Members of the Association of Political Science Students (APSS) at California State University, Dominguez Hills
held a bake sale last year to help support the building of a school in Afghanistan. When they were unable to
coordinate with their initial contact for a fundraiser this year, they instead reacted to a new crisis at hand,
the aftermath of Typhoon Ketsana, which killed hundreds in the Philippines last week Senior Nicole Bwrede, who
serves as APSS public relations chair, says that she diverted the focus of the fundraiser in order to make fellow
students more aware of current events across the globe.
