HELP RAISE 30.000€ for January 2018

Dear vaisnavas,

I would like to thank from the depth of my heart all the many devotees that contributed to the 2017 event. We managed to collect just over 13.000€ which tremendously helped the festival. The remaining 17.000€ was just about collected through the sales of CDS, shirts and with the temple’s kind support. In fact, Krsna so kindly arranged that we finished once more with a positive figure, this time of around 500€, which will be used as base for the next year’s event. My vision and desire for 2018 is to continue to have the majority of the festival sponsored (prasadam and all costs for organising the festival) as the 2012–2017 Mellows were concluded in a positive way.

By rough estimation this would mean that we would require to collect over 6000€ for prasadam bhoga so that devotees can eat for free, 700€ for the heating of the tent, + 2500€ for 10.000 first class biodegradable plates,cups, bowls and spoons. In fact and while we are at it; between the sound system, the album production, staff and special guests travel costs etc… We have an additional +20.000€ that are required to cover the full organisational costs of the free Radhadesh Mellows festival. More details are provided below.

As always we depend on the generosity of all of you supporting our festival to make this happen. Even a euro makes a difference… So please donate for an even better and more memorable festival in 2018 (I don’t know how its becoming possible as the festivals are already so ecstatic)! You can do so by Paypal or by personal arrangement with Manu ( you can email me through the contact form of the website), or by donating directly to our festival account:
