We Are Family with TWB Fundraiser

On the 23rd of April, Ludejo will organise their 6th annual fundraiser for Translators with Borders, “We Are Family with TWB”. These fundraisers have firmly established themselves as an integral part of the social activities during the Globalization and Localization Association annual conference. To date we have raised almost €29,000 with the help and support of the localization community.

A fundraiser infused with a distinctly retro vibe

This year’s fundraiser has a distinctly groovy flavour; the 1970s. We’re bringing back flares, flower power and disco funk. DJ Celebrity PoolParty (Gene Schriver) will be on the decks to spin all the hits from the era, ensuring a night of retro fun and dancing under the glittering disco ball! 

Groovy Giveaways

Are you willing to sponsor a prize for a “Groovy Giveaways” raffle? We would love to have a selection of prizes to raffle off – and award to the best 1970s themed outfit! If you are able to help out, please give Andrew a shout (andrew@ludejo.eu)!

Something silly for something sublime 

The Ludejo fundraisers for TWB have always had a touch of playfulness, reminding us to embrace a bit of lightheartedness even as we support the vital work of an organisation that makes a profound difference worldwide.

We gotta let love rule

“Don’t we all want peace on earth?

Don’t we all need colourful flowers, with their strong will to live after the dark winter?

Don’t we all wish the best for our families, our friends, our neighbours, our colleagues?

Don’t we all long for a bright future?

We gotta let love rule.”

– Malon Hamoen

Why do we support TWB?

TWB’s objective is to address language disparities that impede crucial humanitarian efforts. They aim to accomplish this by facilitating collaboration between non-profit humanitarian entities and a volunteer community of translators. Ludejo is proud to be able to support TWB in any way we can.

Malon explains: “I believe – and my team wholly endorses this – in giving. Also, or maybe especially, in hard times. When you give, something keeps flowing. Giving fosters trust in a hopeful future for everyone. Ludejo is the company that I established on a foundation of love. We are grateful that we are able to provide CLEAR Global with financial support. We will keep supporting CLEAR Global with our time and our talents.”

A community effort

As always, this fundraiser “We Are Family with TWB” could not happen without the support and buy-in from so many people. Massive thank you to Valeria Vicens Ramires and the team at Montero Language Services for helping us find a great location! I can’t wait to have a beer with you in Valencia!
