Fundraiser Concert:

Help Wendy Get Back to Australia!

Online Event

Saturday, October 10, 2020 at 8:00 PM – 10:00 PM MDT


Hi folks. It’s Wendy here. I’m performing this special live streamed fundraiser concert to ask for your support.

I need to return to Australia ASAP because my Dad has been diagnosed with a very serious illness. Normally it would be no trouble for me to jump on a plane and be at his side within a day. But the pandemic has thrown everything into chaos. Not only do all arriving passengers into Australia have to go through a mandatory 14 day hotel quarantine (at a cost of $3000!!!), but the Aussie government has put a cap on the number of international arrivals. This means that airlines are bumping up their ticket prices and prioritising business class passengers to make up for the fact they can have so few passengers per flight. These extra expenses are even harder at the moment, when I’m not able to do live concerts in Melbourne, which usually help me cover the cost of my airfares.

So, I’m reaching out and asking my wonderful community for your support, and in return I’ll be performing this very special live streamed concert on Saturday October 10th at 8pm USA Mountain time, which translates to 1pm Australian Eastern Daylight time on Sunday October 11th.

I’ve set tickets with a super low minimum price of only $5 USD (which works out to only $7.50 or so in AUD), though higher contributions would be very much appreciated! For those generous folks who pay at least $20 for the concert ticket, my wonderful concert hosting service (called Online Concert Thing) will include a downloadable video recording of the concert, available a day or two after the live show.
Please note: Online Concert Thing’s system works in USD, but any conversion will be automatically taken care of by your credit card/bank/etc.

Also, a few kind folks have asked about donating directly to me, which would be a great help. If you’d like to do that, here’s the details of my Aussie bank account, and also Paypal and Venmo.

And here’s my Paypal.me address:
Paypal Email: wendy@

And don’t forget to message me if you choose any of these options so that I can thank you personally!!

If the timing for the live concert doesn’t suit you – I know it will be very early morning in the UK and Europe – you’ll be able to buy the concert video separately for $15. I will have lots of interesting ‘tip rewards’ available during the show, such as signed CDs, digital downloads, and postcards from Australia (which I can send when I’m finally out of quarantine!)

I’m so grateful to have such a kind and generous community. Your support will be a great help in keeping the music and Magic flowing.
