Students back UN women’s fund

MARQUETTE – A group of Northern Michigan University students has organized a fundraiser called “Draw the Line with Daisies” to raise awareness of honor killings in Pakistan and support efforts to decrease them.

The students, who are enrolled in an international health issues class, said they chose daisies to represent their cause because the flowers embody simplicity, patience, strength and beauty. Daisy seed packets will be sold at $5 per packet and potted daisy plants at $10.

The fundraiser will take place from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday at the Westwood Mall in Marquette. All proceeds will be donated to the United Nations Development Fund for Women.
