FeelGood Raffle Extravaganza

FeelGood is raffling off ten amazing baskets to anyone who is smart enough to buy tickets! These baskets are filled with a range of exciting things, from tasty treats to gift cards. Sponsors such as Jules Thin Crust, Allways Cafe, Huntingdon Valley Crossfit, the Trenton Thunder, and All Aboard Cafe have generously donated to the cause, and the BAC FeelGood chapter is excited to give these prizes to the lucky winners on Tuesday evening, May 23rd.

Buy your tickets online or in person at the Bounty Farmers Market on Saturday, May 20th, or at the Residence Life BBQ on Tuesday, May 23rd, where the drawing will take place (you do not have to be present at the raffle drawing in order to win).

When you buy a raffle ticket, what does your money go toward? Ending poverty and hunger on a global scale through an inspiring and community-building mechanism called FeelGood!

FeelGood is a youth-led movement turning students’ college years into a time of effective global action. On campuses across the country, students run a successful social enterprise—a grilled cheese deli— to raise money and build public support for the end of extreme hunger and poverty. In the process students gain critical business, leadership, and teamwork skills that serve them throughout their lives.

Chloe Kund, co-founder of the FeelGood BAC chapter, is proud to say that to date $19,000 has been raised on the BAC campus. An avid supporter of the FeelGood initiative, Chloe has been a student volunteer, a counselor at the FeelGood summer conference, and for the past two years she has served as a FeelGood “changemaker ignitor.” Years ago Chloe fell in love with the FeelGood mission and didn’t want to stop being a part of it after graduating in 2014. She says, “It’s something that fuels me– it’s a very bright spot in my life that connects me to a movement I believe in.” Chloe will be serving as the BAC “changemaker ignitor” next year as well, helping more students help others.

Maia Wyncoll is the marketing and PR chair for the BAC FeelGood chapter. She volunteers her time and talent because she wants to make a difference. She says, “It’s easy to get caught up in the mentality that as a college student I can’t make an impression on the world…but FeelGood has helped me see that each person can have a good impact, and as a team working toward a common goal we can have an incredible impact.” Maia’s work with FeelGood has brought her out of her comfort zone and helped  her make good friends both on the BAC campus and across the US and Canada through the FeelGood network. She’s also found an internship through this experience that she is very excited about!
