Parachute Music is raising $100,000 to enable 500 disadvantaged families to attend Parachute Music Festival 2013.
23 years in the running, the iconic 3-day festival is held every January on Auckland Anniversary weekend, attracting around 20,000 people each year. Parachute Festival features around 100 local and international bands and an array of world-class speakers. The festival is drug and alcohol free with a strong youth and family attendance.
But not all families can afford to attend the event. In 2012, Parachute Music came up with the ‘Pay What You Can Afford’ initiative.
For every $200 donated on Parachute’s Givealittle page, one lucky family will be subsidised to attend the 2013 Festival.
Families selected for this awesome opportunity will only have to pay what they can afford, and coupled with funds raised Parachute will pick up the balance.
Parachute is urging its network of supporters and punters to get into the fundraising spirit and donate or set up their own Givealittle fundraising pages to support the cause.
