Campaign Progress:

Total Pledges as of November 19 - $47,005
Total Number of Donors as of November 19 - 97

A month has past since pledge envelopes were distributed to 1700 staff and faculty at the Schulich School of Medicine & Dentistry and Robarts Research Institute and we are now almost half way to meeting our two goals - $95,000 and receiving pledges from 170 (10%) individuals. The one sure way to increase in the funds available to the United Way is to expand the base of donors. We can all make a difference - please return your pledge envelope today!

Posters charting our campaign results are displayed in the Medical Sciences and Dental Sciences Buildings and at Robarts. They will be updated on a weekly basis so be sure to watch our campaign's progress!

Moustache Olympics:
Join in the fun at Robarts on Monday December 1st when the Atrium will be invaded by "costume wearing, moustache bearing, money-raising folk".
It is not too late to participate! Visit the website at http://www.moustacheolympics.com for more information, pictures and to pledge those "moustache bearing, money-raising folk"!
