In an effort to give back to Madrid some of what it has given to us, the IMBA November 2013 Intake, in conjunction with Campus Life and #IECares, has collected donations to create care packages for the homeless around our city. We have received an outpouring of support both through donations and package assembly. We raised 679€!! On Tuesday, December 16th, we handed out the 60 care packages.

The idea was started after learning about Mark Bustos, a barber in New York City, who spends his spare time supporting the homeless in New York by giving free haircuts and care packages. Mark started the hashtag #BeAwesomeToSomebody, and we wanted to carry it forward with #IEBeingAwesomeToSomebody and #IECares.
We hope that incoming intakes will continue the tradition!
