Last night was awesome and we can’t thank Edison Chair and Neulore enough for giving incredible sets last night. We took some video footage and are going to be cutting together a video recap of the night, which will be up on the blog later, but we wanted to get some pictures up as soon as possible.
Again, thank you so much to the bands and those who came out. It was a great way to kick off our summer series and we’re really excited about the possibilities in the future. We have some big ideas for shows coming up throughout the summer so be sure to stay tuned here, on our Facebook (https://www.facebook.com/austin.streetteam.7), on Twitter (@Kony2012Austin) or on Instagram (ATXStreetTeam).
One of the biggest challenges Mend faces is maintaining a consistent energy supply to power our 25 electric sewing machines and other equipment. The power in northern Uganda can be unpredictable so having a generator is a necessity! As we have expanded over the past year, adding 10 new seamstresses and new systems, we have outgrown our small generator.
So today was an exciting day at Mend as we received a brand new, super powerful generator! Look out for lots more bags coming your way soon!
