Haiti Benefit? Local Action!

Postby jbone1 » Mon Jan 18, 2010 5:56 am

i'm thinking about getting out the contacts list and seeing what kind of support i can drum up to do a benefit for victims of the recent earthquake. we did one after Katrina/Rita and did some good, and got some folks together in the bargain!

so are any of you considering tying your music into a positive activity like this?

things are coming together here. i have a venue and a date set. next is find bands and solo/duos to donate a set each, get a p.a., some items donated by businesses and individuals to auction off and give out as door prizes.

details so far are there.

this is an ongoing thing. a week or two will not make this go away. people are in trouble there and the aid organizations need money to send and set up field hospitals, shelters, bring in water and food, and save lives.

you'd be surprised how many folks are willing to help with a local benefit if someone takes the lead.
