Busking in Trafalgar Square for Médecins Sans Frontières/Doctors without Borders (UK) who provide emergency medical care worldwide to people affected by conflict & disasters.
BUSK FOR PEACE was created on International Day of Peace, 21/09/2016 by Inspire4Justice and Rain Crew with the aim of raising funds and raising awareness for crises that get little media attention.
We’d like to say a massive THANK YOU to everyone who came down to #buskforpeace support us on Sunday 2nd October 2016 by dancing, filming, taking pictures, bringing food, donating and cheering us along.
With your help we were able to raise £200 for the DOCTORS WITHOUT BORDERS to support their work in Yemen 🇾🇪 & Afghanistan 🇦🇫 who are in desperate need of medical aid.
WE ARE STILL ACCEPTING DONATIONS FOR THE BUSK FOR PEACE 🙂
TARGET: £500.00 | Current Amount Raised : £285.00
WHY WE DO #BUSKFORPEACE?
“After watching the news and understanding the power the media has in terms of their discretion of content, it made me realise that what they broadcast doesn’t always represent everyone equally and it is often biased due to external influences.” – Savan Shah
“The biggest lie we tell ourselves is that we can’t make a difference; that what we do doesn’t matter. And If we believe it, we make it true. So the first step to change is edifying oneself and becoming aware of the world, how it impacts us and how we impact it. The next is through action. These things take time but if we all do a little, it’ll mean allot.” – Clint Sinclair
“It’s important to raise awareness that the media is biased and doesn’t always cover the worst crisis/tragedy in need of aid or relief – we are trying to do our bit to change that… it takes one to start a movement…” – Savan Shah
“Taking to the streets and using our talents in such a public way to raise funds and awareness brings us directly to the people who can make a difference and provides help for those who need it the most” – Clint Sinclair
After an amazing day, of sharing and bringing peace to the streets of London we continue to raise money for the Doctors Without Borders/ Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF) (Yemen & Afghanistan)
ALL DONATIONS WILL BE ADDED TO THIS PAGE :
