The US Campaign for Burma is excited to announce the launch of their first-ever Student Fundraising Challenge.

This fall, on campuses across the United States and around the world, students will participate in an effort to raise $32,000 to increase awareness of 3,200 villages that have been destroyed in Eastern Burma during the military regime’s ongoing campaign of ethnic cleansing.

In an open letter, a group of university students from across the U.S. has called on their fellow students to participate in the Challenge and to “stand in solidarity with students inside Burma and show that we too can have a positive impact on Burma’s future.”

Prizes will be awarded to the five groups who fundraise the most money, including For the Lady CDs autographed by Michael Stipe of REM and USCB T-shirts. The group that raises the most money will win the photograph of Burmese dictator Than Shwe that Elliot Page drew on during the Burma: It Can’t Wait video spot, plus weeklong recognition on the US Campaign for Burma homepage.

The full letter written by the university students can be found here, and more information about the fundraising initiative can be found at the US Campaign for Burma website.
