Sign up a team and get busking!

There is hype and momentum building about Money for Jam so I know it’s about now that you will be thinking, how can I help? Well that’s simple! You can sign yourself up to busk You might believe you have no talent but I’d bet this is as far from the truth as possible. You can sing, you can mime, you can play an instrument, you can do magic, you can whatever you want (as long as it’s not offensive!) sign up a team by visiting www.money4jam.org.

There are heaps of cool prizes up for grabs including two return Air New Zealand premium economy tickets to LA, with a visit to the Hollywood set of Criminal Minds, for the team that raises the most money.

Other prizes are given out for:
* Best video of a Money for Jam busking session
* The craziest location for a Money for Jam busking session
* The worst singing on a Money for Jam video
* Best photo of a Money for Jam busking team
* Best name for your team of buskers

Still not convinced? It’s ok … you can check out all the teams, view their videos, join our facebook page and donate to your favorites. So far we have some great talent so keep it coming!

Money4Jam – Busking Challenge WIN WIN WIN!


Greetings StarJam Blog Readers

I’m writing to tell you that www.money4jam.org is now live. Have a look, I think you’ll agree it is very cool.

Money for Jam is the fund raising initiative of the charity organisation StarJam. StarJam offers performance programmes for kids with disabilities in New Zealand so they can gain respect, confidence, empowerment, new friends, new hope and new purpose within a fun and inclusive atmosphere. Demand for these places now outstrips our resources. Our aim is to sign up 100 teams to go busking on the street (21st October 2010) and gather online donations now to raise $100,000 so we can create more spaces for kids with disabilities in more places around New Zealand.

If you know someone who would be up for this kind of fun I would really love you to ask them to enter a team. They (or you) can also upload a video of the busking and really get ahead of the game.

There is already quite a buzz around this and people are starting to support the buskers already signed up. If you want to join in the buzz with a donation for a team you can click here.

There are heaps of cool prizes including two return premium economy tickets to LA – kindly donated by Air New Zealand – with a visit to the Hollywood set of Criminal Mind, for the team that raises the most money. Click here for a full list of prizes.

I really can’t think of a more deserving reason to pull out the camera, dust off the guitar and sing to your heart’s content!

Thanks so much for your time.

Best wishes

StarJam
