Photocopiable © Oxford University Press MONEY-RAISING EVENTS Individual charities regularly organize money-raising events such as sponsored walks, marathons, and parachute jumps. Sir Bob Geldof raised millions of pounds for famine relief in Ethiopia with his Band Aid initiative, which was repeated twenty years later to help tsunami victims. TV stations run telethon evenings where members of the public can ring to make their donation or pledges. Many charities print their own greetings cards and calendars. In Britain, middle-aged ladies posed naked to raise money for research into non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma. This story was the basis of the film Calendar Girls . A SELECTION OF CHARITIES Oxfam – Famine relief Founded in Oxford, Oxfam is at the forefront of famine relief around the world. It is also dedicated to training people in new skills and sustainable development. Oxfam along with other charities is afraid of developing a mentality of dependence. It prefers to give people a hand up, rather than a hand out.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
