Friday, February 12th
Hands for Haiti Hands for Haiti is being co-organized by two expat volunteer groups, PLUR and Green Drinks Korea, with the help and cooperation of several businesses in Korea – namely Hongdae clubs Jane’s Groove, FF, and DGBD. The event will take place on Friday, February 12, 2010, kicking off at 9 pm. The cover charge of 10,000 KRW will get you admission into all three of the clubs, where an extensive line-up has been scheduled for your listening pleasure. 100% of the entrance cover will go directly to Save the Children’s Haiti Relief Fund and a portion of all drinks sold at DGBD and FF will also be donated. When asked why she chose Save the Children as the recipient organization, co-organizer Liz Oh pointed to its established history of work in Haiti. “Save the Children is an internationally-respected, non-religiously affiliated organization that has been operating in Haiti since 1978. They have existing programs and resources already on the ground so they can distribute aid quickly and efficiently.”
