Geography Cares’ Annual Chili Fest happened on February 27th with proceeds aiding the building of schools in Pakistan in honour of Malala Yousafzai, a Pakistani schoolgirl who had been targeted by the Taliban in 2012 for being an outspoken advocate for women’s right to education in Pakistan. We were able to raise $230 from the chili sale in two short hours!
Special thanks to Sandy, Kevin, and Julie for making the delicious chili!!!
