Today is the day ... YAY!!! Today is the Concert Day. It's time to celebrate peace!!
I'm so excited that we are coming together in unity to inspire peace and support those that support other's in need.
Beautiful little Dexter is such a shining star and inspiration. It is an honour to be donating the funds from this concert to help Dexter and to support the beautiful community groups The Music Makers and the Peace Angels.
We're going to have a MAGICAL night thanks to our wonderful performers Anandanetti, Peace Angels, Cinnamon Twist School of Belly Dance, The Music Makers stars of Creative Performance Evening By Those With A Disability, Gayatri K and Rob Sampson.
See you tonight very EXCITED!
Buy tickets at the door from 6pm or online at www.wollongongtownhall.com.au
We got to meet a couple of the Cinnamon Twist ladies, and they were so lovely.
We still can't believe that performers who have never met Dexter have asked to perform for him. We are so grateful, even if a little over-whelmed by the support.
We hope all performers have a fun night! Thank you all!
We are so impressed that performers are coming all the way from Sydney! Thanks!
We are excited about Melissa singing a song and dedicating it to Dexter. We know there are photos of Dexter that will be used tonight, so you will all get to 'see' him, even though, by that time.... hopefully, he will be asleep (thought Dexter does hate to fall asleep!)
Dexter's grandparents will be there, sitting among everyone and we thank them for representing Dexter.
Sadly, before we knew about the concert, we had registered to attend a Camp Quality camp. We'd only been on one camp, and had felt so relaxed and happy there, that we quickly registered for this one. So, neither Dexter or his parents will be there tonight. Our thoughts will be with you all, though!
Sometimes, we forget just how incredible Dexter's story is... its our every day, every hour, every minute... and then, a concert comes along, or someone we have never met makes an amazing gesture, and we remember just how much harder our cheeky little boy has to fight and battle. We are learning to be as determined as him, and we are loving the laughs he gives us every day now! (We used to go months between laughs!)
Jane... Melissa... everyone involved with organising tonight...
Thank you! Good luck! xxx
If you don't know Dexter's story yet... it is really incredible, and worth a read.
