Weʼve raised £600 to support the fire victims in Attica & Mati, Athens in Greece to rebuild their lives. #AthensBuskAid
- London, UK
- Funded on Monday, 31st December 2018
Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered nonprofit.
The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.
People have lost their homes and loved ones in the towns of Kineta and Rafina in Athens, Greece due to the wildfires that ripped through the villages in July 2018. People are displaced, desperate and in need of our help! We feel there are simple things we can do in order to help support these people rebuild parts of their lives. We are fundraising to support those directly affected by the fires.
We will be performing a series of short performances via Facebook Live feed seeking generous donations for the cause to make a difference. Please tune in to be entertained by our online busking sessions performed by a number of known, working artists in support of the victims.
All money raised will be sent directly to the Hellenic Red Cross which is the biggest non-governmental organisation in Greece with a complex task that is based on voluntary work for direct response to the citizens.
As summer is often a busy time for all with events, holidays, childcare etc I knew it would be a hard task to arrange a concert at short notice to get musicians and artists together for a dedicated performance and fundraiser. I had this idea of a living room style intimate gig so artists would be able to use their talent to help a worthy cause by sparing 30 minutes of their free time in the comfort of their own home, and so #AthensBuskAid was created. - Georgio Elia
