Gaza Toy Drive “Thank You” Closing Event
- Published on Wednesday, 20 August 2014 11:08
Following from their event last July, the Gaza Toy Drive initiative is hosting a Thank You event this Sunday, August 24th at Vibe Bar. They would like to thank all the people who have donated funds and given away toys, clothes, bikes, books, hygiene products, and other supplies to help children in Gaza suffering from war trauma. The Gaza Toy Drive has indeed received amazing support from the public, but they need help to take one final important step of transporting an estimated total of 15 containers to Gaza. Transporting these goods is no easy task, and they need your help! Convenient (on Brick Lane) and free, the Gaza Toy Drive “Thank you” closing event is the perfect place to go to support this cause.
Artists, performers and musicians will come together to showcase their beautiful work in Vibe’s leafy, cobblestone courtyard. Live acoustic music will be playing all day while market stalls will sell food, drinks and merchandise. Highlights include a live street art & auction, a photo exhibition, live music and DJ sets in the venue’s two rooms. DJs from Keep on Going, Nifu Nifa records, Damaged, Cartulis Music vibe their love for music in Room 1.
The line up includes:
– Secret Guest TBA
– Remi Mazet (Colors / Hot Waves)
– Georgio Oniani (Damaged)
– KLADY (Nifu Nifa records)
Support from MEOKO and friends
– Nick Maleedy b2b Tony Loi
– Kozber (Cartulis) b2b Rico Casazza
Keep on Going DJS
– Dean Marc (Softporn) b2b TBC and more
The artists involved in the live street art & auction include graffiti artist Atm Street Art, who will be creating a piece during the event. His finished work will be auctioned around 9pm. Other live artwork will be showcased by the following talented artists:
Tatiana Moressoni and Eleanor Marriot will run a Photography Exhibition and shop.
As mentioned the event is free for all. There will be plenty of activities for the kids too, in particular a Drawing Desk (draw for a child in Gaza).
Attending the Gaza Toy Drive “Thank you” closing event is a perfect opportunity to make your contribution to the children living through the conflict. Any form of support means a response to the Gaza Toy Drive initiative’s important call for help:
“Children learn so much from playing with toys. Most of all they learn to feel joy, to play and to share. Concepts such as these will stay with them throughout their life. Having a favourite toy to cherish is beneficial for children, all over the world, no matter where they are from. Help us to get toys and clothes to children in Gaza”
In the news we read of and see bombings, missiles and deaths happening in Gaza. Let’s take more important steps to actively support the people in desperate need.
