In August, we bring to you PaperWeight Intimate: Chapter XVIII
25th August, 7pm onwards at Adagio (Bandra). Bringing all the #feelsbro :hearts:
We are proud to have our very own Hasan Baldiwala as a co-facilitator with Kiran Reddy. Our promise to you, we are dedicated to making this incredibly special for us all - whether you’ve been to one/many/all/none of the previous PWs - You. Are. Welcome.
As a community we wish to stand in solidarity with our fellow human beings in times of duress. Taking into account the catastrophe in Kerala, we wish to make a contribution in our personal capacity and also as the community we belong to - as artists, writers, performers, and conscious responsible people.
We are going to match the amount in revenue that is raised from the ticketing and at door walk in sales and donate all the amount to Bhoomika Trust which has a proven track record during the tsunami, Chennai floods and in Uttarakhand - and their focus is relief short term and rehab in the long term - to rebuild homes and schools for the most deserving. http://www.bhoomikatrust.org/
All proceeds from contributions will go to the relief fund: http://imojo.in/pwXVIII
You can open the link, and choose 100 rupees minimum to whatever X amount you wish to contribute online. 100+ rupees collected per participant x Number of participants = Total Revenue.
Total Revenue from ticketing + 100% match from Kiran & Shivani will be the amount we will transfer to Bhoomika Trust and share the snapshot of the NEFT transaction acknowledgement receipt.
Please bring something to share (Munchies, non alcoholic thirst quenchers, ghar ka khaana, anything to eat!)
