well from all the ideas being flung around the ragga Muffin thread i thought i would separate this off and get some work happening...

so just spoke to the Evelyn Hotel (thanks Itations) they are really keen to get on board...
2 possible dates 7th or 14th of feb - i'm opting for the 7th but would not start till 7 as they have another band booked from 3 till 7, but they can stay open till 1

so thinking a whole heap of DJ's playing short sets so throw yuh hands up if you want in.

Entry will be by donation

so far we have
Myself
Mr Savona
Jesse I


also any other help in other areas, flyer design postering. also thinking of having a door raffle if i can line up a good prize (any ideas of companies that might want to donate )

Very good and important question that I thought about in my original thoughts about this. Who? And also how does the public know how much was gathered and given to the said organisation? Accountability and transparency are essential in any fundraiser activities.

Possible place for the monies to end up... i would feel better putting it into a Haitian run organisation - and i got this from Notes from Blue King Brown on FB

From BKB Facebook - Our backing singer Lady Nadee is one of approx only 80 Haitians living in
Australia. Her and her siblings would like me to tell about the H.C.M
(Haitian Christian Mission) who supported them as orphans and whose work
is as crucial as ever now...

a lil background:

H.C.M began in 1974 and it's dedicated to helping the hurting people of Haiti.
They run 53 schools, one hospital, nine nutrition centers, three orphanages and a woodwork shop as well as the sponsorship program for children.
During the past two months 50,000 people have been fed.

For more information and to give donations please visit http://www.hcmsupport.org/
or email hcmaustralia@gmail.com

Australia may be on the opposite side of the world, but we have the same beat in our heart and the same longing for a safe, happy and healthy life lived without poverty
and without violence.

Blue King Brown, Nadee, and her family will continue to raise awareness and money to help rebuild Haiti..join us.

spread the word...

peace and strength>>>
x N


What do you guys think???

Yes, Looks like they do some great works. Though you would have to look at it in terms of who has the greatest capacity to help on the ground right now.

Its a great idea to help a totally Haitian run org but it could be very difficult for HCM to get food out to people and provide medical supplies when everything needs to be brought in from overseas.

Though in the long run they will need help rebuilding their schools and orphanages (even more then before).

Somthing you'll have to look at and make a decisions on how you feel (and how you you feel your donators/sponsors will feel)

Massive big up fi yuh works Torty!!!

totaly agreed but as this is my first event ive run as a fund raiser im all up for ideas on how to insure that there is full accountability and transparency...

firstly i would think we would get Evelyn staff to collect the monies for entry and hopefully they can count it independently...

any other ideas on how to keep everyone informed

Speak to someone at the charity you choose and get info on where the money is going, what they are doing, what more needs to be done, how people can help futher ect ect and make sure enough of this info is passed on the punters & sponsers. and take e-mails and details of anyone how wants to be kept up to date.

If your just collecting money to donate to another charity you don't really 'HAVE' to do this but i'm sure it will incourage people to be more generous.
