The fundraising platform Fandiem has partnered with Groupsintown to raise funds and awareness of various non-profit partners. Their latest campaign, “F-COVID“, will benefit Sweet Relief Musicians Fund and gives fans the chance to win a variety of unique prizes from artists like Metallic, Eric Church, Nine inch nails, Jason Isbeland much more.
“We are thrilled to partner with Bandsintown to inspire communities of artists and fans to support pressing causes,” says the co-founder of Fandiem. Jared Heiman in a press release. “As the industry feels the effects of a new surge, now is the time to launch ‘F-Covid’ and support the Sweet Relief Musicians Fund. This campaign is our collective effort to help musicians and workers in the music industry whose livelihoods continue to be affected.
“At Bandsintown, we believe that live music makes the world a better place by bringing fans together in one of the last tribal experiences. With Bandsintown For Good, we turn that love for live music into social impact,” adds Fabrice Sergeant, managing partner of Bandsintown. “With Fandiem, we make it easier and more rewarding for fans to give back and deepen their connection with the artists they love. We are proud to join forces, raise funds and align our philosophy with the ways we can use technology to serve society.”
Those who donate to the F-COVID campaign can enter to win prizes like a VIP trip to see Eric Church in concert as well as autographed vinyl records, a one-of-a-kind guitar signed by Nine Inch Nails that the band smashed on stage in Brisbane, Australia, tickets to the sold-out Metallica show in Las Vegas, and dozens more. All proceeds will benefit the Sweet Relief Musicians Fund and its goal of providing financial assistance to all types of career musicians and music industry workers struggling to make ends meet while coping with physical or mental health problems, disability or age-related problems.
In March 2020, Sweet Relief launched a COVID-19 fund with a limited amount of funds available to be used specifically for musicians and music industry workers affected by the coronavirus. Funds raised paid for medical bills, accommodation, clothing, food and other vital expenses for those affected by illness or loss of work.
“Our community is still in a state of emergency,” says Aric Steinberg, Executive Vice President of the Sweet Relief Musicians Fund. “Sweet Relief is here to help, and we are grateful to partners like Fandiem and Bandsintown who are willing and able to provide a platform for our supporting artists to raise funds for those in need.”
