2. Karaoke for arrested elves THIS FRIDAY
In December last year, a troupe of merry Carbon Trading Elves celebrated an early Christmas with carbon trading profiteers, singing carols at corporate offices including Merrill Lynch and Macquarie Bank. Unfortunately our friends at the NSW police showed a distinct lack of holiday spirit, and now Holly, JP and Rachel are facing costly court cases.
What better way to support our carollers than to raise your voice in all its tuneless glory? Come along to our karaoke fundraiser, knock back some beers, and take on that torch song you’ve always sung in the shower…
