Wilmington, Delaware's The Ladybug Festival, the Nation's largest celebration of women in music, has moved online due to COVID-19 to protect the safety of the artists, vendors, attendees, and production and event staff. We're so grateful to be one of the benefitting charities of this amazing event!
So far it’s been announced that Vanessa Carlton and Kechi Okwuchi (America’s Got Talent) will be performing, and Jamila Mustafa will host!
Tickets are just $20 with proceeds going to Sweet Relief and Downtown Visions.
This Saturday, June 13th, San Francisco band, and #SweetSupporters, The Happys will be performing via livestream to help raise much needed funds for Sweet Relief's COVID-19 Fund! Tickets are just $10, you can purchase them at the link below!
The show will be streamed via Pop In Here, a marketplace now hosting online classes and shows alongside non-profit organizations and donating 100% of the proceeds. Up until recently, Pop In Here's main focus was to connect fitness teachers with students in NYC by establishing pop up yoga studios throughout the studios.
Shopping at the Sweet Relief Merch Store just got a lot easier! We are now offering Amazon Pay as an option at checkout, making the process that much easier. This new method enables you to make your purchase using your linked Amazon account. Avoid re-entering your payment and shipping information next time you shop to support our mission!
#SweetSupporters Umphrey's McGee has partnered with us to bring you these beautifully designed face masks! A portion of proceeds from every sale goes towards Sweet Relief's mission to help musicians and music industry workers in need!
Designed by Irene Roth at @Greyivystudio and produced by Climate Masks, a US veteran-owned company.
"Climate Masks was created to help give back to our community. With the recent pandemic, we wanted to find a way to help those in the service industry that had lost their jobs. We have set up incentive programs in Dallas and Chicago. In addition, we wanted to give back to the music industry and naturally as fans of Umphrey's McGee we reached out to them. - Jake Runey, Founder of Climate Masks"
As an organization that speaks up for those that are in need within the music industry, on 6/2, via socials and this post, we step away from our usual music-related posts & only share info about ways you can get involved, learn about & support orgs that continue to fight for freedom.
