Upcoming shows for the #iGIVEafunk Tour:

Nov. 15 Ziggy's Winston Salen, NC

Nov. 16   Bear Creek Festival


_______________________________________________________________________

**STRAIGHT TO THE POINT SUMMARY**

We are launching a Creative Arts movement called #iGIVEafunk to inspire everyone to STOP and take a moment to LISTEN to the world around them and STAND UP for what they believe in.

For example: 

Tell the world "iGIVEafunk about breast cancer awareness, and I'm taking part in a walk to raise funds and bring awareness to the cure!"  

OR  

"iGIVEafunk about musical education, so I'm donating my time to teach the youth in my neighborhood"  

OR 

"iGIVEafunk about the cure for Diabetes, so I'm starting with my family and teaching them the importance of balanced and healthy eating" 

To do our part, we are going on tour, using the power of music to bring awareness to the needs of different community focused organizations in the cities we stop in. We will turn this experience into a Documentary and as part of it record a brand new Bootsy Collins Live DVD and Album!

After the tour is over, we will continue to spread our beliefs that the world is only lacking all of us Give'n A Funk about and taking action for what we hold as important in our individual lives. 

#iGIVEafunk is our chance to come together with a unified voice!

Our Story

#iGIVEafunk is Creative Arts movement led by Bootsy Collins, meant to inspire everyone to STOP, LISTEN, AND STAND UP for each other. It will launch as part of a World Tour and spur a brand new Bootsy Collins Album and Documentary/Live DVD all inspired by the journey. 

In case you're unfamiliar with Bootsy, he has been inducted in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, Won Grammies, awarded multiple Gold and Platinum records...but most importantly, we have spent the years working on two initiatives: 

The Bootsy Collins Foundation - "Say it Loud, a Music Instrument for Every Child"  

The Bootsy Girls - "To lift the self esteem of young girls & women around the world through music & the arts."

Both initiatives have helped us change the lives of thousands of people around the globe, and now we would like to take our outreach to a grander scale. We are passionate about the arts, it is our belief that if we encourage creative activities in young people, they will bloom into much better adults.  

With the help of a few partners we were able to make a small impact on these lives, but we know that by reaching out and connecting to each of you, we have a chance of touching and reaching places that we couldn't using the traditional methods.

We are welcoming you aboard The Funk-Ship, no middlemen saying we can't get down and Funk in your town, no labels telling us how you want your funk..no nothing but you and us, working together to make a difference one person at a time.

What We Need & What You Get

We're out to have the most honest and open campaign in the history of CrowdFunding, everyone who backs us will be included in our regular updates of how we are doing along our journey, and we will be as clear as possible about how the funds are being used.

We have set our goal as low as possible to complete a decent project that showcases the amazing journey we will be embarking on. Our #iGIVEafunk tour starts Oct 23, and continues for over a year...rehearsals have been going on for over a month now and we're ready to put on a show that's like no other! 

We have attached an accounting of how we will be using the raised funds. Fortunately we have chosen the Flex Funding, which means, we get to keep and use the funds even if we don't reach our goal. So, if we don't, we will still press on with our mission and deliver what we have promised.
