SHARE UCD (which stands for "Students Helping in Aftermath Relief and Education") is a service organization at UC Davis which works to raise awareness and provide relief and educational aid for victims of natural disasters, especially after media coverage and other relief efforts have dwindled. Our goal is to recognize and act on the fact that the lives of disaster victims cannot move on as quickly as the media, and thus we strive to elicit continued support even after the spotlight dims. A group of concerned UC Davis students founded SHARE in response to the tsunami disaster that struck Southeast Asia just over one year ago. Last year, we raised over $10,000 to build a technology-based learning center for an orphanage in Sri Lanka to provide education and a sustainable future to hundreds of youth affected by tsunami.
Last Year, our donation helped fund this technology center in Sri Lanka. More details can be found at http://www.shareucd.com/past_events.html
This year, we will be hosting a Food and Wine Festival and Auction. The evening will consist of wine and a Cajun-style dinner catered by Monticello Bistro, live entertainment, a collection of the finest wines from local wineries, and a wide assortment of auction items. Keynote speakers include the Chancellor of UC Davis, Larry Vanderhoef, and the Mayor of the city of Davis, Sue Greenwald.
All of the proceeds from the auction will be used to rebuild and replace parts of Martin Luther King Jr. Elementary School, which was destroyed by Hurricane Katrina. SHARE will partner with Communities in Schools in order to aid MLK Jr. They need funds to renovate buildings, replace antiquated books, and make the changes necessary to build a new educational environment and help make New Orleans a home for students once again.

Hello ShareUCD. Welcome to the wiki and thanks for creating a page about your organization. Pages for organizations are typically have the same name as the organization. The proper page name for SHARE UCD would be SHARE UCD. Also, you should consider using your real name when editing. It lends credibility to the edits you make and to your organization. The CamelCased pages, such as ArlenAbraham or RobRoy are reserved for users' personal pages (pages about themselves), rather than any particular organization. Another example: When KevinWan, proprietor of Sophia's Thai Kitchen, makes edits to that page, he does so logged in as KevinWan rather than Sophia'sThaiKitchen. —ArlenAbraham
