Positive Legacy has launched their “Winter Wishes Gift Drive” to support unemployed music community members and their families.
Since May, the non-profit organization has been launching initiatives to assist the live music community throughout the ongoing pandemic. In May, the organization pivoted from event fundraising to a solely online platform working with Cloud9 Adventures, releasing “Virtual Variety Shows” to raise money for live music industry crew members without work. In August, they launched their “Bid For Positive!” back-to-school online auction to support student success and low-income families and neighborhoods across the United States.
As the holiday season approaches, Positive Legacy is continuing their support for the live events industry and is now accepting gift wishes from unemployed music community members and their children. Once the wishes have been received, Positive Legacy will work throughout November up until Cyber Monday to assist in fulfilling the wishes.
“We are happy to continue supporting the music industry crew during this time as the winter will become more mentally and financially challenging for our community than the rest of the year has been,” Kristen Sommer-Swager, Executive Director of Positive Legacy said. “We are excited to provide a platform to spread joy and support our neighbors in need to ensure that the holidays bring smiles to children and families who wouldn’t have the income to otherwise purchase gifts. Please help us make this a reality, as giving to those in need is the greatest gift of all. ”
Any unemployed event crew members that are in need of support purchasing a gift for their child this holiday season can submit a gift wish until Friday, November 6th here. Anyone interested in helping to make wishes come true can peruse the gift registry starting November 9th to select and purchase a gift here.
