  Nationwide

$200, 000 in two weeks, to get the wheels rolling through money donations, funding applications, and a whole heap of sponsorship for specific equipment and gear. Over $50,000 in funding and sponsorship raised by the time this page launched!

Starting from Tasman in June, we aim to have two trucks set off on a unique, FREE, contactless organ tour of New Zealand’s aged and palliative care homes/retirement villages. Give what you can to help us purchase equipment hire and self-contained trucks for the music tour– Bring the tour to your elderly whanau.

These free concerts will bring thanks, joy and love to thousands of care workers and residents, who have been particularly affected and socially isolated due to Covid-19. Whilst we enjoy new freedoms, care homes have to retain stricter protocol. This tour is a way you can help them feel remembered and connected to all of us, in this lonely time.

We have partnered with Age Concern New Zealand who are a registered charity, to provide us with assistance in direction. Any excess money raised above our 200k goal will go straight to supporting their much-needed work with all NZ seniors, at this time.

Our goal with this tour is to send 3 messages:

RESIDENTS – YOU ARE NOT ALONE

CARE WORKERS – THANK YOU!

OUR COMMUNITY – THIS IS WHO WE ARE

For donations $30 or over – Leave a comment with your donation which we will display to residents and care workers on our LED screen, in a book each care home will get to keep! Or email us with your child’s drawing of happiness and their message.

FOR BUSINESS SPONSORSHIP AND ADVERTISING OPPORTUNITIES PLEASE CONTACT THE TEAM

See the video on this page to view our first trial concert in Tasman.

Use of funds

Donations will be used for our event-related costs such as equipment hire, fully self- contained trucks, and creating a book/video for each care home. If we do not reach our goal of raising 200k in two weeks, this will still help the project get off the ground and the first truck will get to go around Nelson/Tasman, and as far as the funds will allow in both Islands.
