Buy Awesome Greeting Cards to Benefit the USG General Scholarship Fund! Guest Post: Shelby Speer from CSEF

Isn’t it great to discover life’s little win-wins? My name is Shelby Speer, and I am the Graduate Student Services Coordinator in the Center for Student Engagement and Financial Resources (CSEF) at the Universities at Shady Grove (USG). I am also the advisor of the USG Graduate Student Association (GSA), as well as a graduate student myself (with University of Maryland Global Campus). I am writing this blog post today to give you a heads up about an awesome fundraiser that is currently underway.

“Cards for a Cause” allows you to purchase a box of 30-50 beautifully designed greeting cards (birthday, holidays, thank you, blanks, etc.) for only $30 per box! The best part is, over 50% of the sales go to the USG General Scholarship Fund to help support the educational goals of students in programs at USG. You can order online, or when we (the GSA) are tabling during the week of November 8. The fundraiser closes on November 12, and the cards should arrive the following week to be picked up from campus.

We are very excited about this fundraiser because it is a great opportunity to give back to our community while receiving something cool for ourselves. We hope that you will consider purchasing a box (or two!). You can learn more about the five different box options by visiting our online store.
