ReSurge International is seeking entrepreneurial-minded and philanthropy-focused college students to be our campus ambassadors as part of the new college edition of our ReThink Burns campaign. We are thankful to Ketchum, Inc., a global public relations firm, which helped us develop ReThink Burns: College Edition on a pro bono basis.
Did you know that nearly 11 million people are severely burned annually? Almost all of them live in developing countries, where prevention is almost nonexistent and medical care for burns is extremely limited. Without immediate access to care, those who survive are left with injuries that heal themselves, destroying normal function and often disfiguring victims. Click here to learn more about the solvable global health crisis of burns.
Campus ambassadors will build awareness of
this neglected global health crisis of burns and the work ReSurge is doing on
Activities include (but are not limited to):
- Help save a life - Challenge others to ReThink Burns, one photo at a time, through ReThink Your Social for one week in November.
- Change your life - Earn a trip to a developing country by producing the winning video in the ReThink Your Summer video contest.
- Inspire your campus - Be our Campus Ambassador and connect with faculty, media professionals and students at universities nationwide. Educate your community about burns and help transform the lives of thousands through ReThink Your Campus.
reaching out to students in creative ways, managing a social media campaign,
pitching to media outlets and building a relationship with a well-established
organization, the campus ambassador role is a valuable leadership position for
a student to hold and to highlight on a resume or during interviews.
