Be A Superhero: Laurie Berkner's Kickstarter 2016
Help Bring 5 Laurie Berkner Concerts to Hospitals and Special Needs Schools in 2017!
UPDATE: We got fully funded! Thank you SO much to all who helped back the campaign. See below for some special thanks!
Here are the hospitals and special needs schools who will be receiving boxes of CDs. Thank you to all who submitted schools and hospitals! We chose these out of a hat each time we hit specific funding goals:
My new album, Superhero, has gotten me thinking about ways that everyday people are Superheroes. There are lots of opportunities for small acts of kindness to create a Super impact in the world, and I want to create something that brings people together through those acts.
I've had the pleasure of meeting so many wonderful kids in my 20+ years of being a children's musician, and time and again I meet kids who face big challenges, from illnesses to disabilities to developmental delays. These kids inspire me so much in their bravery, strength, and their passion to be the best they can be. I've also gotten to see the unique way that my music plays a role in many children's lives: it can be a motivator, a comfort, a means of communication, or simply a break from a difficult day. I receive requests from people all over the country to come play at their hospitals and special needs schools and to meet the kids who have been touched by my music.
That's why I've decided to donate my time and music to performing 5 concerts for children in need in 2017! However, putting on a concert is an expensive endeavor, and that's why I need your help to cover the costs of bringing a concert to these places. Luckily, I have been touring for so long that my team and I have a good idea of what the costs are and ways to keep them reasonable.
