Randall $tephens puts mouth where his money is -24/02/2011


Mr Dollars is going to donate any payments or sales he has received while in New Zealand, dollar-for-dollar (i.e for every 1.00 NZ$ I will donate 1.00 AU$) to help the people of Christchurch recover/rebuild from this awful disaster. It's currently around the $500 mark.

I will also be donating my cut and CD sales from the 2 Sydney gigs I'm doing early next week (Text Styles #5 -Monday 28/2 and Word in Hand Tuesday 1/3). As both these gigs have door charge -please tell your Sydney friends to come along.

I'm also thinking about organising reading a selection of my NZ-written poetry as a benefit gig when I get back to Melbourne, if you'd like to be involved (know a venue that could help us?), please get in touch with me ASAP.

My love, condolences and best wishes for the people of Canterbury.

Hey Randall, this is an awesome gesture. We'll do anything we can on this end to help. We're all OK but still a little in shock. Slowly getting power and water back. The first few days were harrowing while we tracked down family & friends. Will put a post up on our blog to let everyone know. Take care, write on.
