On Friday May 31st, Greenpop will be partnering with STM Live and Pangolin Entertainment to host its 5th ‘Cool As Folk’ tree fundraiser concert and this time around, the event will be coming to Jozi for the first time!
‘Cool as Folk’ is a kinetic, rhythmic event aiming to showcase a range of music from up-and-coming African artists, headlined by Jeremy Loops and Co. The event will bring together a diverse mix of individuals who not only appreciate great music who have caught the Greenpop tree bug.
This event aims to fundraise for Greenpop’s Trees for Zambia Ecoeducation and Reforestation Conference of Action event, which is happening from the 7th to 28 July this year in Livingstone, Zambia. During this time, about 100 international people and 100 Zambians come together to plant 5000 trees, spread environmental education, make solar cookers, contribute to greening Livingstone and have a lot of fun too.
Greenpop aims to attract potential tree-planting supporters who could financially contribute to the project by donating trees (either by adding a tree to their Cool as Folk ticket or gifting a tree at the event) and/or would be interested in attending the Action Event to plant trees through this site.
About Cool As Folk:
The music event will take place at STM Live on May 31st, 2013 from 7:00pm to 2:00am.
