HCMC – The Nocturnal Animals Vietnam music community is organizing a series of livestreams to raise money to support the music community and the Saigon Children’s Charity.
The music industry in Vietnam has united to make a difference and ease the aftermath of the pandemic. Therefore, Nocturnal Animals Vietnam has created a valuable initiative to support the music industry and people in need during the Covid-19 pandemic.
Nocturnal Animals Vietnam has united musicians, artists, venues, record labels and other communities across Vietnam to create this music series in order to raise money to support the cause.
The first livestream will be held on October 16, 2021, at 12:00 noon. The event is expected to be a 13-hour musical journey across all genres.
The show will be hosted by Daniel Le, Masta B and Petey Majik. Some of the artists that will be featured in the event include Ernest Kalinin, Remy Mann, WEEDIE and Ro-TUNE.
All the money from donations will be used to support different people in the industry and their families, but the majority will go toward the Saigon Children’s Charity.
As much as 60% of the donation will go to the Saigon Children Charity’s program, “Backpack of Resilience”, which will donate aid packages to families affected by the pandemic.
Each package distributed will include food and necessities for a family of four for a month. Particularly, each beneficiary will receive 20 kilograms of rice, two bottles of soy sauce, two bottles of cooking oil, one bag of seasoning powder, two bags of dried noodles, three bags of Macaroni and one bag of dish washing liquid.
This project is the initiative of Daniel Le, 31, half Vietnamese and half Belarusian, the founder of Nocturnal Animals & Picnic Projects, together with Jonathan Delvaux (Belgium), Steffen Sonnenschein (Germany), Bui Huynh Nhu (Vietnam), Rebecca Morris (the UK) and many others.
Picnic Projects is the agency behind the campaign, pushing the program forward in collaboration with its partners such as The Lighthouse, The Hive Saigon, Party Never Stops, ZION, Skylight Nha Trang, Qui Lounge, HUM Vietnam and many others.
