In efforts to raise money for the devastating earthquake in Nepal, the DGS Social Studies Department will be selling t-shirts in the cafeteria during all lunch periods starting Monday, May 11 through Friday, May 15.The shirts will be sold for $10 and are offered in three colors: black, red and blue. Over half of the money made from selling the t-shirts will be donated toward the fundraising of relieving the impacted areas in Nepal. DGS will be partnering with the Lions Club International Foundation to bring as much awareness to the cause as possible. These funds will be spent on materials and goods that Nepali citizens now lack after the earthquake such as food and shelter.
The 7.8 magnitude earthquake hit Nepal on Apr. 25, which has caused destruction and loss of shelter for many. Over 7,000 people have died from this disaster, leaving thousands more hungry and homeless.
The shirt logo features the slogan “Pay atTENTion,” incorporating the Nepal flag to help raise money to purchase tents for the thousands that were left homeless from the natural disaster. The organization will also be leaving small jars at the ends of lunch lines for spare change anyone might have after purchasing lunch. There is also the option to donate online by visiting
