Sumatra Earthquake Benefit

The Following letter is from Jon Rose, the founder of Waves 4 Water...

I'm writing to remind you about our benefit concert we're putting on to help the Sumatra Earthquake victims.

As most of you probably know this is a cause that is very close to my heart... I was in Padang when the earthquake hit and fortunately had ten water filters on me. I was able to see first hand, the effects that these devices can have on a region. When I left, the local red cross workers said to me - "when can we get more filters?"

That said, I have since dedicated myself to this cause and have been trying to raise money to get more filters over there.

There is a few ways you can help but let me just put it into perspective - $25 = 1 filter. One filter can provide clean water for an entire family for up to 2 years. It's a small price for a big solution.

If you are interested in supporting this, I encourage you to come out this Sunday to our fundraiser. It will be a fun filled evening with great performances by Peter Distefano, Humanlab, and a special acoustic set by my good friend, Timmy Curran. All the event details are in the attached flyer...

Lastly, you can help just by spreading the word. Awareness is incredibly powerful and I thank you in advance for your support.

Cheers and hope to see you this weekend!
