Music Beats Mines is your creative chance to raise funds for landmine clearance and education in some of the world's poorest communities.
Every day, 10 people are killed or suffer horrific injuries because of landmines and other explosive weapons. These weapons are indiscriminate killers during and after conflict. They don't obey ceasefire agreements.
Your Music Beats Mines efforts will help MAG to make land and lives safe. MAG reduces the daily risk of death or injury for civilians, and creates safe and secure conditions for development.
Organise an event
Music Beats Mines events are your call. It could be big or small. If it's a gig, then anything goes... spoken word, classical, thrash metal, you name it. Or how about a club night, quiz or buskathon?
You decide what to put on, where to hold it and how to arrange it.
The great thing is that you don't have to be an events expert to get involved – in fact, MBM is a great way to get experience in events organising.
AND there's no minimum amount you'll be expected to raise (though obviously the more the better!)
We’ll provide you with materials, inspiration and support. Download the Music Beats Mines fundraising kit for useful tips and advice.
Best of all, the money you raise will help save lives and build futures in conflict-affected communities, helping ensure that the extraordinarily tragic story of twins Dana and Zana becomes a thing of the past.
We would love you to get involved with Music Beats Mines, so for any further information please give Sally a call on 0161 2364311 or email email@example.com
