These hard-working, warm-hearted staff members in the John Molson School of Business held a Teddy Bear Adoption Day on Nov. 14 and raised more than $2,000 for Centraide. Concordia bears were donated by senior administrators, and about 150 other teddies were donated. Some buyers donated bears to the Montreal Children’s Hospital.

Pledges are still coming in, and although the participation rate is down, the total is up over last year. The goal is $100,000, but we can do better than that.

A first-time-ever bazaar/flea market/garage sale was scheduled for yesterday in the LB atrium. The campaign to support Montreal-area charities continues until the final thank-you raffle on Nov. 28.
