Oceanside CA– The Soiree on the Strand: Make Change is where the North County Community can find ways to put hope into action and to enact lasting change. There will be ways to connect to local, international and environmental non profits that are living this change in their work. Seeing homeless and women in crisis locally, we have the Interfaith organization. The news of children living in poverty,refugees, or lack of peace can be helped through World Vision, ONE, Ssubi or Plant with Purpose. Wave Rhythm educates people on how we can keep our ocean and surroundings pristine.
“We started this event six years ago because the news in the world is so negative. War; children being the innocent victims, Syrian refugee camps, poverty. It seems there is no hope, but this event offers hope.” said Viki Casper.
If just shopping could make change, come shop our world artisan market where all purchases directly better the lives of the products creators. The market will have beautiful purses from Chikimbuso of Zambia (a women and orphans project), Dolls from the Bali Street Orphanage, scarves from recycled saris made by Indian rejected widows of the White Rainbow Project, products from Uganda by Ssubi and many other beautiful crafts.
Enjoy the day while listening to Reggae music by local band Upfull Rising and Mediterranean songstress Yael.
The event will be child friendly with our booth Insects and Art where kids can explore the lives of insects and their effect on the environment while they are getting fabulous face painting. Stratford on the Harbor will be providing the scrumptious food.
The event is absolutely FREE, July 20 at Seagaze Park on the Oceanside Strand from 2-5 p.m. (105 The Strand South, Oceanside, 92054).
