T-Rosemond and Ital Souls Reggae Night in support of Zanmi Lakay
Zanmi Lakay is super excited to be the recipient of these musical fundraising efforts and want to thank Toby Seeger, Rosemond Jolissaint, and all of the musicians and volunteers for their support!
T-Rosemond began his music career as a street performer in Haiti, singing his original songs inspired by the homeless street children. He won the first Digicel Stars (Haiti’s version of Amercan Idol) contest as the youngest contestant by popular vote. His lyrics resonate with people living in poverty and struggling to make ends meet. Wherever he performs, he captures his audience through his compelling songwriting and beautiful voice. After relocating to the SF Bay Area in 2010 he has been performing as a solo artist and with Ital Souls. Together they have released two singles, “Respekte” and “Fly Baby”. They perform original songs as well as classic covers, delivering energizing rhythms and vibes.
We put together a Wish List of items we need to keep our programs running: tax-deductible donations for food, shelter, school and special training fees as well as other living expenses for street children, and for airline luggage fees to get donations to Haiti. We also seek donations for Care Bag supplies: toothbrushes, large toothpaste, soap, travel size shampoo and conditioners, new adult size t-shirts (no x-large), afro combs, Vitamin C candy, EmergenC vitamin packets, small notebooks, pens, decks of cards, mini dominos, heavy duty gallon freezer Ziplock baggies, new make-up and nail polish, beach balls, and colored chalk.
Zanmi Lakay is now soliciting longer term, more generous donations for our 2nd Annual Jouk Li Jou Kan Foto – a Summer Photo Camp for Children and a Community Exhibition in Jacmel, July 2012. Items needed include: digital cameras, AA Batteries (qty200), 1 GB SD cards for cameras, two external hard drives, ink cartridges for Epson Picture Mate 4×6 printers (2 each-T557 and PM260/200 series picture packs), an Epson Workforce 1100 Printer and printer ink, photo paper (150 sheets: Brilliant Supreme Matte Paper – 13″ x 19″ – Photo Inkjet Professional Digital Media Paper).
