12for12k Music as Medicine Tour – London

by Mark Lovett on September 19, 2009

I had an amazing time on the Music as Medicine tour benefiting Doctors Without Borders. After the kickoff event in San Diego on September 3rd, the series moved on to Stockholm for a second concert on September 9th. The third event occurred in London on September 15th at Kettner’s in Soho and was produced by the Leap Anywhere team.

Featured on Leap Anywhere TV, the clip above highlights the purpose of the event, the selfless work of Doctors Without Borders and the reaction of guests who attended in support of this international humanitarian group – they all had a good time while doing good!

Global Patriot is very proud to work with 12for12k in support of this dedicated organization, and our deepest thanks go out to Malcolm Scovil and his crew at Leap Anywhere for the work they did to make this event such a success!

I was so lucky to be able to attend San Diego AND London. Talk about coincidental travel plans! Great way to raise money. No reason that we can’t have fun while raising funds. Thanks so much for spreading the Doctors Without Borders story, Mark!

Awesome stuff, Mark, simply awesome. What you’ve been doing these last few weeks (and in the weeks and months leading up to this) has just been awe-inspiring and I’m both honoured and privileged to know you.

Salut!
