‘Aid for Afghanistan’
Live Jazz, Canapés, Silent Auction

Tasmanians join together to support Afghani victims of war
On Saturday October 23rd at the Moonah Arts Centre from 6pm – 10pm, local
woman Katie Kingshott and her family are raising money for the people of
Afghanistan. In addition to live jazz, food and local beverages, there is a silent
auction with many amazing local products, art work and experiences to bid on.
All proceeds raised go directly to the UNHCR in Afghanistan.
Since the start of the year, nearly 600,000 Afghans have been newly displaced
inside the country due to insecurity, violence and serious human rights issues,
with families being forced to flee for their lives. Especially concerning is the
impact of the conflict on women and girls. Some 80 per cent of those displaced
since the end of May are women and children. UNHCR is well prepared to stay
and deliver humanitarian assistance and support to the Afghan people in a
complex, dynamic and challenging security environment.
For the busy midwife and mother of two small children; Katie says that
organising this event has been a labour of love.
“When I saw images of Afghani women passing their babies to soldiers in an
attempt to get them out of the country, I felt despair. I couldn’t imagine how
horrific a circumstance must be to place your precious child in the hands of a
stranger. Then something in me clicked into action. I realised that I could do
something positive for people in Afghanistan and together with my family, we
started to organise Aid for Afghanistan. Local Tasmanian businesses have been
incredibly generous by donating items for the silent auction. It’s so important to
realise we can be powerful agents for change and we can provide assistance to
people in desperate circumstances”
The Kingshott’s are encouraging all members of the wider Hobart community to
come along on the night and bid on items to raise funds for this extremely
important cause – all the while having a great night out!
$25 ticket entry can be purchased

Christmas Day

Date: December 25, 2021

Christmas Day is an annual festival commemorating the birth of Jesus Christ, observed most commonly on December 25 as a religious and cultural celebration among billions of people around the world.A feast central to the Christian liturgical year, it is preceded by the season of Advent or the Nativity Fast and initiates the season of Christmastide, which historically in the West lasts twelve days and culminates on Twelfth Night; in some traditions, Christmastide includes an Octave. Christmas Day is a public holiday in many of the world’s nations, is celebrated religiously by a majority of Christians, as well as culturally by many non-Christians, and forms an integral part of the holiday season. In several countries, celebrating Christmas Eve has the main focus rather than Christmas Day.

Although the month and date of Jesus’ birth are unknown, by the early-to-mid fourth century the Western Christian Church had placed Christmas on December 25, a date that was later adopted in the East. Today, most Christians celebrate on December 25 in the Gregorian calendar, which has been adopted almost universally in the civil calendars used in countries throughout the world. However, some Eastern Christian Churches celebrate Christmas on December 25 of the older Julian calendar, which currently corresponds to January 7 in the Gregorian calendar, the day after the Western Christian Church celebrates the Epiphany
