Well done to all the hardworking and passionately committed people in the Fremantle community who organised the RESTORING NEPAL CONCERT and other events. I was just told that close to $ 30,000 was raised for the earthquake victims in Nepal.
So a very, very big THANK YOU! to the musicians from Empire Blues, Mutima Band and the Nervous investors, and to those who donated items for the raffle, and the Fremantle Sailing Club for supplying the venue.
It gives one a real warm and fuzzy feeling to see that people do care, even about countries and people they have never met. Well done all and thank you so much!
A reminder that tomorrow evening the Fremantle community will try to raise money for the earthquake victims in Nepal at the RESTORING NEPAL CONCERT at the Fremantle Sailing Club. It starts at 7 pm, Saturday June 13 and tickets are only $ 25.00 so come along for an evening of music by the MUTIMA BAND and EMPIRE BLUES and more.
There will be a silent auctions with some great items for sale such as a five day stay in Bali, a fully signed jumper by all the Fremantle Dockers footy players, etc.
The Buddhist Gyuto monks of Tibet will be in attendance so maybe this will be the rare chance of seeing them dance.
The bar will be open and there will be food for sale, so no reason whatsoever to stay at home!
Please spread the word through your network as every dollar will help to get shelter and clean water to the affected people.
Exciting news that thanks to the generosity of BLUE BODY SPIRITUAL CENTRE the Guyoto Monks of Tiber will be attending the RESTORING NEPAL CONCERT on June 13 at the Fremantle Sailing Club.
This will be a fundraising and fun raising evening with music by Empire Blue and Mutima Band and great things to buy at the massive silent auction.
Tickets for the night are only 25 dollars, so it’s a bargain that will help the victims of the earthquake in Nepal and Tibet.
Tell your friends, buy tickets at presents for birthdays, etc. and come en-masse to support Nepal!
Please spread this through your social media and other networks!!!

Come along to support a great cause and have fun while helping others!
There was a good atmosphere in the Fremantle Notre Dame university Drillhall last evening with many people browsing through a large number of clothes brought in for the CLOTHES SWAP FOR NEPAL fundraiser organised by Acacia Armstrong.
I don’t know how many people attended and how much money was raised but there was also a silent auction of bicycles generously donated. There will be a few more of them at the Concert for Nepal on June 13, so book your tickets!
At the Fremantle fundraising concert for the earthquake affected people in Nepal we will also do a silent auction, so hopefully the Fremantle business and art community will support that with generous donations. Hotel stays, dinner vouchers, artworks, and things that might raise significant money is what we are looking for. We already have a wonderful five days stay at the Blue Buddha villa in Bali that alone is worth attending the concert for at the Fremantle Sailing Club on June 13.
Of course we are also very happy to just receive donations from the corporate sector, maritime industry, City of Fremantle, Fremantle Ports, the tourism and development industry, etc.
You can contact me via email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 0419 850981

RESTORING NEPAL-THE FUNDRAISING JOURNEY OF A COMMUNITY is a Fremantle based initiative to help the earthquake victims in Nepal. This is what the Facebook page states:
This is our journey to raise $20,000 in emergency earthquake relief in Nepal ~ being donated to Oxfam and The Gyuto Monks of Tibet.
We are a grass roots community group with members from the Perth Nepalese community, ethical fashion retailers based in Nepal, the Gyuto Monks of Tibet (based in Kathmandu), the University of Notre Dame, and individuals and families who have been personally affected by the earthquake disaster.
Come and meet our team at fashion and music events linked below or donate to our Crowd Funding page.

A Stitch at a Time Fashion Launch ~ 30th May 2015

Our set fundraising goal represents 50 Major Emergency Appeal Relief kits from Oxfam each providing 11 families with life-saving water kits, emergency hygiene kits and a temporary toilet to avoid the spread of disease and provide dignity to people who have almost lost everything.
Together we aim to empower the capacity of Nepalese and Tibetan people to rebuild their country and preserve their cultural heritage.
