We have two three-day passes to WOMAD to give away

Okay Punditeers, we have two three-day passes to WOMAD (worth $458) sitting on the desk collecting dust. They could be yours, just comment on this post telling us why you want to go to WOMAD.

We are particularly keen to hear from Christchurch readers who could do with a treat.

WOMAD (World of Music and Dance) is in New Plymouth, March 18-20, at the Brooklands Bowl. We can't help you with travel or accommodation.

I would love to go to WOMAD and shed some light on an extremley devastating past two weeks. Music is a great way to uplift your soul and get in touch with happy emotions. I want to immerse myself at WOMAD, while enjoying the company of beautiful people and sounds that make the heart tingle again. If I won these tickets I'd take my mum along as she has been through a lot lately and I know she would love the WOMAD experience.

I would love to go to WOMAD as I went 3 years ago in the UK, mostly to see NZ band Kora, and had my eyes (and ears) opened to the delights of world music.  I'd take my civil union partner to belatedly celebrate our first anniversary - he double booked us on the real date.  He was born in the 'Naki and it'd be a treat for both of us to go.

I live in Christchurch, but have recently come to stay in New Plymouth (my home town) for a couple of weeks to escape from #eqnz and the situation in Christchurch.  I'm currently unable to work following the closure of the university (I'm a almost-finished PhD student and tutor both at The University of Canterbury and privately), so money is a bit short on the ground at the moment as I rely on this week-to-week work.  I'd love the chance to go to an event I've always wanted to attend but never had the time or money available for, in my beloved hometown, and to absorb some good energy before heading back down south.  I'd take my partner (who is also here from Christchurch), as he is in the same situation as I am in.

I'm one of the homeless (despite the user name).  But I'd give them to someone more homeless, or more needy

The other day I was chatting to a guy from Nelson, who picked up a hitchhiker who had just relocated his family to Nelson and was hitching back to retrieve gear from the house.  His 4 year-old had not spoken a word, for a week.  But I have no way of contacting these people.

I guess I'd try and contact the family of the 3-year old being counselled for anxiety from the Sept quake, when Feb 22 hit.  This was in the top floor of the CTV building, which they rode to the ground.

Otherwise I have friends who are homeless with two youngsters.  They were camping at the local primary school with 300 others, think are now in Welly.  She was driving past the Sumner RSA when the boulders came down.  His workplace in the CBD looks like something out of Dresden.

This is just what I would love to do, catch a flight with a friend and go to WOMAD!

Well, now that we're on our own I don't think it's that difficult to get there. I could use a little escape like that, I even have some unused vouchers on British Airways, this year I am definitely going for more fun.
