DIH (Demokratik Itiraz Hareketi, Democratic Objection Movement, itirazhareketi.com) has started a charitable campaign to help university students within Turkey travel to their home cities to vote in the Constitutional Referendum of April 16, 2017. Istanbul Technical University Alumni Association of the USA is helping with the fundraising campaign.
The HayirliBilet (meaning Good Ticket or Auspicious Ticket) is a campaign to help university students who wish to travel from their current location within Turkey to their home cities to vote for the referendum but lack the financial resources. In average, the support for each student is around $55 which equates to 200 Turkish Lira. Hayir also means NO.
The selection of students is completed with much care. We reach out to students with financial need. Students are selected after interviews to determine their travel distances. Once selected, we deliver only the ticket and no other cash payment is made.
Our organization, the Democratic Objection Movement (itirazhareketi.com), provides this service only to enable young students to exercise their constitutional voting rights and be heard. This contribution is a charitable donation to our NY State registered 501(c)3 non-profit charitable organization.
If you prefer, you may donate as "Anonymous" without listing your name in the sroll.
We are very much thankful for your sincere interest and help.
