Hey Friends! Super excited to announce our Ugly Christmas Sweaters to stop Ugly poverty party/Concert with The Exchange, The Pacific Standard, Iverson Brothers and Branded!
As you read keep the phrase "1=1". You'll find out what it means at the end.
Over 23 million people live on less then $1.25 a day in the Philippines. This wage can't pay for much, and unfortunately many families are forced to sell their children into slavery in order to survive. Over 375,000 girls ages 11-20 are in slavery. (For a perspective, The population of kitsap county is 254,00)
With no money, and no jobs, life can seem incredibly hopeless for many families. With no alternative the only option they have is to sell their children into slavery.
Now for the cool part. We (The Exchange) partner with an organization called "Threads Of Hope." Threads Of Hope basically gives families the materials to make bracelets, after the bracelets are made, they ship them to different vendors, sponsors, and bands (like us!) who sell them, and send the proceeds back to the Philippines.
Threads Of Hope is cool because:
1. they make sweet bracelets
2. These sweet bracelets help get families out of poverty, and children out of slavery!
Now for another COOL part! We will be donating a portion of each ticket to the families of threads of hope.
Remember the "1=1" thing? 1 ticket sold=1 impoverished persons daily wage
Along with the crazy impact we could have, this party is gona rock! We have The Pacific Standard opening, as well as the Bros, as in The Iverson Brothers! Also, this will be our Bassist, Gregor Uvila's Farewell show! So be sure to come!
There will be an Ugly sweater contest, with prizes, and other crazy fun stuff! So don't miss it! Invite your friends!
Presale Tickets are $5; Tickets at the door are $8
