It's hard to believe that the end of the term is nearly upon us, but graduation is tomorrow! The ceremony will begin at 8PM GMT. Any additional course posts or extracurricular posts should be submitted before then.
(aka PARTY POST
TOMORROW (Saturday) at 8PM GMT!)
Before we conclude our time here at Starfleet Academy, I would like to direct all cadets' attention to a distress signal we have received.Over three weeks, Pakistan's floods have claimed nearly 1,600 lives, the national disaster management authority said Wednesday. They have affected more than 17 million people, leaving some 4 million homeless. An estimated 6 million people are in need of emergency shelter, of which just over 1 million have received tents or plastic tarps.
And thousands of people are still fleeing. (source)
Please visit help_pakistan to find out how fandom is helping and what you can do. If you can't donate monetarily, perhaps you can auction off a fic, fanart, etc. But hey, you don't have to go very far to help -- we here at ontd_startrek are offering the following:
- Three (3) opportunities to decide the subject for a future Character Appreciation post. Minimum bid for each is $1. edit: the three highest bids will win, so you don't have to beat the highest bid -- just the fourth highest! I note this because some of you are probably looking at chesari 's incredibly generous bid and thinking "I can't beat that!" Well, you don't have to :)
- One (1) ontd_startrek party post in your honor, on a date/time of your choosing. Minimum bid is $10.
- If you have other ideas as to what we can auction, please let me know -- I'm a little tapped out creatively from academy week, so I'm open to ideas!
The winners will donate the winning bid directly to one of the aid organizations listed on help_pakistan
and provide documentation to the mod team here. Please bid in the comments!
