The fundraising platform Fandiem has joined forces with Bandsintown to raise money and awareness for a variety of nonprofit partners. Their latest campaign, “F-COVID,” will benefit the Sweet Relief Musicians Fund and gives fans an opportunity to win a variety of unique prizes from artists like Metallica, Eric Church, Nine Inch Nails, Jason Isbell, and many more.
“We are thrilled to partner with Bandsintown to inspire artist and fan communities to support urgent causes,” says Fandiem’s Co-Founder Jared Heiman in a press release. “With the industry feeling the effects of another surge, the time is right to launch “F-Covid” and support Sweet Relief Musicians Fund. This campaign is our collective effort to help musicians and music industry workers whose livelihoods continue to be impacted.”
“At Bandsintown, we believe that live music makes a better world by bringing fans together in one of the last tribal experiences. With Bandsintown For Good, we turn this love for live music into social impact,” adds Fabrice Sergent, managing partner of Bandsintown. “With Fandiem, we’re making it easier and more rewarding for fans to give back and deepen their connections with the artists they love. We’re proud to join forces, fundraise and align our ethos around the ways we can use technology in service to society.”
Those who donate to the F-COVID campaign can enter to win prizes like a VIP trip to see Eric Church in concert plus autographed vinyl records, a one-of-a-kind guitar signed by Nine Inch Nails that the band smashed on stage in Brisbane, Australia, tickets to Metallica’s sold-out show in Las Vegas, and dozens more. All proceeds will benefit the Sweet Relief Musicians Fund and its goal of providing financial assistance to all types of career musicians and music industry workers who are struggling to make ends meet while facing physical or mental health issues, disability, or age-related problems.
In March of 2020, Sweet Relief launched a COVID-19 Fund with a limited amount of funds available to be used specifically for musicians and music industry workers impacted by Coronavirus. Funds raised have paid for medical expenses, lodging, clothing, food, and other vital living expenses for those impacted due to sickness or loss of work.
“Our community is still in a state of emergency,” says Aric Steinberg, Sweet Relief Musicians Fund EVP. “Sweet Relief is here to help, and we’re grateful to partners like Fandiem and Bandsintown who are willing and able to provide a platform for our supporting artists to raise funds for those in need.”
