Blue Dragon Fundraiser Tuesday, 03 April 2012
Starting at 3pm we’re welcoming you to come down to Track Bar and chill with some bluesy beats from local music makers while you watch Gypsy Doodle Jammers paint up a storm. As the day progresses and the good times flow, there will be opportunities to win prizes including limited edition t-shirts and the paintings you’re watching being created. Music will move through the bluesy vibe and onto gypsy and balcan hip hopy beats through to more electro fueled enjoyment later in the evening. Expect eclectic electric from some of Hanoi’s best electronic artists.

What is Blue Dragon?
“Blue Dragon is a grassroots charity working with kids in crisis throughout Vietnam.
With education at the heart of everything we do, Blue Dragon sets out to transform the lives of the poorest children and families.
Our kids come from many backgrounds, but all are in difficult circumstances and need a chance to make a change.
We meet the kids on the streets, at their workplaces, or in their homes and work with them until they can stand on their own feet and live happy, prosperous lives.”
A closer llook at where the money raised by this event will be going.
Today, Blue Dragon has a team of amazing Vietnamese staff, a small number of international staff and long-term volunteers and has achieved some terrific results.
By focusing on getting kids back into education, training and apprenticeships, we are working for the long-term benefit of children who otherwise would face very bleak futures. And in ten years time, we’ll still be here doing what we do best – creating opportunities for lasting change.
Blue Dragon relies on support from the generous people who believe in our work. Nearly 40% of our funding comes from individual donors. Every amount, large or small, is appreciated and needed.
