This announcement comes to us from National Students of AMF:

National Students of AMF is putting on the first-ever National College Student Grief Awareness Week April 7-13, 2008. The goal is to share our message – that grieving students are not alone, and that they can find support and understanding in peers through the programs that National Students of Ailing Mothers and Fathers and our campus chapters provide– with as many students across the nation as possible.

We are looking for volunteers (any age, in any location) to be an “Awareness Week Leader.” “Awareness Week Leaders” will represent Students of AMF in their communities and amongst their peers by sending out a few e-mails, passing out flyers and spreading information about this cause by word of mouth. This role requires little time or effort on your part, as we have developed a Leadership packet containing an agenda and instructions, and of course, we are here to help. Most importantly, your role is not to take this week on yourself but to recruit as many friends as possible to help us spread the word!

Please email Stephanie@studentsofamf.org if you are interested in helping to spread awareness about the organization during National College Student Grief Awareness Week.
