Lets fund a well in Cambodia

DONATE HERE

Last time we had a book made for children in Laos. This time I think we should buy a well for a village in Cambodia.

For $1500US we can have a well installed, to provide clean water to an entire village.

Whatever else we raise will go to donating gardens and beehives.

“We are not an “aid” organization… We are an empowerment organization. We “teach a person to fish”, but we go one step further: Each village uses a “pass-it-on” element of community service, so the village families not only help themselves, but help neighboring villages. The result is sustainability within the villages, and replication of the model as village families volunteer to help surrounding villages. The work is comprehensive: We empower the village families to create a sustainable quality of life, helping them acquire fresh water, irrigation, schools, agriculture, skills and income generation.

We employ ONLY native Cambodians as paid staff. ALL international officers, directors and consultants are volunteers who are unpaid. This allows us to keep our overhead and fundraising expenses under 3%, and funding from the founders pays more than this modest amount. So literally 100% of your funding goes into helping the rural village families. ”

There’s more info about Sustainable Cambodia here.

Edit: the donation of wells in Cambodia come with the option of a sign that is situated at the well site, that names the donor. Nah. I think we can live without that.

Dry July!

I’m doing Dry July this year to raise funds for the Royal Melbourne Hospital. No booze for a month. This will be made more difficult by the fact my new comedy room starts in July, and there are also a lot of July babies in my friendship circle who are all having parties.

So, donate and make it worth it.

Brisbane Comedy Festival and Adelaide Fringe!

So, I’m producing two shows for Brisbane Comedy Festival, and two shows and the exhibition for Adelaide.

Here they are!

 

BRISBANE COMEDY FESTIVAL – Danny McGinlay – Muck Up Day

 

BPH_2016_BCF_Danny_McGinlay_1_2016-1178x663.gif

 

Muck Up Day. The greatest Australian tradition of all. What did you do? Danny McGinlay got arrested.

It’s the conversation topic that ignites the competitive juices of every single graduate, now destined to become a relic of the past as more and more schools outlaw the practice. Danny McGinlay tells the story Victoria Police have kept suppressed for fifteen years.

After 12 years of education, the final rite of passage was upon the students. An epic final battle of eggs, shaving cream and flour. Then things escalated…

Arrests were made.

Just another day in the life of an inner city state school student.

A brand new hour of stand-up from one of Australia’s funniest.
