Because there’s something unique about artists and musicians. Yes, there’s vanity and narcissism but then again, who amongst us aren’t vain and narcissistic?
Hear this: No one gets a free pass so we’ll be sharing ways that everyone can join the movement of One Day’s Wages! But one of our strategies we’re sharing today is to partner with artists and musicians from all around the world that are interested in using their voices and platform to partner with ODW and our movement towards ending extreme global poverty.
We’ve just started this initiative and we’re pleased to announce our first partners including Seattle’s very own Rocky Votolato. If you’re an artist/musician, click on the image below to learn more about what the partnerships can look like. And PLEASE forward this to bands, friends, artists, your favs…for their consideration.
But here’s my question and your help is important:
The ethos of ODW isn’t to attract billionaires or the U2s of the world because we simply don’t roll with the bigshots – although I won’t say no if Bill Gates or Bono calls me. But we’re trying to resonate with local (and some “national”) musicians that take their art and craft seriously and are also growing, emerging, and connected to their fan base – and want to leverage their voices and platform for a greater cause of justice and compassion.
So, can you recommend some of your favorite emerging musicians in your respective cities or countries that I need to pass on to ODW’s Artists and Musicians intern? List their names, urls, and MySpace – if they have one.
