CNA Student Emergency Fund to the rescue

November 21 – Ask any student and they will tell you they are stressed out on a daily basis just trying to succeed – throw in an emergency, and they may be forced to abandon their studies and dreams. CNA’s Student Emergency Fund aims to avoid that possibility by giving help when needed to get them through a major hurdle. The fund has existed since 2015, but this year was the first time CNA partnered with Giving Tuesday – known as the global day of giving ­– on Tuesday, Nov. 28 to raise awareness and money for the cause. Giving Tuesday is also known as the opening day of the giving season and traditionally follows Black Friday. It is an opportunity for charities, companies and individuals to rally for their favourite causes. Read more at https://goo.gl/YAT4Sz
