A week ago my home studio was the venue for a salsa live stream event and fundraiser where 5 invited DJs and me marked my birthday.
The event was great fun, there was a good audience, and we managed to collect about ¥149,000 (US$1100) in donations for one of my preferred charities, Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF), also known as Doctors Without Borders.
MSF is an important organization that provides crucial humanitarian medical assistance in several hotspots around the world, often under dangerous circumstances for its dedicated medical works and staff. It relies almost entirely on donations, so it’s crucial for gather grassroots support for support it. I’m very pleased and proud of the team of DJs and our generous audience for crossing the US$1000 threshold. In the big scheme of things, it’s not that much, but every little bit counts. The spirit of collective action and awareness-raising is important, too. Find out more about Medecins Sans Frontières.
This fundraising project is a yearly event. I do it every birthday for MSF.
Participating DJs this year were DJ Eddie Hunt, DJ Hong, DJ Atsushi A-Chango, DJ Mosquetero, and DJ Nik. What lineup!
With warm thanks to everyone who contributed who contributed to the cause.
