Social Entrepreneurship Students Raise Money for Project

Join us in supporting Seton Hill University (SHU) students who have embarked on a social entrepreneurship project

Students from SHU have partnered with FilterPure, a nonprofit organization that manufactures and distributes ceramic water filters in places such as Haiti and the Dominican Republic.

In January 2014, twelve students and two faculty supervisors from SHU will travel to the Dominican Republic to make and deliver ceramic water filters to families. While there, the students will also study Spanish and Business as part of SHU's January Term.

The SHU team has a goal to raise $3,500, which will be enough to provide water filtration systems to 100 families. All the money raised through this fundraiser goes directly to the FilterPure charity to buy filters. To date, the fundraising campaign has raised $1,982, which leaves another $1,518 to be raised.

E-Magnify has a fundraising team to support this social entrepreneurship project. If you'd like to donate to this cause, please visit E-Magnify's fundraising team page here. Thank you!
