Brothers,

I am writing in good spirits. Three years ago, the active chapter started a philanthropy to benefit a former EC's daughter who suffers from a rare disease known as Myelodysplastic Syndrome (MDS). Please read below about Krissy and our efforts to support.

MDS inhibits normal red blood cell production and the only known cure is a bone marrow transplant. Through our two events, the UCLA Sigma Nu/Kappa Kappa Gamma Team Krissy Bone Marrow Registration Drive has registered 692 people including 272 minorities, an incredible number, considering the 8 million person registry is composed of less than 5% minority registrants. Three years after Krissy was diagnosed, she still hasn't found her match. In fact, 70% of patients in need of a bone marrow transplant haven't found their match either. At any moment, Krissy's bone marrow could fail, a possibility none of us want to think about. Our next drive is November 17th--our goal: Register 750 people, the most ever in a one day drive.

Our amazing cause (UCLA Sigma Nu/Kappa Kappa Gamma) has been named the Los Angeles Most Influential College Student/ Organization at the 2nd Annual Stay Classy Awards, the largest national philanthropy awards. We're now up against the best from all over the country---please show your support by voting for us at: http://www.stayclassy.org/classy-awards/ (Must vote by November 5th--Make sure to hit submit at the bottom and fill out e-mail info). If we receive the most votes, we'll win $10,000 for our cause which will help ensure the continuity of this amazing philanthropy.

Fraternally,
Ramzi Dudum #1753
