Kick it at the Cow--November 16th, 2011
A recent Carleton graduate took a position working in Mali for Project Muso: Yiramadjo, an organization that strives to "solve the root causes of health crises. Our model integrates health care delivery, community organizing, microenterprise, and education to stop cycles of poverty and disease, and create cycles of health and well being in their place."
She wrote to our chapter saying that Project Muso was in desperate need of funding. Thankfully, we had the ability to designate Project Muso as this year's recipient. For more information on our recipient, visit http://www.projectmuso.org/.
The Contented Cow will host Kick it at the Cow, Round II: Project Muso in Northfield! The evening of live music performances from both St. Olaf and Carleton is on November 16th from 9pm to 1am. They will be donating 25% of the proceeds during this time.
Kick it at the Cow--March 9th, 2011
For the 2010-2011 academic year AMSA decided to donate our fundraising efforts to Soccer4Haiti (http://soccer4haiti.org/), a Massachusetts-based group which raises money to send soccer balls to Haiti. The organization is run by 11 middle and elementary school students with the assistance of Dr. Christian Arbelaez. One soccer ball provides 22 kids with an opportunity to be kids and play, particularly when they may be facing difficulties in other areas of life.
To raise money for this program, AMSA collaborated with the Contented Cow in Northfield, MN (http://contentedcow.com/) to host Kick It at the Cow, a concert featuring student bands from Carleton and St. Olaf. The bands included a cappella groups, cover bands, accoutsic ensembles, a chinese instrument band and many other student groups The event was a great success, raising almost $1,000 for Haiti, which translates to 193 soccer balls, ninety-three over our original goal.
