Earlier today, student organisation SDM (Studenti Demokristjani Maltin) launched a project in collaboration with the President of Malta Dr. George Abela, through which SDM will be selling pink wristbands to students with the aim to reach €7000.
“Last year during the day of Istrina, we managed to gather €2000 from just our members in a bit less than two four hours,” started SDM President Mark Grech. “This time we wanted to do something bigger, something which will involve more students and gather more money for this good cause.”
Grech also added that the aims of SDM do not revolve only around entertainment and elections, but also around organising events which others will benefit from.
“This is the greatest initiative that a student organisation has ever done towards Istrina” concluded the SDM President.
Yesterday evening, Pulse also launched a philanthropic event called ‘I Pink I Can’, which is aimed to create awareness against breast cancer. Pulse will be selling wristbands at the price of €1. The money gathered will be donated to the Malta Hospice Movement.
Moreover on the 30th October, Pulse will also be organising a “wear a pink shirt day” and also a pink gathering which will take place at the Junior College foyer at 12 pm.
