Supporting Talent; June list

June 10, 2014

So I’m a mini crowd-funding addict. Sometimes it’s books, gadgets and green products; other times it’s just a few dollars in hope to make a difference.

Here’s what i’m supporting this month:

  • The amazing Tania Saleh, for her new album “A few images – شوّية صور” [link]
  • Edward Maalouf: Road to Rio De Janeiro 2016 Paralympics [link]
  • National Youth Orchestra of Iraq trip to the US to perform [link]
  • Green Glass Recycling project Lebanon (if you haven’t noticed yet, this blog is a major advocate) [link]

Everbody Leaves by Art 7aké
