If you’re in Tokyo, come to this fundraising event and make a difference. There will be great live music and a raffle in the warm, friendly surroundings of the Lighthouse Bar. It will also be an opportunity to meet people who have been involved in activism and volunteer activities for a long time.
ALL proceeds are going to Global Giving, as they direct funds to vetted local NGOs, who are effective and understand cultural sensitivities.
UPDATE 1: We managed to raise 131,500 yen ($1096) at tonight’s Nepal fundraiser. I had hoped to raise more, but due to the national Golden Week holidays, many couldn’t come tonight. Anyhow, it is still a substantial achievement that will be forwarded immediately on to Global Giving tonight.
Thank you to all the fantastic musicians who contributed their talents and time tonight. Also, thank you to Fleur and the fantastic staff at the Lighthouse Bar, as well as their generosity. Much thanks to all who offered a compassionate heart to the people of Nepal.
We must all continue to support Nepal!
UPDATE 2: All money has now been transferred to Global Giving.
