In this podcast our co-founder Jeremi’s has another chat on JOY with David and Sue about how the Echo organisation works with displaced refugees on the Thai-Burma border. Now that our major fundraiser event is over for another year, you can still donate (yes, it’s tax deductible) towards the construction and fit-out of a new library for children. You can read the full story here and we thank JOY for their continued support.
The music was pumping, the drinks were flowing and the money just kept rolling in, $10,628 to be precise! A great night was had by all at the Old Melbourne Gaol, although by the look of this video, our resident Snapchatter @fredporter was having the most fun of all! Watch all the highlights of the big night right here, enjoy!
Echo International Aid’s first pop up bar fundraiser at the Old Melbourne Gaol has proven to be a complete success -$10,628 raised for building and development projects on the Thai Burma border!

If you can’t join us in person at our very first Annual Appeal Pop Up Bar at the Old Melbourne Gaol on Friday 22nd July, you can get to know us better on Snapchat. Our digital (and Snapchat) expert @fredporter will be snapping all the fun of our innovative social enterprise event from setup to pack-down, talking to the team and our supporters who are helping raise money for meaningful international aid projects.
