We’ve been very busy here in Africa, from Lesotho to Botswana and Angola. Along the way, I’ve been fortunate to realize my current life’s calling – using music to encourage conservation in developing countries!
Together, myself and many talented players from Lesotho, Botswana, and Angola are collaborating to write inspiring and educational conservation music. Through the radio airwaves, we are able teach these lessons to everyone, regardless of their reading ability, or how distant they may live from urban centers. Our videos will be given to local TV stations and promoted online for those with a little more access!
As I write this, an official non-profit organization is being registered in Virginia. I’m taking what began as a dream and creating a reality, with hopes of empowering musicians, improving our relationship with Earth, and inspiring anyone who comes across our story.
I’m proud to say I’ve managed to self-fund the evolution of this effort for a year now, since leaving last April. Now, for my second consecutive birthday on the African continent, I’m reaching out for help with my first fundraiser ever! It’s an online “crowdfunding” campaign at Generosity.com.
So, if you believe in what we are doing, there are a few ways to help out!
1. Donate – The fundraiser is open! Everything helps. Even small donations have a big impact out here! https://igg.me/at/TzZiOMoqSFk
2. Share on Facebook – The more people who hear about us, the more likely we are to meet our target.
2a. You can also share to Twitter!
3. Share with your community – Call your friends, talk to your family, tell your co-workers, make an announcement at your organization’s event… help spread the word!
Thanks so much for reading, and if you choose to get involved, thank you SO MUCH for your help! Let me know if you have any feedback or questions, I would love to hear back from you!
