So a dear friend of ours, Tom Burke, invited Exit Clov to play a fundraiser to help support his trip to Uganda with the organization Bridge Connections. Unfortunately, the band’s out of commission, show-wise, this summer so we were unable to play.
But the cause is an awesome one, so we wanted to share it — Tom is off to Jinja, Uganda, next month to help build a new drainage system for the orphans at Rapha Children’s Haven. The dorm has been flooding on a regular basis! (…and I complain about my bathtub drain being clogged.)
This is what he’s doing about it, along with a great team of people at Bridge Connections:
On July 29, come to Ebenezers Coffee House for an unplugged acoustic show with The Beanstalk Library‘s Ryan Walker and Melodime‘s Brad Rhodes. Every dollar, dime, and shiny nickel raised will go to help a team of 11 from Bridge Connections, Inc. go to Jinja this summer and help the orphanage build a new drainage system for the boys’ dorm.
So start the weekend early, and on a good turn: delicious coffee, tasty sounds, and that warm feeling that you’ve helped others in a meaningful and tangible way.
Good music and a good cause. What’s not to like?? And even if you can’t make the event, please consider donating (perhaps your $10 admission fee?) to the project via this online donation page.
