#GiveItUp4Peace Kick-Off Party

Date:
Sep 23, 2016
Time:
Venue:
HiVE Vancouver

What will YOU Give Up for Peace?

PeaceGeeks is launching our second annual #GiveItUp4Peace campaign and we want you to join us to kick off the campaign!

Join us for beer, appies, conversation and hear fellow participants pledge what they're Giving Up for Peace and how your hard earned fundraising dollars can help support millions more refugees around the world!

Last year, #GiveItUp4Peace raised over $46,000 which allowed PeaceGeeks to deploy the Services Advisor web application in Jordan that empowers more than 655,000 refugees under its mandate by connecting them to information on critical life-saving and sustaining services such as food, shelter, and sanitation.

PeaceGeeks has received requests from UNHCR in Somalia and Turkey to launch Services Advisor in those countries, which support more than 7 million refugees and internally displaced people (IDPs). Now, we need your help to make these requests a reality. Your support this year will help PeaceGeeks to create and maintain better tools to help refugees address the most significant humanitarian crisis in history.

Join us for our annual #GiveItUp4Peace Campaign and help PeaceGeeks to raise $50,000 so we can help those displaced by conflict to improve their own lives through better access to critical services.

Did we mention there will be beer?!

Tickets Available by Donation to PeaceGeeks - please note donations over $20 are eligible for a tax receipt.

ABOUT THE FILM

HIGH TECH, LOW LIFE (http://hightechlowlifefilm.com) follows the journey of two of China’s first citizen reporters as they travel the country – chronicling underreported news and social issues stories. Armed with laptops, cell phones, and digital cameras they develop skills as independent one-man news stations while learning to navigate China’s evolving censorship regulations and avoiding the risk of political persecution. 

The film follows 57-year-old “Tiger Temple,” who earns the title of China’s first citizen reporter after he impulsively documents an unfolding murder and 27-year-old “Zola” who recognizes the opportunity to increase his fame and future prospects by reporting on sensitive news throughout China. From the perspective of vastly different generations, Zola and Tiger Temple must both reconcile an evolving sense of individualism, social responsibility and personal sacrifice. The juxtaposition of Zola’s coming-of-age journey from produce vendor to internet celebrity, and Tiger Temple’s commitment to understanding China’s tumultuous past provides an alternate portrait of China and of news-gathering in the 21st century.
