Dear tumblr! We are throwing our second party this Saturday, and our first fundraiser! DJ Jaqi Sparro had the idea of doing a benefit for the Philippines and it sounded like a worthy way to spend time prepping for a party. Over the last few weeks, Browntourage secured performers and DJs to donate time, and quite an epic line-up of donated items for our raffle (acupressure massage, qigong classes, studio production time, artisan bags..). We want all proceeds to go to two organizations, NAFCON and TIGRA, to support on the ground relief efforts in a trustworthy way.
This year has been amazing for Browntourage (there will probably be a ~*~year in review~*~) and it’s time to pay it forward to call in the next chapter for us. We attempt to engage the global community through our musings, art, curation, and it only makes sense to bring our resources together to give what we can to help typhoon victims during the holidays.
Above you’ll find a fact sheet of where the donations to TIGRA are going— a great program that has long lasting effects on the community, family, and economic stability of the regions affected.
If you are in the Bay, join us in Oakland on Saturday for this event! It’ll be a party, there will be tons of raffles from local shops/institutions/designers/artists and special guests. The Facebook event has a huge list of dope prizes! Not to be missed! If you’re not in the area, go to the links for the organizations above and see how you can help! Please spread the word!
We’re harnessing all the posi vibes for this one, and hope to make this part of an annual holiday tradition <3
