ISSA Kicks Off Month-long Hugfest

Today, we at ISSA kicked off what will be a month-long fundraiser for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society here at the University of Illinois. The idea is simple: pay a dollar, get a hug, and help cure cancer. I can proudly say that we raised over $110 just this afternoon, and we hope to repeat that performance next week, and the next week, and the week after that. We're going to hug until we can't hug any more, and then we'll hug a little more. Below you'll find some pictures from today's event, along with an awesome video put together by our new Social Media chair, Alex Fiorentini!

Just getting started around noon. Already collected a few bucks.

A hug in action!

The Mayor of Champaign even stopped by to show his support. He donated, got a hug, and told us all that he "appreciates what we're doing" and is "glad to see us out there." Talk about a class act!

This was an absolute blast, and we invite you to come by the Quad the next three Wednesdays and pitch in! And stay tuned - this is just the beginning of what ISSA will be doing to help the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society.
