As you all know, Van, Turkey was hit with a 7.2 magnitude earthquake just this past weekend. The death toll is rising quickly and any assistance possible is being sent to the region. At Koç, donation boxes are set up all over the campus for warm clothes, hygiene products and other necessities. If any of you would like to help in the relief efforts, you can donate a few dollars to the Turkish Red Crescent (Very similar to the American Red Cross). The American dollar is quite strong against the Turkish Lira right now, so each dollar you donate is approximately 1.75TL.

Please keep the victims in your thoughts and prayers!
