Fundraising Efforts for the Philippines

As the Philippines continues to feel the effects of Typhoon Yolanda, many groups around Ryerson have rallied together, raising funds to help those affected. This week is Filipino Awareness at Ryerson Week, giving us a full docket of awesome events, hosted by our good friends at the Filipino Canadian Association of Ryerson  (FCAR) in conjunction with various groups around campus. Check them out and have some fun:

Tickets are one for $2 or three for $5. The winners will be announced at the Talent Show on Thursday.
