Tashi and the Monk4 14th Dec

 

There will be a special screening of Tashi and the Monk at Fremantle’s LunaX in Essex Street on December 14 to raise funds for the Jhamtse Gatsal Children’s Community.

The movie is about the special school in the Himalayas that looks after 85 abandoned and neglected children, so well worth viewing and supporting.

Check the details on the poster above.

ARTISTS AGAINST AIDS PROJECT

Posted in art, bangladesh, fremantle, west australian by freoview on May 29, 2015

I received the email below from my friends Ros and Ian de Souza, so check out the crowd funding site and support them:

For the past 18 months Ian and I have been working with a group of artists from Western Australia developing an arts in health project called DRAWNTOGETHER – the Art of Life.

Our DRAWNTOGETHER team has been invited by UNAIDS to deliver a community arts workshop program in 2015 for people living with HIV/AIDS in Bangladesh.

Please take 3 minutes to view our Pozible campaign on http://www.pozible.com/project/196613 and, if you can, please spread the word to your networks with this link to help us get to Dhaka in July. It will make a real difference where it is most needed.

Thanking you in anticipation.

DONATE AND HELP RESTORE NEPAL

Posted in earthquake, fremantle, nepal by freoview on May 10, 2015

Nepal aid

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 roel.loopers@iinet.net.au or call 0419 850981

FREMANTLE FUNDRAISER FOR NEPAL!

Posted in earthquake, fremantle, nepal, tiber by freoview on May 3, 2015

nepal

Save the date! JUNE 13! FUNDRAISER FOR NEPAL AT THE FREMANTLE SAILING CLUB!!!!

Live music, silent auction, raffles with all prizes donated by our generous community with big hearts. More details soon!
All donations to Oxfam and the Gyuto Monks in Nepal.

We plan to buy 50 families or more with Oxfam family packs over 500 will be helped with tents, drinking water, blankets, portaloos, first aid kits, etc.

The monks, like most others in Kathmandu, are outside under tents/tarpaulins with little access to water and food and other facilities. They are unsure about the condition of their monastery and not allowed to and too frightened to go inside.

The Gyuto Monks are very well-known in Fremantle and have made regular visits to Freo. They also have participated in the very funny Divinity Cup cricket matches in Princess May Park, playing against teams from Clancy’s and  St Patrick’s.

COME AND SUPPORT THE FUNDRAISER OR JUST DONATE MONEY!

I will post more details soon as they come to hand.

LOOPY THE BOOED SAMARITAN

Posted in fremantle, samaritan by freoview on December 12, 2014

I love people because we all have such different personalities, so the start of today gave me a good laugh and a sense of bewilderment. As I always do on Friday my first trip is to the Fremantle Herald to pick up a copy and read it over a coffee. An older lady was just packing her car and took the second last pile of papers, so as a community-minded person I thought to be a good boy and carry the last load to her car for her. She was not delighted though and looked at me angrily. She did not want it and had to rearrange something in her car first she told me sternly. When I proceeded to put the stack of papers on the ground she told me I had to return them to where I got them from and walked next to me to point out the exact spot I had taken them from. My explanation that I had wanted to assist her were shrugged off and not a thank you or smile was offered. I am a booed Samaritan. ; > (

I HOPE YOU ARE ALL O.K. TODAY!

Posted in fremantle, health, Uncategorized by freoview on September 11, 2014

It’s R U OK? Day today, so here some supportive energy for all those who suffer from depression, anxiety, panic attacks, etc.

Do remember YOU ARE NOT ALONE! I know it feels like it when one is deep down in that big black hole, when one feels so utterly alone and abandoned, and when the word future only appears to be for other people.

It is not true that there is no hope and help, so please let your friends know how you really feel and give them a chance to support you.

The world is a much better place than what we give it credit for when we are depressed.

Have a good day and smile at a stranger and say hello.

NIGHT HOOPS WILL MAKE A REAL DIFFERENCE

Posted in fremantle by freoview on July 24, 2014

It should have been a public holiday, because it is a rare occasion indeed when Premier Colin Barnett visits Fremantle. But cynicism aside, he came for a good cause to launch the Night Hoops basketball project for at-risk youth.

The Premier said it was a fundamentally important project that he strongly supported, and he thanked local governments and businesses for getting behind it. He said it would teach young people how to interact graciously with one another and that sport is a training ground for learning social skills.

Griff Longely, who has been running the highly successful Midnight Basketball in Midland and who will organise the Fremantle/Cockburn Night Hoops with a group of volunteers, said that finding the right way to get together in society was hard, but the Midland project showed that is can be done.

The Town Hall atrium was full of who is who in Freo with the tall brigade of Richard, John and Griffin Longley towering above the rest.

Also there: comedian and author Ben Elton, super chef Anna Gare, Fremantle Foundation CEO Dylan Smith, Chamber of Commerce CEO Tim Milsom, Notre Dame Uni Vice Chancellor Celia Hammond, Sirona Capital managing director Matthew McNeillie, CODA architect Kieran Wong, Member for Fremantle Simone McGurk, Cockburn Mayor Logan Howlett, officers of the WA Police, developer Bruce Moriarty, Brian Smith of the Bendigo Bank, and of course the Fremantle Mayor, most Councillors and several City of Fremantle directors.

I believe that Night Hoops is exactly the kind of ‘low hanging fruits’ project that will make a difference, so congratulations to all involved!
