We are excited to announce that Love In Stereo will be part of TEDxYouthDay!
This Saturday November 19, Brad Montague, part of the team behind Love In Stereo, will be speaking at TEDxYouthNashville.
TEDxYouthDay is a series of TEDx events that will happen all around the world on the weekend around Universal Children’s Day, from November 19 – 21. Brad will be speaking on the magic that happens when you combine compassion, creativity and collaboration.
Hey guys. Brad here. On behalf of the whole team I want to say thanks to everyone for the birthday wishes and kind messages! As we prepare to launch forward into year 2 of Love In Stereo, it’s fun to look back at all that’s happened.
Here are a few of our favorite videos that, in their own way, help tell our story.
Art + Change. Jennalyn Krulish is an artist and one of the most love-driven people I’ve had the chance to meet. This is her talking about her exhibit, Artifacts of My Calling. She proves that art can bring change and healing and hope.
The Confetti Song The Love In Stereo launch party was a blast. Joel Rakes and Shaky Voices came out, put on a great show and we all pulled together to celebrate the beginning of this new adventure with a few of our friends. The night also served as a pre-release party for the My Heart Is In Haiti album.
Thank You For our first project we wanted to help our friends at a children’s home in Haiti. We were surprised and excited when the two shirts, My Heart Is In Haiti and Haiti? Me Likey!, were actually purchased by people! We were so excited we made a personal video of thanks to the fine folks who bought them. Then Old Spice took our idea and did it better.
10,000 Shoes Arianne Krulish was a girl driven by a dream. She wanted to make an impact and she did. This story is living proof of our mantra “Together, we’re louder.” May stories like this happen daily.
We can’t wait to see what happens next.
This month we’re celebrating a full year of Love In Stereo! What an adventure it’s been! We have great things to celebrate, profound lessons we’ve learned, good friends we’ve made and some really exciting things to look forward to.
Thank you. Seriously. When we started this we weren’t sure what would happen. We were just a group of friends who wanted to be a part of something that made a difference. Since then we’ve found that we weren’t and still aren’t alone. You inspire us. You encourage us.
Love In Stereo works to increase collaboration between artists, causes and everyday people on projects that make the world a better place. We do this through work in neighborhoods all over the world. What started as an idea on a napkin for a kind of non-profit record label (and other dumb ideas) has since grown into more. We are no longer content to just raise awareness and funds. We want to really meet the needs of people all over the world. It can only be done together.
Stay tuned in the coming weeks as we celebrate all that’s happened and all that’s about to happen. Celebrate with us!
Together, we’re louder. Do you believe it?
We have a ton of people to thank. The past few weeks have been exciting as we’ve watched the entire Love In Stereo community come together to help start off a project we really feel will be something special.
The above video features two awesome kids: Robbie and Alexia. They have Osteogenesis Imperfecta, often times referred to as “brittle bone disease.” These kids are just two of the countless who’ve been impacted by Special Needs Athletics in Jackson, TN. Here they says thanks (in their own way) to all the people who gave to help make this happen!
We want to say a quick word about how awesome Kickstarter is. This past summer we started talking about doing the project. We came really close to launching it in July. Thankfully we didn’t. They sent us some notes on ways to improve it that would help make it more effective and get more people involved. We listened and it worked. They know what they’re doing.
In case you’re fresh to the site and aren’t sure why we’re even thanking people, check out this original post.
The bottom line: Special Needs Athletics in Jackson, TN is impacting lives. They need funds to help build a sportsplex. It’s going to take a lot of people. We want that to happen. We’re putting out an album called ‘One For The Team’. It features artists like They Might Be Giants, Katie Herzig, Lauren Zettler, Bess Rogers, Shaky Voices, Supercute, Snowglobe, Jason Trachtenburg and more. Through Kickstarter and other efforts (including an incredible fundraiser put on by students in Texas — more on that for another post) we were able to raise over $3,000 which will enable us to more than cover the cost of printing and allow the entire album profits to go to the team.
The album releases in February. We want it to spread the love, joy and amazing story of what’s happening with the special needs community here in West TN all over the globe.
So . . . thank you. Thank you to friends, old and new, who helped. Because of you even more great things are about to happen. In addition to helping the crew at Special Needs Athletics, you’ve pumped us up. We’re fully enlivened by this whole project. You’ve encouraged us. Thank you.
The site has been going for just a handful of weeks and it’s been an exciting handful.
There are so many things we’re looking forward to creating and so many things we want to do, but our first mission has been to build a network of friends. We’ve found some passionate people in Nashville and Boston and Brooklyn and Chicago. We now have friends in places like Texas and California and Oregon who are ready to make some noise. It’s exciting to think about.
We’re really going to need your help in the coming weeks. Soon we’ll be sharing some ways you can help us make a difference. We can’t wait. Right now we still need your help getting the word out about Love In Stereo. Share us with your friends. Post links on blogs, Facebook, Twitter or any other social networking site. Spread our videos around. Do whatever you can because we’re going to need a lot of hands for our upcoming projects.
Together, we can make a difference. Together, we’re louder.
