Conscious Alliance, the Boulder, CO-based nonprofit, will kick off its annual Membership Drive at Live For Live Music‘s inaugural The Big Melt, an exciting new multi-band concert event set to take place this Saturday, April 13th at Denver’s Fillmore Auditorium.

Kicking the drive off with top musicians stays true to the nonprofit’s mantra and history of “Art That Feeds.” The event will feature super groups comprised of members of The String Cheese Incident, Lettuce, Big Gigantic, Thievery Corporation, Brazilian GirlsBreak ScienceGhost-Note, Pretty Lights Live Band, and more as well as the “Purple Party,” a tribute to Prince with members of Snarky Puppy and The Motet. Tickets to The Big Melt are $43 for general admission and $120 for VIP and may be purchased here.

Artist Nic Bogdal of Oddline Designs has created a commemorative poster for The Big Melt that will be available for those who donate food or funds to Conscious Alliance’s drive at the event. Additionally, Live Nation will donate $1 to Conscious Alliance for every ticket sold and to match up to 10 memberships secured that night. You can take a sneak peek at Conscious Alliance’s The Big Melt poster below:

The Conscious Alliance Membership Drive, which runs through April 30th, features three incentive levels: Those who donate $10 per month will receive a membership poster, $20 per month will be thanked with a Conscious Alliance branded water bottle, and those who donate $30 per month will receive a Black Diamond backpack. As always, members also receive exclusive offers on art and event tickets. Attending the Big Melt event is not necessary to become a Conscious Alliance member, however—anyone is able to sign up via the organization’s website here.

“Conscious Alliance members are crucial in our mission to end childhood hunger,” says Executive Director Justin Levy. “One in every six American children don’t know when they’ll get their next meal. Every $1 donated provides two meals for those in need, which means just $30 a month can have a huge impact.”

Since January, Conscious Alliance’s 242 members have donated more than $15,000, helping deliver upwards of 30,000 meals to underserved areas of the country. These numbers speak to the nonprofit’s continued growth since it’s founding in 2002. Last year was Conscious Alliance’s most successful year to date, with more than 700,000 meals—$1.9 million worth of food—distributed to children and families who need it the most across the country.

This growth was made possible in large part by the inclusion of semi-trucks full of food donated by food brands in Conscious Alliance’s distribution methodology, as well as the ongoing support of members, artists, bands, festivals, and individual donors. Last year, Conscious Alliance hosted 112 ‘Art That Feeds’ Food Drives in 19 different states at festivals and concerts nationwide.

“For Conscious Alliance, the work of getting healthy food to communities in need never ends,” says Levy. “2018 was a record-breaking year for us, but we need to surpass that in 2019—the larger our impact, the more people we can support.”

Events like The Big Melt allow Conscious Alliance meet potential donors where they are and make giving fun. By launching its annual Membership Drive at a one-of-a-kind musical event, Conscious Alliance hopes to raise awareness by being a part of concertgoers’ lasting memories. When folks hang a Conscious Alliance poster in their home or continue to donate monthly, they remain an integral part of the nonprofit’s mission.
