When I started FRESHCASSETTE two years ago I wanted to share music and other creative outlets, while using humanitarian efforts as the backbone. I also wanted to use it as a way to teach my daughter, Jayden that there is plenty of love and compassion in the world...despite what is often seen on the news.
About three months ago our quest for raising $7,000 to fund our water well came to fruition. We raised $7,030 in eight months time. During that time we won $1,000 for our fundraiser in a video contest presented by Generation Ali and the Muhammad Ali Center. The remaining money was raised by private donations from a group of very generous people.
Since our fundraising has been complete I worked with the people at The Water Project to select a site for the construction of the well. Mangata, South Sudan was selected as the community to receive the well. The well is currently under construction. Once the well is complete I should receive photos of the completed well and the people who will benefit from it.
The video below is our thank you to everyone who donated and supported the funding of this well. I hope you enjoy it.
We chose to release this video on the one year anniversary of Adam Yauch's passing. We hope he would be proud. His legacy will continue to live on forever.
Thank you to everyone who supported this effort. I truly appreciate everything.
Here are the other two videos we made for this project. The first one below is the one which won $1000 from Generation Ali.
Finally, since it is MCA Day. Here is the Beastie Boys remix album we made two years ago, '1200 Miles to the 5 Boroughs'.
