10:10 a.m., May 5, 2014--Students for Haiti is gearing up for its second annual “Where’s Waldo” philanthropic event, which will raise funds to support a mobile health clinic in the Caribbean nation.

From 11 a.m.-5 p.m. daily during the week of May 12-16, Greek life and student organizations alike are challenged with finding a representative from Students for Haiti around campus. 

Events Stories

Oct. 20: Foltyn health sciences seminar

Amy Luke, professor at Loyola University Chicago, will deliver the second annual Foltyn Family Health Sciences Seminar at noon, Monday, Oct. 20, in the Health Sciences Complex Atrium at the University of Delaware's STAR Campus.

Oct. 21: 'Plastic Paradise' screening

A documentary on plastic waste in the Great Pacific Garbage Patch will be screened on Oct. 21 as a prelude to Campus Sustainability Day.

The representative will be dressed like Waldo from the Where’s Waldo children’s books. Clues about their location will be tweeted out on the Students for Haiti Twitter page. Students can follow this page @StUDentforHaiti and by following the hashtags #waldoweek and #whereswaldo. 

Those who choose to participate are required to donate a $1 minimum and will in turn receive one volunteer or service hour for their participation. Last year the event raised over $600, all of which went straight to an organization in Haiti known as Little Footprints, Big Steps.

Little Footprints, Big Steps helps reunite orphans with their families, and aids the families with everyday essentials (food, shelter, etc.). 

“Where’s Waldo” is only made possible through the open minds and enthusiasm of students at UD, a representative of the event said, adding that this year Students for Haiti hopes to raise even more money to fund its current project; a mobile health clinic on the ground in Haiti.
