Fundraiser for Nepali Women The FYS class “Don’t Sleep on Sleep” is raising money for Visible Impact, a charity dedicated to helping improve living conditions for Nepali women subject to the practice of chhaupadi. In chhaupadi, menstruating women and girls are confined to an outdoor menstruation hut, where they are exposed to numerous health and safety risks, including a lack of sleep and much worse. The class will be holding a bake sale and raffle Dec. 2 and Dec. 9 from 12 p.m. – 3 p.m. in the Brandt Student Center rotunda. Raffle donors will be entered into a drawing for sleep-enhancing tools such as silicone earplugs, amber lightbulbs, and a free night’s stay at the Tru by Hilton hotel in Winchester. Donations are accepted at https://gofund.me/47f0c400 or scottk964 on Venmo. For more information, contact Scott King, firstname.lastname@example.org
