Concordia's Centraide campaign is in full swing, and several lively events were held recently to make people aware of this massive appeal to help local charities.

Music students in Andrew Homzy's jazz classes entertained the noon-hour crowd in the lobby of the Henry F. Hall Building, while volunteers "sold" apples and pencils, much as the poor did during the Great Depression.

On another brisk fall day, Engineering students urged passersby to put a loony on the duct-tape "Loony Line" outside the Hall Building. It was part of a friendly competition between students at the Montreal universities.

Employees should have received their letter soliciting donations to Centraide through the mail, including an explanation of how to give through a pay deduction. This is a virtually painless form of generosity, and it's a gift that gives all year.

Be generous -- Centraide is keeping afloat 250 charities, from food kitchens to pre-school programs.
