    Weʼve raised £6,887 to Support Beirut Emergency Relief

    London to Beirut
    Funded on Friday, 25th September 2020

    What is crowdfunding?

    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.



    Lebanon stands shaken, devastated and stripped. Besides facing a collapsing economy and a deadly pandemic, Beirut has been hit by an apocalyptic explosion that has left the city and her people at the brink of collapse. With current fears of humanitarian disaster, a city which has gone through so much, is facing its most profound challenge. It is of utmost urgency that frontline medical and emergency staff receive international support to carry out life-saving services to the people of Beirut.


    52% of the proceeds will be donated to the Lebanese Red Cross

    24% to Haven for Artists, a Beirut based NGO that endorses, encourages and exposes the modern underground art scene of Lebanon and the Middle East, while distributing direct help on the ground.

    24% to Tunefork Studios, a specialized sound and music workspace that helped shape the Lebanese experimental, alternative and contemporary music scenes since 2006 and works directly with artists whose studios, equipment and tools have been destroyed in the blast.

    Donations to the Red Cross will be made through their donation page on their website. Haven and Tunefork donations will be sent through bank transfers to each organization’s donations team who will be able to withdraw the money to support their ongoing relief efforts on the ground.

    Thanks to each and every one of you who helped by donating, attending and spreading the word.

    * No donations will be given to Lebanese governmental organisations * ______________________________________________________________________

    WHO WE ARE: This crowdfunder has been organised by key actors from the UK’s events and festival scene who have all been profoundly influenced by Beirut and see the urgent need to mobilise for emergency relief. All donations will be processed and held by Marsm UK and transferred directly to relief organisation in Lebanon.

    This event is organised by producers whose work includes productions at: Marsm UK, Glastonbury Festival of Performing Arts, Boomtown Fair, Bestival, Camp Bestival, Fusion, Shambala, Notting Hill Carnival and Arcadia.
