Room Service International is a for-purpose, community-action organization deeply rooted in travel, philanthropy and sound. By definition, Room Service is the ultimate give-back via our endeavors in events & club culture, travel, photography and the arts. The organization’s manifesto is simple: live a life of service. We aim to be a humanitarian platform by helping to spread awareness on important issues from underserved regions all over the world and by activating community service projects that bring tangible change within these communities.
Southeast Asia Tour 2018
Indonesia, Malaysia, Vietnam, Philippines, Thailand
Room Service International will embark on its first music and humanitarian tour this upcoming November 21st - December 23, 2018, performing for over 5,000 music lovers and participating in various cultural and social experiences, conducting intimate interviews, as well as activating highly impactful community service efforts in each of the destinations. After successfully executing Room Service's first major community initiative in Manila, Philippines in May 2018 - a feeding program for 300 children and sponsoring academic scholarships for 3 children - we confidently knew it was time to expand and further serve the Southeast Asian community.
The goal of the upcoming tour is to program music and DJ in various nightclubs, while working together with local community members, promoters/venues, friends and family to raise awareness and physically activate these initiatives in their respective communities. Conducting intimate interviews and engaging in cultural experiences, creating feeding programs, constructing shelter homes, rehabilitating and beautifying schools, providing academic scholarships, plus health and arts enrichment and education are amongst the main initiatives, enabling Room Service to connect the world with the people of Southeast Asia and shed light on the wonders and symmetry between travel, art and service.
But we need your help!
The campaign has launched a bit late due to unforeseen issues and show cancellations out of our control and we'll be landing in Jakarta, our first destination, this week - November 21st. We are still very confident and extremely humbled that our community has been reaching out to contribute and donate however they can and we thank you so much in advance for all of your support.
Because the tour is about to be underway and fully confirmed, we hope to raise as much of our goal as possible within the next 14 days.
All show fees, sponsorship and fundraising will assist in partial tour expenses, but more importantly, enable Room Service to engage in these various projects and fully activate the community service initiatives in each of the destinations. Our passion, and responsibility, is bridging our lifelong careers with service; providing social enrichment and nourishment to the soul and body, and brining education and music and the arts to the forefront in these respective areas of Southeast Asia.
Here is a brief overview of how funding will be utilized:
- Feeding programs for the hungry, primarily children, in Indonesia, Malaysia, Vietnam, Philippines and Thailand
- Youth resource and crisis center rehabilitation i.e. tools and supplies for beautifying centers in Indonesia and Malaysia
- Academic scholarships for the youth in Malaysia, Philippines and Thailand
- "Mid-Phase Assistance" for the homeless and displaced in Indonesia (Lombak, Bali) via the purchasing and construction of temporary housing units
- Room Service tour expenses i.e. lodging and travel to areas needing assistance; the tour will be aiding and traveling to the following destinations: Jakarta, Bali, Kuala Lumpur, Nha Trang, Ho Chi Minh City, Bangkok and Manila.
- Minimal supplies for producing filming/ documentary case study
We truly hope and wish you can be a part of our journey and the betterment of those we are serving. And we're extremely grateful that you've read this far into our campaign to learn more about our mission to help those in need through the power of music and community. Every bit helps and we can't wait to show you the magic of your donation through frequent video recaps, our upcoming closing mini-documentary and end of tour case study / reports.
We understand this is quite a lot of activity in such a short amount of time - in addition to performing shows and raising funds and awareness in each of the cities, and that we're approaching a very mentally, physically and emotionally challenging, yet powerful next 4 weeks, but we're extremely honored to get the support of all the promoters/venues, local organizations, media partners and sponsors for collaborating with Room Service to help make this impact possible.
We look forward to gaining your support!
