A HOLIDAY FOR HUMANITY October 30, 2016 Entertainment, Events A HOLIDAY FOR HUMANITY 11:11. 11/11. 1111. This set of numbers speaks to so many of us, regardless of age, race, religion or background. Universal in its appeal, much in the way of music, math and love, 1111 speaks to us in such an eerie fashion we must take notice and delve deeper into this phenomenon. Presented by Follow The Beats, the 1111 Festival takes this sychronicity we all feel and expands on it. It is a concious festival to celebrate our similarities, to transcend man-made boundries and revel in all that is human and remarkable, a New Holiday of Love and Togetherness; For and between each and every one of us! Starting at 11:11 AM on 11/11 and continuing to 11:11 PM we are dedicating the day to connecting us all on a very basic and much needed level and To Do Good. Every year, wherever we go we will be choosing a local cause in the community. This year, the issues are close to home, but much more than local ones. Hurricane Matthew, the strongest hurricane to hit the Caribbean in a decade, has left a trail of destruction. Haiti, which has been pummled by 5 Hurricanes now in the last 8 years has a death toll climbing into the 1,000s, a half a million people left homeless, bridges out, basic supplies are unable to reach these beautiful people who desperately need our help. We will be raising funds for Global Empowerment Mission while sharing live pictures of the devestation that needs immediate attention and action. Haiti. Needs. Us. And now! We will also be following our inner heartbeat – our PULSE, as we dedicate a discussion to the PULSE Orlando tragedy victims, to collectively grow from it and share love with one another. We are all brothers and sisters under one sun and moon. There have been many victims of this tragedy that need all the support they can receive, and we have chosen the children of the victims of this senseless tragedy. We have aligned our sights on Bridges of Light Foundation Victim Education Fund. It is to assist the children left behind and to instill hope in their hearts while raising money for their college.
