Members of Sum 41 and Three Days Grace are offering one-on-one experiences to raise money for Make Music Matter

You’ve probably seen messages and stories about Giving Tuesday, which is today. There are some cool incentives for people to get involved, too.

For example, Sum 41 and Three Days Grace launched a peer-to-peer fundraising campaign. They want fans to record a video of themselves busting their favourite dance move and share it on social media using the hashtag #TogetherWeGroove. If you don’t dance, you can also make a donation to to Make Music Matter and call out family and friends to get involved. Money will go to the Healing in Harmony program. It seeks to help trauma survivors from marginalized communities. More details here.

The top two fundraisers will get:

  • Private 30-minute virtual hangout with lead singer Matt Walst and drummer Neil Sanderson Three Days Grace
  • Private 30-minute virtual Sum 41 bass lesson with Cone McCaslin from Sum 41

The challenge began today and will continue until 11:59pm New Year’s Eve.

There’s more, too. The #TogetherWeGroove online auction including items and experiences with Corey Hart, Sam Roberts, The Trews, David Bottrill, and others, runs December 7-17. Details soon on the #TogetherWeGroove campaign page.
