Hello, each year many of you contribute to the combined charitable appeal for university employees, or CCAUE.
Universities in Maine have been able to bring together two million dollars through this appeal. Once again we ask for your generosity and your support.
I give because I feel that I’m fortunate. I’ve got a great job, I love my job, I’ve got a very supportive family and live in a community that is fantastic.
And so giving is my small way of helping support the community and the world at large to make it a better place.
I give to the Bangor homeless shelter. I think it’s important, there’s a lot of people out there, good people that just need a little hand and means a lot to me.
I give to world bicycle relief because it empowers women in Africa to be able to get back and forth to their businesses in a timely manner rather than walk it.
It’s very easy. I can just log in a couple of clicks and I’m done and it makes it too easy almost but yeah it’s great.
One of the things I really like about UMaine is that there’s compassion and a caring for the community that I think is a defining characteristic of UMaine through its people and so being a part of that is something I really enjoy.
We ask that you consider making a donation today, and we thank you for your wonderful generosity.
