Tight-Knit Syria Presents: Project Shatila Night
Tight Knit Syria is an amazing organization that provides yarn and knitting materials for Syrian refugee women to knit items for themselves and their families in the camp as well as create unique items to sell on the Canadian and international market as a source of income.
Tight Knit Syria works with 3 different camps (Atmeh, Syria/ Zataari, Jordan/ Amman, Jordan) and has just expanded to include the Shatila Refugee camp in Beirut, Lebanon.
A recently played at their fund-raiser to end of their “Indie Gogo campaign” (a website to raise funds) for these women in Shatila.
( If you would like me to DJ your non-profit organization’s event please email email@example.com )
The event took place at Studio 89 in Mississauga which is a really cute cafe that serves fair-trade organic coffee and products. They help several organizations, serve as a community hub and have a youth-lead non-profit organization which helps people, animals and the planet! It’s a really nice environment where you can do work or play board games with friends.
