2. Meet your department community service requirements.

3. Build your resume and be a more competitive job applicant.

4. People with asthma, especially in neighborhoods near LIU with fewer education resources need your help.

5. Save a life - someone you help may now be able to avoid an asthma attack or may be able to help someone else manage their asthma better. 

6. Reduce the number of preventable asthma deaths and visits to the emergency room!

7. Your coaches, parents, siblings, friends, co-workers, classmates and professors will be so proud of you!

8. The communities you help will be so grateful!

9. Because someone somewhere sometime helped you and this is your chance to pay it forward.

10. Your own reason...you know why you want to do this...
