The season of giving is officially upon us, and to mark its arrival Bandsintown and Fandiem have teamed up with 30+ artists for our second annual GivingTuesday initiative. Kicking off today, Giving2022 gives fans the opportunity to donate and win once-in-a-lifetime experiences and prizes from acts like Harry Styles, Lizzo, Billie Eilish, Pearl Jam, Dead & Company, Phish, and The Killers. Trust us—between a VIP trip to see Miranda Lambert in Vegas and dinner with Papa Roach, this year’s list of sweepstakes and auctions are not to be slept on.
The artists involved have selected charitable organizations including HeadCount, Sweet Relief Musicians Fund, Miranda Lambert’s MuttNation Foundation, Pearl Jam’s Vitalogy Foundation, Jack Johnson’s Johnson Ohana Foundation, Rock To Recovery, Imagine Dragons’ Tyler Robinson Foundation, and more.
Managing Partner of Bandsintown Fabrice Sergent said, "Live music has the ability to connect people around the issues that are most important to them. We're committed to making sure music fans know about the causes artists care about and giving them the opportunities to donate. Together with Fandiem, we're proud of the impact we've made over the last year, rallying fans to raise more than $1M in donations. We're excited to continue with Giving2022."
Fans can head to Fandiem’s site to donate and learn more about the artist prizes and charitable organizations they’ve partnered with. The fundraiser will extend into January 2023. Those who donate $100 or more will also receive an exclusive limited edition tote bag.
Giving2022 is the latest initiative in our ongoing mission to make the world a better place through the power of live music. Since launching last year, Bandsintown for Good has partnered with Global Citizen to take over 45,000 actions for equality and the environment around the world, and with Tyler Robinson Foundation to support pediatric cancer families with out-of-pocket life expenses. Bandsintown and Fandiem teamed up for the first time during GivingTuesday 2021 and decided to enter a year long partnership of doing good after realizing how much more they can accomplish together. Together we’ve activated our 74+ million users and inspired fans to donate over $1.1M to 25+ artist-selected nonprofits such as VetsAid, The Trevor Project, GLAAD and To Write Love On Her Arms.
