Bicoastally Speaking You Really Should Get Your Bitch On, Help End Human Trafficking, And Maybe Get Some Free Recycled Rice Bag Totes

Wednesday, August 19, 2009

Sure, I did forget to mention that you might also win an Adrian Tomine autographed copy of Shortcomings, but really - can that compare to a recycled rice bag tote?

I think not.

So if you're looking for somthing to do this Friday, support a good cause, and maybe win some cool free stuff - look no further and help celebrate the one year anniversary of the blog BicoastalBitchin through both a party and a fundraiser for the Nomi Network:

I just wanted to remind everyone that, your favorite Asian American blog, is throwing a fundraiser/party this Friday at EZ5 Bar on 684 Commercial between Kearny and Montgomery in the City of Saint Francis (Chinatown!). Party starts at 10pm, ends when the lights come up. Entry is free, and we're raffling tickets for $5 to win an AUTOGRAPHED copy of Adrian Tomine's opus on interracial dating/losers from Berkeley that moved to Brooklyn: Shortcomings.

All proceeds go to Nomi Network, a non-profit with a goal to end human-trafficking. To hear more about this NGO and its work in helping young girls steer clear from being a sex slave (in this case, Cambodia), check out this YouTube:

If you can't make it out, be sure to check out the Nomi website to buy a cool tote that can only be purchased at for $20 or at local boutiques in NYC for $25. The tote bag reads: "Buy Her Bag, Not Her Body".

Thanks, and hope to see y'all out there this Friday! And for those of you that asked for it, I'll bring the Vegemite and Tim Tams I brought back from Australia. You can take as many Vegemite/Tequila shots as you can handle.
