to help reach our goal and send Awa and her family on the trip of a life time. See you all there!!
