The Second Line Jazz Crawl for Charity is launching a Kickstarter campaign to expand into new cities.
Do you want to experience the magic of a New Orleans Second Line in the city streets of your hometown? Let us know where to bring the party and we’ll help you ‘Take it to the Streets’! By popular demand we have decided to start establishing the annual festivities and community impact of the Jazz Crawl for Charity in new cities. We would love for the second line tribute and charitable contributions to reach hundreds of communities all over the country, but we are going to need your help!
Several people have asked if I would consider replicating the Jazz Crawl in their home cities.
The heart warming response over the last couple of years has given me confidence to launch a Kickstarter campaign and officially establish the ‘NOLA Kid at Heart Foundation’ to govern the Jazz Crawl and expand the unique celebration and community impact into other cities. If the fundraiser is successful the proceeds will be used to build the legal and organizational foundation necessary to support this sort of growth.
The Kickstarter campaign will launch May 8th and end June 28th of 2018.
For as little as $5 you’ll be recognized as an original ambassador for the Jazz Crawl and given the right to cast a vote to bring the spirit of New Orleans to a city near you. Other Kickstarter rewards will include beautiful pieces of artwork by popular New Orleans artist Rickey Charles, hand sewn garments by the ‘Charleston Krewe’ boutique, and great memorial options for backing the campaign.
We aren’t just launching this campaign to raise money though.
We are hoping to find likeminded people with a passion for the city of New Orleans and a willingness put forth the leadership to help grow the organization. It takes some time and effort to coordinate the Jazz Crawl, but it is so rewarding. Not only would you be throwing an epic party that gives back to the community in memory of loved ones, but you will be given the opportunity to meet great people and work with talented artists and musicians. If the fundraiser is successful we will also offer compensation packages and fun incentives for those that want to be involved with our growth.
