Burundi Friends International Fundraising Campaign Ends June 30
As many of you know, in 2007, a mustard seed was planted at the Newman Center at UCSD called, Burundi Friends International (BFI). That seed has grown into a magnificent tree serving youth, women and men all across Burundi. BFI now serves more students than the student population of UCSD! BFI is asking for financial support at this time due to a dollar to dollar match of up to $125,000. This match ends June 30. Help them make their goal by donating online at Volunteers are also needed!
