    Friday, July 18th, 2008

    Download the ZIMFEST 08 poster, print it, and stick it up somewhere. By doing this, you demonstrate your support for Zimbabwe.

    What can I do?

    If the phrase “what can I do…?” was uttered with less shoulder-shrugging, empowered South Africans may realise that it’s actually not rhetorical. It’s a question which demands creativity and motivation, and it’s the question that has led to the first ever fundraising music festival for Zimbabwe. You’re invited to Zimfest 2008. Download and print the poster!

    Overtone Music, a mobile events company presently based in Cape Town, is proud to present Zimfest. Zimfest is a charity fundraiser for the efforts of non-governmental organisations like PASSOP, who work closely with refugees and hands on with displaced asylum seekers. It’s our answer to the question, and through bringing some of the bigger names in South African music to the stage in the name of benefit, Overtone hopes to create awareness and social responsibility amongst South Africans.
