THE EDUCATION SUPPLIES RECYCLING PROJECT ESTABLISHED BY THE ARTIST 'CHI'....
The artist 'Chi' has been busy collecting donated school books and supplies to be recycled and passed on to schools in developing countries that urgently need books and education supplies for their students. We are all witnessing the current ongoing tensions on the beautiful island of Jamaica Underpinning such tensions are complex issues such as poverty and illiteracy.
One such school that needs our aid and assistance is Watsontown Basic SchooL in Dumfries, St. James, Jamaica. Chi has so far collected several hundred quality school books. Working alongside Deborah Friedman from the radio station Irie Vibes Radio Station, Detroit, US; they desperately need to raise funds for the shipping of the books direct from the United Kingdom to Jamaica. A shipping firm has already been assigned and the books are packed up and ready to go. This school is just one of many that urgently need our help... We are appealing to our colleagues, friends, contacts and the Urban Unique membership to please assist with the costs of the shipment by contacting and sending any amount of donation/s NO MATTER HOW SMALL @:
