Do you want to donate? So do we.
So why not donate for a good cause together with us. METKA is organising a Donation Fest in the Myllypuro campus on May 13th from 3 pm to 6 pm. Come donate your hair, goods or money to charity and learn more about the associations.
First, Adel, Janne, and Aaro were supposed to just donate their hair. Then the situation escalated and now we are inviting all students and staff members to donate. You can for example donate just a few cm of hair (as little as 5 cm). In addition to making wigs with the donated hair, it will be used to fix the oil spills in Australia.
We will also give out an event overall patch to the people who donate (this will be done after the event). These patches are also going to be sold and the profit will be donated to charity.
