Vanuatu is a small island nation nestled in the South Pacific. It was hit by a category 5 cyclone (with winds reaching 165 miles per hour) on March 11th. Homes and hospitals destroyed, crops destroyed, water contaminated. Those who survived the cyclone are now at serious, immediate risk of starvation, disease, and dehydration.
Vanuatu is a nation of givers – a nation where people provide for others, even if it means leaving nothing for themselves. That is simply the island way: others and community always come first. But now their communities are in shambles and their internal safety net is no longer.
Vanuatu needs our help. Please join us in supporting the emergency relief efforts going on in the country of Vanuatu by attending one of the events above.
All donations will go to the United Nations International Children's Emergency Fund (UNICEF) and The Red Cross, which are currently providing emergency relief throughout the country. If you are not able to attend any of these events and would still like to donate, you can drop your donations off at the studio or make a direct donation to these organizations.
“Let’s Dance, Spread Joy & Save Lives”
