Day of man with Siegfried Hall

| Tuesday, February 5, 2019

Dearest members of the Notre Dame and St. Mary’s community,

Do you like seeing your Notre Dame men dressed in very little clothing? Good. More importantly, do you like fighting homelessness? Great. If you said no to either of these questions, you also probably think UCF won the national championship last year, but nonetheless, we have the event for you.

This Wednesday, Feb. 6, the strapping, scantily-clad and, in most cases, single, Ramblers of Siegfried Hall will brave the elements and host their 13th annual Day of Man.

The tradition was born one frantic morning twelve years ago, when a Siegfried resident forgot his coat on his way to class and realized how cold the winters of South Bend can really get. He put this thought into action and gathered a group of friends to stand out in the cold to raise money to benefit the homeless community of South Bend. Over the past twelve years, Siegfried has raised over $130,000 to benefit the South Bend Center for the Homeless. This year, we once again need your help.

And so, Notre Dame, we are calling on you to stand with us and donate to help a cause everyone can get behind. Look out for Ramblers in class, on the sidewalks and outside dining halls all day and consider donating your next Uber fare (or two) to Palace. We might even make you a snow angel. If you are strapped for cash Wednesday, Day of Man will once again be gladly accepting Venmo donations, and the event will have an online donation site where you, friends and family can all donate to this worthy fundraiser. Look for the link shared on the Day of Man Facebook event page and please share it. Please help us make this year’s event our most successful ever.

Peace, Love, PDub,

Kieran Wurl
