We wanted to show you some of the wonderful students in EWB and how much your donation is affecting their lives.

He is in the Unversity Singers choir and loves to play intramural sports. Jared's hobbies include pen turning and drinking coffee.

Questions We Asked Jared

Q: What do you love about EWB?

A: EWB is a club with a meaning. A lot of student organizations are focused more on the members but EWB is meant to benefit others. Time and effort spent with EWB feels like time and effort spent making a difference.

Q: Why do you want to go to Guatemala?

A: When you go to Guatemala and see the faces of the families in the community, it makes poverty much more real. You realize that it could just as easily have been you in that situation. Suddenly, making a difference for one person is much more important. This is why I want to be a part of the work in Guatemala.

Q: What do you hope to achieve on the trip?

A: We hope that on the trip we can build a new stove for the school at La 46. This could have a big impact on the community because it provides a more efficient and safer cooking method than the open fires they are using now.

Q: What makes you laugh the most?

A: Videos of cats getting scared by cucumbers.

Q: What is a fun fact about yourself?

A: My high school graduating class consisted of 11 students (including myself).

The First Annual EWB Tailgate and Philanthropete Kickoff

Hey everybody!

On October 8th, we hosted our first annual EWB Tailgate during the Oklahoma State vs. Iowa State game, and it was a great success! We grilled out on the Phillips 66 Plaza right next to the stadium and enjoyed some food, community, and football. We had 116 people in attendance and raised $1,131.00 for our Guatemala trip! We would like to thank everyone who came out to support us as well as everyone who donated food for the event.
