Gram Gets Involved: What Is Our Cause?

Gramercy and MADRE Team Up!

Welcome back ladies! Hope you've all had a great summer and are gearing up for the start of a new year. I know we are, and this time with a brand new cause; working with MADRE, a women's rights initiative.

Lovely ladies in MADRE's Farming for the Future initiative. Also, chickens.

I know, I know-- it's your busiest/thesis/senior year and you've got three jobs/an internship/all nighters scheduled for every day of the week. But what if helping out this semester was super easy, even with the year being all kinds of art-school crazy?

We're all women who are lucky enough to be going to art school in one of the greatest cities in the world, but there are so many women who aren't as fortunate as us. That's where MADRE comes in; they help women all over the planet, from Peru to Brazil, Africa to Afghanistan, who are in need of just about everything, clean water, school supplies, rape kits and medical attention just some of the few things that this organization provides. You can check out more about their cause on their website.

This semester we're teaming up with MADRE to help out women in need all over the world. Throughout the next few months we'll be hosting fun events like cupcake decorating, a dollar-for-dinner night and even an art exhibition that you can submit to and sell your work in! Not to mention donation bins and cans on every floor for any loose stuff or change you might have laying around. Yep, it's as easy as showing up to eat unhealthy food or dropping some nickels in a can.

So get involved this year! Help out fellow women in need by partnering up with Gram and MADRE and stay tuned for the information on the fun events we have planned in their honor!
