We are thrilled to introduce our GoFundMe campaign, dedicated to supporting young Asian artists and performers at the Lao New Year event at Wat Lao SLC. Our mission is to provide a platform for individuals between the ages of 5 and 18 to connect with their heritage, express themselves through art, and foster intercultural connections.
Lao New Year is a vibrant celebration that embraces the rich traditions of Lao culture, and is an opportunity to showcase the diversity of the Asian diaspora at large. However, many young artists within our communities lack the necessary resources to fully participate in these meaningful experiences. Our goal is to bridge this gap and give these talented individuals an opportunity to shine.
The funds raised will directly benefit pageant contestants and performers, helping them overcome financial barriers to their involvement. By supporting these young artists, we can inspire and empower them to become ambassadors of their cultures, promoting understanding and appreciation for the diverse Asian diaspora.
Thank you for your generosity and for being a part of this incredible endeavor!
