We are overwhelmed. SO overwhelmed with the amount of support Cummings Thrive has received for the past 8 days!
Thanks to everyone's generosity thus far, we have reached our goal of $2000!!! The money raised will allow Cummings Thrive to support veterinary students for the entire academic year! This will be an important step in establishing a resilient and compassionate community at Tufts Cummings.
...However, we are not done yet! We still have about 3 weeks left for the fundraising campaign!!
The idea for Cummings Thrive emerged after Anika and I attended a weeklong leadership and wellness training program called Veterinary Leadership Experience (VLE) over the summer. The transformative experience we had fueled our motivation for Cummings Thrive and inspired us to create the current format of the program.
Every year, Tufts Cummings has been sending 2 students and one faculty member to VLE. With that said, we would like to extend our fundraising goal to to $4000. The additional $2000 will be used to sponsor 2 students and a faulty member to attend next year’s VLE held in June of 2018. The cost to attend includes registration, flights to ID, lodging, and so on.
By Cummings Thrive contributing to the cost of sending students and faculty to VLE, we will secure a motivated group of people who will play a vital role in refining and further developing Cummings Thrive in years to come.
We cannot thank you enough for all of the support we’ve received so far. Thank you so much! And please continue to share the donation link to anyone and everyone you know to reach our new goal!
Thank you so much,
Makoto & Anika
