Hello All!

Hope you’re well and taking good care as we near the end of 2020. We know this year has been tough on everyone.

For those of you who don't already know us, we wanted to take moment to introduce ourselves. Arthur, Angela and Paul built Community Bread several months ago to provide left-field solutions to some challenges we faced in our music community during the wake of this global pandemic.

To put it simply, our goals were to:

We’re proud to say we have achieved these goals since CB’s inception. Over the past 4 livestream events we produced, we have raised nearly $10K for the artists on the lineup as well as the charity orgs: Trans Women of Color Collective, G.L.I.T.S. & ORAM + a special collab with Filipino queer collective That Elephant Party raising funds for Filipino Trans Power, an uplifting response to their government’s brutal treatment of LGBTQ+ folks. At the same time, we connected together over 2 dozen collectives from around the world to join our network from Discwoman to Mala Junta and intend to keep growing this global network to shine a light on these incredible collectives.

As we’ve said from the beginning, CB does not take a cent from proceeds raised & always have the receipts to prove it. In all transparency, the only time the platform has received any financial support via sponsorship was through Red Bull in the 2nd livestream event (who pledged to match 1K in donations to G.L.I.T.S. and provide us with 1K) that was subsequently all directed to covering some of the production costs for that livestream.

Which brings us to the point of this letter. Many ppl aren’t aware but there are  a lot of expenses & costs involved with running a livestream platform, from tech development to video editing to paying for visual artists ourselves when a DJ does not have the resources to create their own visuals. We pay out of our own pocket to produce these livestreams.

For the first time ever, we are asking for donations to keep Community Bread as a platform running into the new year so we can continue supporting marginalized artists earn coin, during this pandemic, provide you with next-level livestreams, provide helpful resources and as always support an LGBTQ+ charity org.  All artists on the bill have kindly donated their time and talent for this cause and – if you have the means to do so – we hope you can support so that Community Bread can continue.

With love from,
Arthur, Angela, and Paul
