Here’s another reason why we should support Original Pinoy Music (OPM) and our local musicians and artists – because they are always willing to lend a hand and support causes.
My friend Ryan Mostar, whom I have been close friends with since we were thirteen is giving his kidney to his sister Kanji, who has been diagnosed in 2006 with IgA nephropathy, also called Berger’s Syndrome, an autoimmune disease that occurs when IgA-a protein that helps the body fight infections settles in the kidneys causing scarring and inflammation and eventually progresses into kidney failure.
For the past six years, Kanji Mostar has been undergoing medication but her kidneys are now only functioning at 12% and a kidney transplant is needed. This November 2012, Kanji will be taking a series of tests, together with her brother, in preparation for the kidney transplant operation. The cost of the transplant operation is far beyond what the family can handle alone and is asking for support in the Raise to 1M Drive. Our involvement, may it be financial, medical, spiritual, will certainly help improve the struggle Kanji is fighting, not just to survive, but live.
I went to my friends and asked them how we could help – and this is how we are trying.
We are organizing a series of fundraising gigs in the hope that it will be able to help in the Raise to 1M Drive. There will be one at Amos Cafe, Anonas QC on Dec 7, as well as on Dec 11 at B-Side, The Collective, Makati. Do support by spreading the word and by coming to the gigs.
Here is the Kidney for Kanji Facebook page for more info: The Official Page of the 1M Drive for Kanji’s Kidney Transplant.
Watch a gig for a cause. Come to B-Side on December 11 and help raise 1M for Kanji’s kidney transplant.

When you find yourself going to more and more gigs, you find yourself having more and more music lover friends. And so that is how I found myself at B-Side last Saturday night for Gig.Ph’s 2nd anniversary with friends I made at Freedom Bar, the members of Electric Princess and MY neighbor, Sid.

GIG.PH is the best online source for today’s hottest gigs in the Philippines. For inquiries, please e-mail us at email@example.com. and for bands firstname.lastname@example.org Get listed –> http://www.gig.ph/category/events Follow us! http://www.twitter.com/gigdotph
GIG.PH was formed by four individuals who share the same passion for music in July 23, 2010. Realizing the need for one place that would serve as an all-in-one package when it comes to providing all the information on the latest gigs, concerts, bands, local productions and the best bars for hosting events, they conceptualized Gig.ph.
The website aims to advertise local productions and their gigs while helping artists promote their music and talent. In line with this, Gig.ph would like to showcase the bars around the metro that are considered the best when looking for a place to host an event, as well as the small-time bars that seem to be a perfect fit for hosting gigs.
Most importantly, GIG.PH aims to build friendship and camaraderie within the industry through one advocacy: Filipino Music.
