Millennium Fellowship Project: Threads for Twelve
I hosted a clothing drive on-campus to benefit the Big Brothers Big Sisters Foundation. The event was hosted in conjunction with the UN Association at Northeastern, and sought to draw a connection between the drive and SDG 12. The event featured faculty guest speakers about the SDG, the ethics of consumption, and the work of the Big Brothers Big Sisters Foundation.
