URI students to kick off social media challenge to fight childhood malnutrition

Posted on
Kickoff today, March 2, 2 to 4 p.m.


WHO: University of Rhode Island students are fighting global childhood malnutrition, spreading the word and raising money for Edesia with the #MakeYourGreenCount Plumpy’Nut Challenge, a March social media campaign encouraging people to “get their green on” and donate by St. Patrick’s Day, March 17.


#MakeYourGreenCount plays off the “getting your green on” associated with St. Patrick’s Day celebrations and the idea of making your green – your money – count for something important. URI students, faculty, staff and administrators will participate.
