We’re still in disbelief that with your support, we hit our funding goal within the first 48 hours with a mere 300 backers! To all of you that are backing our indiegogo campaign to support MusiCares and The Brave of Heart Fund – Thank you!
I also wanted to thank all of you out there who’ve supported my other efforts throughout the crises we faced this year (and still facing). With your support of our Arts, Hearts + Philanthropy initiative, we convened extraordinary minds like Jane Elliot for racial and social justice on Music & Activism, and on #Emerge, we brought inspiration and tools for successfully navigating the pandemic to thousands of people with Mark Victor Hansen (Author, Chicken Soup for the Soul) and raised money for GetUsPPE.org that gets personal protective equipment to our frontline healthcare workers fighting COVID-19.
As we move into the last few months of 2020, I’m hoping that together we can bring a little holiday cheer and continue the momentum of our indiegogo campaign in support of people that have been severely affected by the pandemic.
Why? Because It’s Christmas
In my work with the UN’s initiative for the Sustainable Development Goals, I’ve reunited with 17 cast members of the 90’s Mickey Mouse Club to Executive Produce a very special album of holiday classics in partnership with MusiCares– a charity founded by the Recording Academy that supports music people in times of need, and The Brave of Heart Fund that financially supports the families of healthcare workers who’ve died fighting COVID-19.
The Mouseketeers haven’t collaborated in this many numbers on anything this grand in scale in almost 30 years. But it’s more than a fun reunion project for us, it’s become a passion of ours in reuniting for the families of healthcare workers and in support of our brothers and sisters in the music business – some of the hardest hit during this pandemic.
The album is dropping November 27th (Black Friday) through Universal Music Group with a portion of sales benefitting these extraordinary organizations. You can pre-order the commemorative CD and/or digital download, and find out more about our work to make the world a bit better at www.MMC89Initiative.com.
But here’s where we could REALLY use your help:
ICYMI, we launched an indiegogo campaign to help us spread the word about the album. And although we’ve already reached our funding goal, your support is still needed to help us enroll as many new backers as possible by September 30th… because the more ‘backers’ we have the more eyeballs on the project, and the more money and awareness raised for our charitable partners. Even a $5 contribution helps and a $10 contribution gets a backer 70% off the album.
Please consider getting involved at whatever level you can. If you can’t contribute, please spread the word… Why? Because it’s Christmas! 😉
