This Week: LTN Kickoff Winners, Buy SSA Stuffs, Internship & Volunteer Opportunity
I hope everyone is having a good school year so far because it is close to the end. This year is especially exciting for me because in a couple of months I finally get to graduate! Being part of a SSA affiliated group on my campus has definitely been a highlight of my college years. I know the same is true for you guys as well.
We still have a few groups with outstanding affiliation renewals. Make sure you guys get those in!
Light the Night Kickoff Winners!Congratulations are in order for our affiliate group Alabama Atheists and Agnostics (AAA) for raising over twice the amount of the national SSA in the Light the Night Kickoff Challenge! AAA raised $685 bucks for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society thus far - much higher than any other group. We promised a pizza party but AAA had an even better idea: catering for a Ba-by-Q (or BABY-Q) Misconception Bash to kick off their fall semester. Congratulations on winning the Kickoff Celebration Alabama Atheists and Agnostics!
Buy SSA StuffsWe've added new items for sale at our buy supplies page. Our first new item is the SSA stamp which costs $10 bucks each. Use them to stamp forms, hands or other objects with relatively flat surfaces. We used these babies during Reason Rally and due to the demand we ordered some to sell to you at a huge discount. We also have stretchy baby blue gel wristbands which you can buy. Every $3 gets you 10 fashionable bands. You can wear them anywhere and show off your SSA pride!
Buy these items today! By the way, Don't forget - you can get still standard tabling supplies for free at www.secularstudents.org/tablingsupplies.
