Donation for Houston Flood Victims

HELP HOUSTON CHILDREN WHOSE HOMES ARE FLOODED!

On August 26th 2017, the deadly Tropical Storm Harvey made landfall in Texas. Bringing nearly 52 inches of rain to Greater Houston. Harvey unleashed its destruction and anger upon millions of Americans. Its barrage of rainfall and fast rising floods led it to be called the most dangerous storm to hit Houston in 500 years.

However, people of Houston are strong and resilient. Within days, hundreds of charities and millions of people answered the call for help. First responders in rescue boats saved trapped victims of the storm and brought them to makeshift shelters. Truly, Houston is resilient.

Neighbors are helping neighbors, strangers are aiding strangers. The American spirit is alive in Texas. We are a great nation.

Still the challenge of clean up and reconstruct Greater Houston is daunting. At least a million of school children are impacted by Hurricane Harvey and the afterwards flood. The children of Houston need your help.

Students from local AYLUS branches in Houston (Cypress, Fort Bend, Houston, Pearland, and Sugar Land) quickly responded. Together, we donated supplies, fundraised charity money, and volunteered at various shelters.

We would like to ask you to make a contribution to the children of Houston whose homes are flooded by clicking the DONATE NOW button below:

2017 AYLUS Nation Wide Vision Drive

Help the World to See! Unlock Potential in People!!

IMG_1209

One billion people across the world can’t get either an eye exam or a pair of glasses. However, in just about any home, one can find a pair of eyeglasses that is no longer being used. That same pair of eyeglasses can change another person’s life.

Clear vision empowers:

Students to be twice as effective at school

Workers to be 35% more productive at work and earn up to 20% more per year

Families to meet their basic needs without undue strain on time or budget

Collect or donate prescription glasses, sunglasses, or goggles and change someone’s life. Imagine if you could help a child to read, an adult succeed in his job, and a senior maintain her independence, and provide a community with more opportunities to grow and thrive. Recycled glasses are distributed to people in need near you or in Africa, Asia, and South America where they will have the greatest impact.

Who: K-12 Students from All AYLUS Branches
What: Collect Used Eye Glasses and Donate to Needed Children or Adults near You or in Africa, Asia, and South America – every 10 pairs of used eyeglasses you collect  will get you 1 volunteer hour!
When: All Year Long
How: Collect used eyeglasses from schools or glasses stores near you. Send them to people in Africa, Asia, or South America, or to school nurses in local schools or homeless centers.

2016 AYLUS Water Crisis Event

WATER Donation-1WaterCrisisSink

Water Crisis
A water crisis is a potentially devastating event caused by shortage or pollution of water. Due to a recent drinking water contamination issue in Flint, Michigan, between 6,000 and 12,000 children have been exposed to drinking water with high levels of lead and experienced a range of serious health problems.

On April 17th, the Metro Detroit Branch members held a fundraising event. They collected funds and plan on donating to Catholic Charities of Shiawasee and Genesee counties to help provide clean drinking water and raise water pollution awareness for those affected. In the event, the members made food items and sold them at a local Chinese food and culture festival in order to collect funds. Furthermore, knowing that this has become a nationwide issue, they would like to promote the awareness of Health Effects of Exposures to Lead in Drinking Water.

Why should I help?
• In 2012, almost $1 billion were cut from the president’s budget designated to ensuring the safety of our water.
• Research has indicated that children drinking polluted water show significant behavioral issues, cognitive difficulties, and lower IQs.
• One out of every five deaths for children worldwide is due to a water-related disease.

Who: All AYLUS branches
What: Raise awareness for water issues and crisis
When: Now until 12/31/2016
How: Hold a fundraising event and donate water, money, or bathroom supplies to water or health charities near you

AYLUS_Stock_Trading_Challenge_Large

As a platform to promote leadership
and innovation, AYLUS encourages members to explore the wonders of stock market. The mission of this activity is to spread financial literacy, and to make learning about investing fun and rewarding. Navigating through the turmoil of stock market often puts human traits to the test.
