American college students selling t-shirts to help Iraqi counterparts

Tamara Jafar, a junior at Harvard University, recently created an initiative that seeks to foster interest in the people of Iraq, and particularly Iraqi students.

Jafar, along with the help of Emory University graduate Sarah Couyoumjian, designed vintage-style Baghdad University t-shirts to be sold online at www.RallyforIraq.com. All proceeds go to a scholarship fund to help Iraqi students seeking higher education. This fund will help lower the costs of tuition and living expenses at institutions around the globe.

Rally for Iraq is applying for non-profit status to cater to private donations.
