In the past month alone, the number of people fleeing their homes since Putin’s invasion of Ukraine has reached 10 million. Over 400 million children live in countries affected by violent conflict; many are forcibly displaced, sometimes orphaned and unaccompanied, in search of safety. Children are especially vulnerable to abuse, exploitation and trafficking during emergencies and armed conflicts [source: UNICEF.ie].
Sometimes, it can be hard to know how to help raising the kind of money needed to make a difference can seem insurmountable. But, every cent helps and when people come together we can achieve great things. What’s more, we have a creative community in Ireland that is willing and ready to give their time and talent to raise much-needed funds for UNICEF so that they can help children affected by war.
On Saturday 16th April, Easter weekend, nine incredible Irish acts will perform at ARTISTS AMPLIFY UKRAINE: a fundraiser gig for children affected by war. Taking place at The Workmans Club, Dublin, 6-11pm, this is a line-up not to be missed.
Presented by Amplify Agency, this very special night aims to raise €10,000 for children affected by war, to be distributed via a recognised, registered charity. All of the artists are performing free of charge; The Workmans Club is providing their main room venue free of charge; renowned illustrator Aaron Fahy (clients include Lil Nas X, IDK and Bree Runway) has designed the poster and graphics for this show free of charge; Tickets.ie has reduced their booking fee to €1.50 for this event so €20 of each ticket sold goes directly to charity.
In addition, we have teamed up with Dublin Shirt Co. to produce 100 limited edition t-shirts, designed by Aaron Fahy, that will be for sale as part of a bundle on Tickets.ie and on the night while stock lasts. T-shirts are €20 and Dublin Shirt Co. has kindly agreed to waive all printing fees, meaning that €16.30 (81.5%) of the cost goes to charity.
