Independent Orlando band Savannah have announced their IndieGoGo fundraising campaign for their next album, but it has a twist. The band is not only campaigning to raise funds for their next CD, but they have also pledged to dedicate their time to Orlando’s Arnold Palmer Hospital for children. The more money pledged, the more time they donate.
If the band reaches their $12,000 goal, they will be donating 60 hours of their time to the hospital. The band members plan to spend their time teaching, playing and hanging out with these children with the hope of inspiring, motiving, and potentially changing their lives. “Music will be a big part of our time at the hospital,” said James Major, the band’s lead singer in the band’s press release. “It’s vital for our music to touch people in a positive and moving way, but it’s equally important for us to reach out and really make a difference in people’s lives.”
The list of perks to help the band reach their goal include digital copies of the new album, signed and hand numbered physical copies of the new CD, an exclusive Indiegogo participants only t-shirt, a private acoustic concert, a personal Skype call with the band, a song dedication on the new CD, a signed drum head or a signed Fender Telecaster. There is also the opportunity for a contributor to get with the band and name a song on the new album, but there are only two left of those to claim.
The band has until November 17 to reach their goal amount and is halfway there. This is a fixed funding campaign, so the band needs to reach their goal in order to get the money.
