December 2011 - Patrick Chamusso visits Tokyo and a series of events and activities takes place in support of Two Sisters. Dancing4Kids collaborates with Drum Cafe Japan in a special event to support South Africa and Japan.
"Smile one beat at a time" Event: Tuesday December 20th 2011
We are very pleased to announce that our last event was a great success!! Many of our friends who joined us gave us the most wonderful feedback and encouraged us to continue to do more! Apart from the amazing entertainment and interactive drumming, we were able to raise JPY130,000 for the 2 projects we supported. An extra JPY40,000 was handed out in support of Two Sisters AIDS centre in South Africa so a total of JPY100,000 was given to Patrick Chamusso (founder of Two Sisters) who attended our event as our very special guest. The Niko Niko Smile project received JPY 65,000 and this year we hope to work closer with Drum Cafe Japan and support Japan through this wonderful project. Photographs from this event are coming soon!
