Any hardcore music fans in my friends and industry network? Or simply a caring eventsprof and/or traveller? This could be for you!
I’d like to auction/sell a very special book for a worthy cause. ‘Keep on Running – The Story of Island Records’. It is in pristine, mint condition. A beautiful hardback coffee table book I’d be happy to sell for a good cause …. to benefit its place of origin. Plus promote a new initiative!
Here comes the story …
This was a room gift on a client incentive many years ago whilst at the legendary Jamaican hideaway GoldenEye. Of course, the organiser got one!
GoldenEye, the former home of Ian Fleming, where all the Bond novels were written, is now owned by Island Records founder Chris Blackwell. Now a stunning boutique hotel and resort which we took over exclusively for an event.
The book is signed by the music industry legend Chris Blackwell himself with ‘One Love’, signed especially for our visit.
Many of the celebrity guests from Beyoncé, Adele, Sting (he wrote Every Breath you Take at GoldenEye) and occasional corporate client, would typically plant a tree with a donation to The Oracabessa Foundation.
The Foundation, created by GoldenEye, was launched in 1995 to be a catalyst for the sustainable development of Oracabessa and its environment. The goal of the Oracabessa Fish Sanctuary is to protect and restore Oracabessa Bay’s natural resources while serving as a catalyst to ensure the sustainable livelihoods of the families that depend on the Bay for their income.
So to help promote The Greenprint Series, and hopefully encourage industry members, whether a planner or supplier, to support the initiative, I’m selling the book and 100% proceeds will be donated to The Oracabessa Foundation. The very place where we enjoyed an incentive, planted a tree and purchased the book!
So, if you plan events, love travel and are a mindful, conscious event organiser, please support and join me on a new initiative to be launched in the near future.
Let’s support, celebrate and recognise contributors in exciting, creative and unique sustainable travel and event ideas, around the world, for when we’re back planning events post-COVID.
