Dear LA Teacher,
In less than a month, on August 12, 2014 the 2014-2015 school year begins. Already, my middle school child is complaining. What can a mother do to make her child realize how lucky they are to get a decent education in our free and vibrant society?
Dear Perplexed Mom,
I strongly suggest you take your child to see the 5th Annual Vibha Vibe Dance and Music Extravaganza. Minal, the Master of Ceremonies and lead coordinator of Vibha Vibe 2014 says, “American children and teens are sheltered because our country is abundant in wealth and opportunity. Our children don’t understand that in most third world nations education is a privilege, one which most parents would be willing to die for in order for their child to have.”
The Vibha Vibe Dance Extravaganza is a multicultural presentation of music and dance from around the world. Vibha Vibe’s goal is to attract people, young and old, Hispanic, Anglo, Hindu, Black, Jewish or Muslim to support the education and shelter for underprivileged children worldwide. Their goal is for the public to support something greater than themselves and experience and rejoice the diversity of art in Los Angeles and Orange Counties.
The people at Vibha show the poverty of children in the Third World and their need for a decent education during the event. Minal says, “Videos are shown and we actually do a live Skype session with the children who live in the slum village we are supporting.” Your children can view first hand how fortunate they are for the opportunities they have right here in Southern California.
Minal says, “Education in America should be treated as an honor, not a burden because not all children are as blessed as we are. A child or teen attending this event will leave feeling humbled.” Children witnessing those videos and live scenes will understand how lucky they are to have the opportunity to learn, grow, and build their own lives in our free society.
Vibha Vibe 2014 showcases the talents of Los Angeles and Orange County’s finest artists, dancers, and singers. Minal says, “Each act is handpicked to provide a multicultural potpourri. Our audience will feel as though they have traveled the world in the few hours they are at Vibe.” This year's show will include Bollywood Fusion, The Golden Era Bollywood of the 60's, Salsa Merengue, African Dance, Belly Dancing, Odissi and Live Singing. The audience will learn something new about each country showcased while supporting a cause that provides a child education, shelter, and a chance at a real life.
Vibha organizes events, drives, and campaigns all over the Los Angeles area and creates awareness about childhood poverty as well as raise much needed funds to support grass root projects in India and US. It’s a grassroots movement that empowers volunteers or donors to make a positive difference in the life of an underprivileged child. The goal is to provide those children with a brighter future.
Vibha Vibe 2014 will be held on Saturday, August 23, 2014 from 5:30-8:00 PM at Brea Curtis Theater, Civic Center Circle, Brea, CA 92821. Pre-sale tickets are $25 and $30 at the door. For more information e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org or click on this link to purchase tickets.
