Eve Carson Memorial Fund Donations -- In the Brickyard this Tuesday

submitted by TGD on Sunday, March 16 at 9:17 PM

The Student Senate recently passed a resolution to raise at least $1,000.00+ to donate to the Eve Carson Memorial Fund, named after the former UNC Student Body President. Eve was an amazing person and we want to show UNC and Eve's family that we are thinking of them during this difficult time.

Student Government will be accepting donations for this cause in the Brickyard on Tuesday afternoon. *** You can donate cash or checks made out to UNC-Chapel Hill with "Eve Carson Memorial Fund" written in the memo line.***

The money raised will be presented to Eve's family and the UNC Student Body along with the resolution adopted by the Student Senate.

The money will go towards a memorial scholarship in Eve's name based on the wishes of her family.

You can read more about it here:http://universityrelations.unc.edu/alert/carson/carsonfund.html

Come out to the Brickyard and help support this important cause! Also spread the word to your friends and classmates!!

I can't understand that if her family wants to do it...why are they asking us?

assuming that wasn't , her family is going to set the parameters on the scholarship, e.g. if it'll be a Study Abroad thing since she liked studying abroad, a "servant leader" award, etc

and baonest I'm not sure what to tell you, I wasn't a friend of the other 2 so I haven't really felt the urge to publicize donations to their respective funds (assuming they have them). if the friends of those respective individuals end up taking donations let me know and I'll send some $$$ their way as well

duh,

you have to be rich and/or popular (and white?) to make national news and have a memorial fund

for every rich, popular (and white?) murder victim that gets lots of news and funds

there are probably a half dozen poor, unknown (minorities?) that get one mention and nothing

which is why I won't be donating one fucking penny to eve's fund

instead,

I'll give extra to anti-drug-war causes, (Media Awareness Project, Drug Policy Alliance, DRCNet, Libertarians, etc.)

because they are the only ones actually trying to eliminate gangs and terrorists (by bankrupting them)


now go ahead and tell me that the fact that this kid could "earn" a grand in one day had nothing to do with it





rather than regarding addicts as full citizens that simply happen to have an unfortunate health issue

rather than having affordable and clean (pure) amphetamine, cocaine, and heroin at pharmacies

rather than giving a third to a half of police budgets back to them to fight real crimes

you drug bigots would rather create a black market whereby gangs and terrorists get nearly all their revenue

and contribute to tragedies everywhere from 9/11 to eve carson

gg


and no, I'm not trolling

Seriously, 392, just shut up.

I barely visit this site anymore, but it seems like every time I log on, I read something you've written that reminds me how much I can hate someone on the Internet.

392 is nuts. I'll donate simply because she was so bangable when she was alive and recently dead.

i feel bad for the girl, her family, friends, and classmates too, but i'm not giving a penny of my money. it sickens me that this is so publicized yet there is nothing about the Duke student who was killed earlier this year. why didn't we wear Duke blue one day also?

^^Yeah, Mahato was pretty much forgotten until they found out his murder was connected to this; otherwise, it was pretty much just another murder as far as the media was concerned.

Oh, and if you wore blue today, you are a turncoat, plain and simple, regardless of the reason. Have fun cheering on your Holes in the tourney, traitor.
