London For London Charity EventGot an email from the charity London For London, publicising an event. I will show it in full here:
I am working with a charity London for London, which is a new charity set up by two young Londoners, Ryan Kohn and Laura Fraser, which aims to unite every nightclub, bar and pub on October 3rd so that anyone who goes out that night and walks through their doors are asked to pay a £1 donation to LFL. All the funds raised will be used to support three organisations whose work addresses violence amongst young people (Kids Company, Metropolitan Police Cadets and Capital Radio Help A London Child).
They have a huge number of venues supporting the charity and event (ranging from the Nick House venues to venues such as Cargo in Shoreditch, etc, see the website for the full list at www.londonforlondon.com). They also have huge support from personalities such as Prince William, Sienna Miller, Lisa Snowden, Lauren Laverne and Boris Johnson.
Leading up to the event they are running workshops and promotional activity to educate individuals further on the problems in the city, ranging from kids workshops, celebrity events and they have teamed up with Not Just A Label (www.notjustalabel.com) who ran a competition for their upcoming London designers to create a fashion T-Shirt for the campaign, the winning design was selected by Lisa Snowden and Lauren Laverne and will be sold leading up to the event and showcase at London Fashion Week (see the design at the NJAL site)
