Voula-Pa-Looza : B-day Partying with Purpose
Organized by: Paraskevi Papadopoulos
EVENT DATE Sep 24, 2016
To mark 35, I felt it was appropriate to have another Voula-Pa-Looza and try to raise money for the refugee crisis in Greece. I found an organization on the island of Lesvos Greece that is simultaneously doing that and helping the environment. With custom fees being so high, the best way to support them is financially. So I’m asking my friends and family to help me collect money for them in lieu of any gifts or presents.
Lesvos (aka Mytilini) is especially important to me as I remember traveling there with my Yaya (Grandmother) who passed away this summer.
The festivities will begin at 3:00ish on Saturday, September 24th at my place and will go until they no longer go. I will feed you and hydrate/dehydrate you, so come hungry. Please consider a small contribution even If you can’t make it, and I will try to send you some spanakopita in the mail. :)
And if you want to learn more about the organization go their FaceBook pagehttps://www.facebook.com/dirtygirlslesvos/ and check out some articles that have been written about them and the island of Lesbos: https://www.theguardian.com/travel/2016/mar/24/lesbos-greek-island-in-limbo-tourism-refugee-crisis-future http://www.huffingtonpost.com/entry/refugees-clean-laundry-lesbos_us_56785f43e4b014efe0d65292
