Support for Aelfin Michel

Aelfin Michel - Critical Condition - Hua Hin, ThailandSadly, on December 31st, Aelfin tragically crashed on a motorbike causing him to suffer severe head and face trauma.  Aelfin is currently in ICU under 24 hours medical care and constant support. When Aelfin arrived in emergency he required immediate surgery to remove bleeding on the brain and had part of his skull removed, which will need to be replaced with titanium.  His jaw and teeth were severely smashed which will require surgery, as well as other serious facial and head injuries.   Unfortunately this is a very critical situation.  Due to the severity of his head injuries he has had many operations to date and requires many more, plus 24 hours support and months (if not years) of therapy.  The latter is not yet known as we are currently taking it day by day, knowing that each day is a miracle. Aelfin is a fighter and at every set back he is fighting to stay here with us.  For those that know him will know his determination and stubbornness.  This trait is shining through in his fight for his life.  This gives us hope. Holding onto this hope and knowing that Aelfin will keep on fighting, there is a long and very expensive battle ahead of us. He requires many more surgeries, and unfortunately at this stage, we are unsure of the extent of damage and rehabilitation required.   We urgently ask all of you to help support Aelfin and his mother, Emma, with the extensive ongoing medical costs and medical care that Aelfin needs now and for the coming months.  ALL of the funds donated will be used to cover Aelfin's hospital bills, medical and rehabiliation expenses. We would like to express our gratitude for your kind donations to the SUPPORT AELFIN FUND. Best regards,Aelfin's support team

A trip for a better world

(version française plus bas) Hello everyone & welcome to this money pot!My name is Mickael, I am 40 years old, French, and September 27, 2019 is going to be the first day of my one-year trip around the world. Throughout my journey, I will seek to connect, discover and volunteer with people who work on topics that matter to me: education, the environment and music. Education is, in my opinion, the foundation of development. Today's children will be the actors of tomorrow. Reading and writing is not a privilege but a right, regardless of the country.The environment is threatened. Despite the neurosis, there are local initiatives that must be helped to protect the flora and fauna.Music brings people together, promotes self-assertion and local cultures, and serves as a springboard for other artistic talents or passions. This personal project has been well prepared and I have self-financed from savings made over past months. I created this money pot to raise money and donate it throughout the trip to local initiatives. For every €10 paid in this pot, €9 will be directly distributed to local initiatives to support their project in either areas (education, environment, music). The remaining euro will help me personally during these missions. How will the money be used? Here are some examples that will become clearer over the next few months: Financial contribution towards the purchase of supplies, material, either for schools, or cultural centers, or animal health shelter, etc.  You will be able to follow my progress on instagram and facebook @whereismike2020 and I will keep you informed as well by email every time money is used. For those who only wish to support me personally on this travel project, a pot is available here: http://www.leetchi.com/c/whereismike2020 Give however much you wantAll payments are 100% secure Thanks in advance for your participation!   Mike  Bonjour à tous et bienvenue sur cette cagnotte en ligne ! Je m’appelle Mickaël, j’ai 40 ans, français, et le 27 septembre 2019 sera le 1er jour d'un tour du monde en solo qui va durer 1 an.   Tout au long de mon voyage, je vais chercher à entrer en contact, découvrir et aider des personnes (bénévolat) qui oeuvrent pour des sujets qui m’importent :  l’éducation, l’environnement et la musique. L’éducation est, selon moi, la base pour aider au développement.

Plant an olive tree in Palestine

Welcome to our campaign - Ahlan wa Sahlan :)  We are fundraising to plant more than 1000 olive trees in Palestine and need your help to make this possible. Olive trees are symbolic of Palestinian identity and attachment to their land, resistance and resilience. For the last forty years, over a million olive trees and hundreds of thousands of fruit trees have been destroyed by the Israeli occupation. "Security reasons" is the justification given by the Israeli’s for the uprooting of trees, while in reality Palestinians' olive trees are destroyed for the expansion of Israeli settlements and their bypass roads, the building of the Israel's "Apartheid wall", and as a result of Israeli settlers' violence in the occupied West Bank. This campaign will target small–scale farmers, low income families, female-headed families, and those disadvantaged from land confiscation and uprooted trees. We have a trusted team of volunteers in Palestine who take care of all the work on ground and provide regular updates on the trees planted with photos which we will share with all our supporters. The planting will be done from the end of November to March 2020.  One olive tree costs just £6 and it will help by:- Providing food, oil and medicine for hundreds of years- Saving Palestinian land from Israeli theft- Assisting Palestinians, for whom this remains the main source of livelihood  Olive trees carry more than an economic significance in the lives of Palestinians. They are not just like any other trees, they are symbolic of Palestinians’ attachment to their land. Because the trees are draught-resistant and grow under poor soil conditions, they represent Palestinian resistance and resilience. The fact that olive trees live and bear fruit for thousands of years is parallel to Palestinian history and continuity on the land. Palestinians are proud of their olive trees; they take care of them with care and appreciation. Palestine has some of the world’s oldest olive trees, dating back to 4,000 years. Some families have trees that have been passed down to them for generations and the olive harvest season in October bears a socio-cultural meaning where families come together to harvest olive trees bearing in mind that their forefathers and mothers had tended to the same trees several years ago. What better way of keeping the Palestinian struggle alive than by planting an olive tree on the blessed land of Palestine? Baha + Shazad + Zeyn

Help fund a cochlear implant surgery for 18 month old baby

Raising a funding campaign as I came across the story of Marc Alexander, 18 month baby boy born in Haiti and diagnosed bilaterally deaf (both ears). Long story short, Haiti does not have the proper medical infrastructure and the government support to help this little boy get a cochlear implant surgery that would give him the ability to hear and speak. The longer he waits to get the implant, the more irreversible speech and development delay will occur.  This would cost USD 30,000 including a trip abroad to get the surgery done (I myself have done research for my daughter and no kidding, it really cost that much). I spoke to his mother who didn't know what to do and who to turn to, and I felt the need to help them.  As a French national and a Hong Kong resident , and as a mother of a 6 months deaf baby myself, my family is fortunate enough to have access to the best-in-class health support, excellent medical care and infrastructure ...and this is all (or almost) FREE!! We tend to forget how lucky we are. This little boy does not share our luck.Please take some time to read his story, DONATE and SHARE THIS POST to help him get access to a cochlear implant surgery, this amazing, life changing technology that will give him back the gift of hearing and speech.Carine Story of Marc Alexandre: Hello everyone. We are Kamaïa and Darlin Jeanty, parents of 18 months old Marc-Alexandre. We live Haiti, one of the most under-developed country in the world.We suspected the deafness of our son when he was 2 months and a half, as he was not reacting to sound. Due to lack of medical resources and infrastructure in Haiti, we were unable to obtain a diagnosis right away. When Marc-Alexandre turned 12 months old, we had been recommended to have him checked out in Republic Dominican. Without a second of hesitation, we took out all of our savings and bought a flight for the 3 of us to go meet an ENT specialist there. The results were devastating: Marc-Alexandre was diagnosed bilaterally deaf (both ears). We were not sure what to do or where to turn. We do not know if he would ever say, "I love you Mommy and Daddy." We have prayed for a happy, productive life for Marc-Alexander, and we want him to go to school and someday graduate from university to pursue a career and a life that he chooses.The ENT was adamant that our son needed cochlear implants; Implanting Marc will give him access to sound which will provide him with the only chance of age-appropriate speech and language development. This will provide him the opportunity to a better education and independent employment as an adult in the future. If not implanted, it may lead to permanent changes in the auditory cortex in the brain which may make it impossible to benefit from a cochlear implant or any form of hearing restoration surgery in the future.  The cochlear implant bypasses the damaged portions of the ear and directly stimulates the auditory nerve. The signals are generated by the implant and are sent passed the auditory nerve to the brain where the signals are recognised as sounds.  However, the cochlear implants will cost USD$30,000 as we do not have insurance and there is no government social subsidy or help of any kind. We are raising money to pay for medical expenses including surgery, cochlear implant device, and a trip abroad for the surgery.Marc is growing up and as his parents; we know we have to do something. The only future for our son is to hear with cochlear implants. Just like everyone else, we want to give him the best possible future there is.Life is so precious and this innocent boy who deserves the right to live normally. In advance, we extend our heartfelt thanks for your incredible moral and financial support. Thank you for helping us change the life of our child. Kamaïa and Darlin Jeanty

Una Rosa nel Cuore

Una Rosa nel Cuore

Cari,Ricevete questa mia lettera perchè ho fiducia in voi, e voi in me, e so di poter aprire il mio cuore e raccontarvi quanto sto per scrivere. Il 19 giugno 2002, una Rosa si è spezzata cadendo dalla scala che conduce ai binari della stazione Roma Nomentana. Rosa, nostra madre, ha lasciato un vuoto in me e nei miei fratelli, aveva 59 anni. Vi potrei raccontare di questa Rosa, di una donna gentile, umile ma forte, che ha cresciuto da sola i suoi tre figli in una vita di impegno e lavoro. Rosa, come tutte le mamme, aveva dei progetti. Sognava di aiutare una figlia, Giancarla, in difficoltà, con tre bambini e un marito violento da cui si stava separando. Desiderava assistere alla Laurea della sua seconda figlia, Barbara. Sperava un futuro più certo per Cesare , che non aveva voluto studiare.Chissà quale è stato il suo ultimo pensiero, forse noi figli? i nipotini? e poi quella scala su cui si è spenta la sua vita e ha portato via ogni sogno. Quel giorno, 19 giugno 2002, Rosa stava tornando a casa dal lavoro.Il ricordo di una telefonata da parte di una vicina che aveva saputo da altri pendolari e che racconta "solo" di una caduta in stazione, sulle scale metalliche di Roma Nomentana.Una delle viti fuoriusciva troppo dal rivestimento metallico della scala. Proprio su quel gradino, accanto alla vite, venne ritrovata la scarpa di mia madre Rosa, lei, il suo corpo, qualche gradino più sotto. Una corsa in ambulanza già esanime. Una corsa verso l'ospedale, il Sandro Pertini, la speranza, poi il nulla. Al nostro arrivo quella meravigliosa Rosa si era spenta. Neppure un ultimo saluto. Solo dolore, vuoto, senso di impotenza. Il sopralluogo dei carabinieri rilevò quella vite che non avrebbe dovuto fuoriuscire, evidenza di una non idonea manutenzione e scarsa cura nella gestione, affinché non vi siano pericoli per i viaggiatori. Oggi. Dopo 17 anni, un altro dolore sta colpendo noi tre figli e orfani di Rosa. La giustizia, i tribunali, la burocrazia, non guardano ai dolori e ai sogni infranti. In tribunale i morti non hanno voce. Ed è così che oggi, secondo una sentenza che non comprendo, dovremmo essere noi tre figli di Rosa a risarcire per quell'incidente. Vi chiedo dunque con urgenza un aiuto. Per noi è un nuovo momento di sconforto, di dolore e di grande senso di impotenza. Molti di voi già lo sanno, ci conosciamo da molto, lavoro da quando avevo 16 anni, per pagare gli studi e aiutare mia madre. Quando ho iniziato a lavorare stabilmente, dopo la laurea, sono stata sempre un sostegno per i miei fratelli e i miei nipoti. Non è stato semplice soprattutto perchè non potevo contare su nessun altro. La somma da risarcire è importante ed ho deciso di chiedere supporto a Voi, a chi mi conosce. Dobbiamo risarcire le spese legali per un valore di 15.000€ (inizialmente erano 29.000€ la Società ha accettato di limitare alle effettive spese legali e rinunciare ai 'maggiori oneri') Da parte mia, ho chiesto alla Società che la somma resa venga poi data in donazione, non possono rinunciare a chiederci il dovuto ma possono decidere poi di effettuare una donazione pari ai 15.000€ da risarcire. Vorrei che tutto questo si trasformasse in un aiuto per una Casa Famiglia, con madri in difficoltà (proprio come la mia Rosa). In questo modo il dolore e il ricordo di nostra madre diverrebbe un atto di amore e l'inizio per un altro sogno  Condivido con Voi che se avessi avuto mai un risarcimento per la nostra Rosa spezzata avrei realizzato un progetto, Villa Rosa, una casa famiglia in onore di nostra madre. Ciascuno può fare la differenza. Voi potete fare la differenza aiutandomi con questa mia raccolta fondi. GRAZIE DI CUORE! Barbara_____________________________Dear all, you are receiving this letter because I trust you, and you trust me, and I know I can open my heart and share with you what I am going to write. On June 19, 2002, a Rose has been cut by falling from a poorly maintained staircase leading to the tracks of the Roma Nomentana railways station. Rose, our mother, left a void in me and my siblings, she was 59 years old. I could tell you about this Rose, a kind, humble but strong woman, who raised her three children on her own throughout a life of commitment and work. Rose, like all mothers, had plans. She dreamed of helping a daughter, Giancarla, in difficulty, with three children and a violent husband from whom she was separating. She wanted to attend the graduation of his second daughter, Barbara. She hoped for a more certain future for Cesare, who had decided to quit school. Who knows what her last thought was, maybe she thought of us, her children? Of her grandchildren? And then that staircase, that took from her her life and all her dreams. Today, after 17 years, another struggle is affecting us three children, Rose's orphans. Justice, courts, bureaucracy, do not care about sorrow and broken dreams. In a trial the departed have no voice. And so it happens that today, according to a sentence that I do not understand, it's us, Rose's three children, who have to pay for that accident. I therefore ask you for your help. For us it is a new moment of discouragement, sorrow, grief, and we feel neglected and powerless. On my side, I asked the involved company we have to financially compensate to eventually donate this sum to a charity organization. This sum amounts to € 15,000, that they reclaim to cover the legal expenses they had due to the trial we children lost against them. I wish all this would turn into a support to a Family Home helping mothers in difficulty (just like my Rosa). In this way the grief and memory of our mother would become an act of love and the beginning of another dream. But before getting to this point, we children have to collect the 15.000€ that the company is claiming from us. Be sure that if we had won the trial and if we had received a financial compensation for our broken Rose, this is what we would have done: starting a project, 'Villa Rosa', a family home in honor of our mother. Each of you can make a difference. You can make a difference by helping me and my family with this fundraiser. Thank you!BARBARA

Kwé Kwé et bonjour les amis de Mikinac, Certains ne le savent peut-être pas encore mais la jolie forêt à Bren a été touchée par la tempête de neige qui a eu lieu dans la nuit du 14 au 15 Novembre dernier faisant de nombreux dégâts. Beaucoup d’arbres ont cédé sous le poids de la neige en tombant entre autres sur la yourte et le dojo. Par miracle, personne n’a été blessé, Thomas a pu se protéger à temps et les autres cabanes sont intactes. De découvrir que ce lieu, qui accueille notre transformation à travers de nombreux enseignements, a été aussi endommagé a profondément touché un certain nombre d’entre nous : de la tristesse face à tous ces arbres à terre, de la compassion et du soutien à la terre-maman qui a souffert et une profonde envie d’aider Thomas à restaurer le lieu.  D’où est née l’idée d’un appel aux dons.  Le dojo et la yourte ont subi des dommages nécessitant de nombreuses réparations. Cette restauration a un coup et même si les assurances prennent une part, cela ne sera hélas pas suffisant. Il va falloir louer du matériel pour déblayer, nettoyer, enlever les arbres tombés, les débiter pour récupérer le bois …. Et la terre-maman ayant enlevé ce qui doit être, Thomas envisage de replanter d’autres arbres.  C’est l’occasion d’une renaissance pour les prochains stages à Mikinac dès le printemps prochain. Pour soutenir le formidable élan à contribuer à la restauration de ce magnifique lieu, l’équipe de Mikinac a en effet besoin de soutien : -  Qu’il soit financier à travers cette cagnotte (contribution à discrétion de chacun). Cette levée de fonds permettra de nettoyer le lieu avec le matériel adéquat et de replanter des arbres. C’est le renouveau à l’EST de Mikinac et son équipe de choc est prête à travailler d’arrache-pied !-  Ou qu’il soit physique par votre présence, équipés de bonnes bottes et de gants pour donner un coup de main. Shoumis (Dominique Rankin) et Kokum (Marie Josée Tardif) nous invitent au respect de soi. Donc évidemment, chacun contribue comme il veut et comme il peut. Il n’y a aucune obligation. Surtout écouter son cœur et se respecter.Toute contribution qu’elle soit matérielle ou immatérielle (un mot de soutien, une pensée, une prière, etc…) est déjà en soit un cadeau. Et vous avez déjà été nombreux à manifester votre soutien. Migwech (Merci).  L’équipe Mikinac vous donnera des nouvelles sur l’évolution des travaux pour restaurer et préserver ce magnifique lieu qui accueille notre guérison et notre transformation dans cette belle énergie des bois. « Tchi Migwech » à tous de rendre tout cela possible et sachez que vous serez toujours bienvenus dans notre forêt. L’équipe Mikinac

onefinestay - Australian bushfire fundraiser

onefinestay - Australian bushfire fundraiser

Hi all,  The Aussies in the London office will be putting on a small morning tea on Wednesday 15th January to raise money for the bushfire crisis.  We wanted to open this pot up to the wider onefinestay community for you all to have a chance to donate as little or as much as you feel comfortable with.There have been so many communities and wildlife affected by the horrific fires all over Australia and any spare change can go a long way to helping rebuild.  All funds raised will be divided and donated to the Red Cross and WIRES Australia.  Thank you so much for all your support!The onefineaussies  A little more about our chosen charities: Australian Red CrossThe Australian Red Cross have launched a joint disaster appeal with the ABC to support the communities affected by fires, and have raised more than $2 million already.While they are heartened by donations of food, clothes and people offering to open up their homes, Red Cross say they’re not in a position to take and distribute these items.“Our experience with emergencies shows that donations of money, where possible, help affected communities recover soon,” the charity said.“Our specialist emergency volunteers are providing psychological first aid, working at evacuation centres and helping people to get in touch with their loved ones.” WIRESIn WIRES history, they have never seen a concurrent series of emergencies events like those that began in November. Hundreds of fires over weeks have burnt over 4.9 million hectares of land in NSW alone. Many animals were already struggling with a lack of water and food due to the drought. With the fires destroying unprecedented amounts of habitat, food shortages have increased and lack of suitable habitat will be a significant long-term challenge for surviving wildlife.It is impossible to know how many animals have perished and it will be many months before the impact on wild populations can be better understood but ecologists at Sydney University have estimated over 800 million animals have been affected in Australia since September. Summer is a frantically busy time for wildlife rescue and there are still over 100 fires burning in NSW. In December alone there were over 20,000 calls to WIRES 1300 line, a 14% increase on last year, and volunteers attended over 3,300 rescues.

Cagnotte de Soutien aux Saisis des Sound Systems

Cagnotte de Soutien aux Saisis des Sound Systems

Récapitulatif de la free party du Nouvel An 2020 en Belgique Sound systems : Emblematik / Prototek / 013 / Absurd / Osw / Boerenkinkels La free party a commencé aux alentours de 23h le 31 décembre 2019. La police était présente tôt, avec une dizaine de policiers, accompagnés de deux chiens d'attaque (des malinois, dont les muselières seront enlevées à un moment donné, on ne sait pourquoi). Le commissaire est arrivé et nous a demandé de quitter les lieux, en débranchant de manière sauvage la génératrice. Le public déjà présent, s'est alors rapproché des policiers en les huant pour faire pression. Les organisateurs ont clairement fait reculer la foule pour essayer de trouver un terrain d'entente avec les forces de l'ordre pour que tout se passe bien, et négocier de rester jusqu'au lendemain 8h00 du matin. Heure à laquelle nous aurions coupé le son, rangé et nettoyé le site, ce que nous faisons à chaque fois et qui se passe de manière civilisée avec les autorités.La police a alors décidé d'enlever les muselières aux chiens et de nous virer par la manière forte. Cela ne fut pas du goût du public présent, bien décidé à ce que la fête de Nouvel An ait lieu : on n'arrête pas un peuple qui danse ! Du coup, la foule s'est avancée, en lançant quelques pétards et en criant fort ! Il n'y avait ni milice privée armée, ni nunchaku ! Comme évoqué aux JT de RTL, RTBF et dans les journaux, notamment L'Avenir (Luxembourg). Il y avait juste une foule qui avait en tête, sans doute pour beaucoup d'entre nous, les images de la répression hyper violente du Nouvel An à Vilvoorde en 2017. Et pour les nunchakus, ils ont sûrement dû confondre avec des bolas de jonglage (sic). La police est donc partie le soir du 31 décembre. À noter que dehors, la police a gazé plusieurs personnes complètement pacifistes. Selon les autorités, des gens les auraient caillassés : nous n'en savons rien étant à l'intérieur du bâtiment. En tant que porteur du mouvement free party, nous décourageons toute violence. Des personnes qui étaient à l'extérieur n'ont rien vu de cela, alors vérité ou intox médiatique ? Nous recoupons encore les témoignages pour y voir clair…Par la suite, la soirée s'est déroulée sans aucun accident pour les participants. La fête s'est terminée le 2 janvier 2020 aux alentours de 6h00 du matin, heure à laquelle le son a été coupé, où le rangement ainsi que le nettoyage du site ont commencé. La majorité des participants était partie et il ne restait plus que "nous" (les sound systems, et quelques fêtards).La police fédérale est alors arrivée. Les agents nous ont mis dans une pièce sans explication et ont fouillé les véhicules, sans témoins de perquisition, pendant qu'à l'extérieur ils dégageaient, à coup de matraque sur les camions, les derniers fêtards. Ensuite, nous avons a été emmenés au poste de police d'Arlon et placés à 6 par cellules, sachant que la cellule fait 5m²… Tout le temps de la détention, nous avons reçu 3 verres d'eau (voir rien du tout) par cellule… Aussi, personne ne nous a cité nos droits… Finalement, nous avons été relâchés 10 heures plus tard et 30 heures pour 7 autres camarades. Tout ceci sans avoir reçu d'explication ! Pendant ce temps, nos chiens ont été placés à la SPA et un rapport de maltraitance a été rédigé contre nous. Il y a également eu une perquisition à domicile, ce qui a permis à la police de saisir du matériel sonore, en plus de celui employé le soir du Nouvel An. Une cagnotte est ouverte en soutien aux sound systems (frais de justice, pertes financières...) et un cabinet d'avocat nous défend. En effet, 5 véhicules, la génératrice en location, notre petite monnaie, le matériel visuel et sonore sont toujours sous saisie, dont nous sommes sans nouvelle. La police d'Arlon refuse de répondre à nos questions relatives à cette affaire. Une plainte contre les forces de l'ordre va être déposée pour les différents vices de procédure et les conditions de détention ayant eu lieu.

Aqum - Katha Vidya - Divinely inspired life - From Psychedelics to the Avatar of the Age

Aqum - Katha Vidya - Divinely inspired life - From Psychedelics to the Avatar of the Age

Beautiful people of Earth! My name is AQUM and I wish to tell you about a project which is very close to my heart and for which I am going to need help. Many people in the past have asked me to write a book about my life story... I have had an adventurous, quite extraordinary life in many ways which has caught people's attention more than once. But the idea of a book has morphed into something I call KATHA-VIDYA which means "The science of Storytelling" (in sanskrit language) The reason for this is that music plays an essential part in the story and only with a live presentation can it be represented. Thru my story illustrated with slides, pictures and music I composed in the 80s, it is the journey of my soul that I wish to convey to you. We will travel to many countries where I have lived (India, Nepal, France, Australia, Spain, etc...), we will go through the motions of this human experience which has taken me from the shores of California, to the beaches of Goa, to the social services of France and to the ashram of Saï Baba in India where I am now. The time has come for me to share the knowledge that I have acquired, in a fun and entertaining way. We will sing together, we will dance, pray, meditate.... and  together we will shine and shine.... This event is the work of a lifetime. In order for it to happen, I need your help.  I am aiming for this event to be on the 31st of May 2020 in Ibiza and hopefully it will look like a TED talk presentation. I really want it to be free of charge, which means that we need to cover the cost of the rent of the venue, technicians, equipment, the recording studio for my original music, a videographer and a flight from India where I am now.  My estimate for the budget is approximately 6000 euros. Your contribution would be greatly appreciated! Let us do this together! Love  AQUM.....THE ACID QUEEN UNIVERSAL MOTHER at your service
