If you’re in LA & free next Friday night, i want to invite everyone out! We’re celebrating AJ Rafael and Carl Choi’s birthdays with a fundraising party at The Great Company in DTLA. We’re partnering with the Peace Project again to raise money to build at least 8 houses in the Philippines, and we’re asking for a $20 donation to be able to do so (it takes just $500 to build a house for a family).
Please come by. There’ll be live performances from AJ Rafael, Tim Be Told, Toestah, myself and many others. See you at 8pm
If you’re around the LA area, hopefully you can come out tonight to support us and our efforts to rebuild the Philippines. There’s going to be some great performances from myself, AJ Rafael, Corina Round, Gab Valenciano & Da Poetry Lounge poets.
It’s a fundraiser and you can come for free. (There’s a suggested donation of 10 bucks but give what you can) All the proceeds go to our efforts to rebuilding the Philippines. It’s just as important to me for you guys to come and support, every picture or tweet you guys send out will help us reach our goal. Here’s the website for more info: www.thewhole9.com/bringlove
And you may wonder what the goal is… It’s simple, we’re a smaller organization and our first goal is to rebuild a small village named Santa Fe. We want to rebuild 200 houses over the next 6 months that got destroyed in typhoon Haiyan. The first wave is a 56 house community and with our “Family to Family Program” you and your family can buy a house for a family in the Philippines for only $500! For a small sacrifice for us here, can mean the world to a family overseas.
So please support, come and hang out tonight and give what you can. It’s going to be a real family environment… I would love to see you there.
So this is my first blog of the 2014 and I want to use this as a way to introduce you this new idea called “#the8th”. It’s really a simple idea I’ve been developing with a great group of Asian American artist as a way for us to help cultivate and spread…
So many of you know that we’re crowd funding for a new film I wrote and am producing starring AJ Rafael and myself and we’re in the last week of fund raising. I don’t know if we’re going to reach our goal, but as a producer, I’m trying figure out ways to help us get as close as possible.
One idea that I came up with, especially for my tumblr heads and Homestucks this limited edition tee shirt, it’s kind of a mashup of my teeshirt company logo with a Homestuck twist! It’s only available this weekend!
Please help us get this movie made! AJ is an amazing artist and I wrote this musical film for him… He’s reaching out to his fans for support, I’m reaching out to you guys. Even a dollar helps… Even just spreading the word!
This shirt is just an extra idea, something I think is cool… Hope you guys dig it… And thank you for all your help, those who’ve already supported and everyone who can help out now.
So I figured how I can get the discounted tickets for everyone on tumblr & twitter. A limited supply are available right now for half off the door admission for only 10 bucks!!! Buy them now and you’ll be on the priority list to get in the club! See you Friday!!!
