The designated agencies are: CARE Canada, Oxfam Canada and the UN World Food Programme. “Our goal” says Rosalie Hanlon, Campaign Co-Chair, “is to raise $1 million in support of these agencies dedicated to reconstruction and development in the tsunami-affected regions.

Members include the Canadian Alliance of Student Association, Canadian Federation of Engineering Students, Meal Exchange and The Student Volunteer Program.
