For what it’s worth, I’ve always felt it’s been important to give back, whether that be with donating money or time to worthwhile causes and organizations. But because of the current climate right now I think it’s time to step it up a bit. And I’ve been inspired by so many of my selfless friends, and in this particular case, my homeboy Dave Nada. So…
For the remainder of 2017 at least, 10% of all my earnings from all my DJ gigs will be donated to charitable causes in whatever market I’m playing in. Whatever city I’m in, I’ll identify a worthwhile cause and make sure they see this money directly from my pocket.
In addition to this, with enough advance planning I’ll work to create a partnership with whatever organization I’m working with to get them involved, help raise awareness of their mission, and hopefully allow them to reap whatever residual benefits from these shows and their local community.
In the next couple months I have shows lined up in Philly, New York, Miami, Los Angeles and San Francisco. With lots more always coming down the road. So wherever I go, I can leave that place with having helped in a way that has a lasting effect.
Just seems like the right thing to do. I’m pretty psyched for this! Thanks for all your support y’all!
