Hearing about things like this puts a big ass smile on my face. Tip of the hat to you Justin Blau for using your EDM culture celebrity for a good cause. So yea, 3LAU (you’ve probably heard of him… he ranks #3 on Beatport overall chart) has a gig at The Fonda Theatre on December 14th here in Los Angeles and as the headline says, he’ll be donating his earnings to build schools.
3LAU being a do-gooder isn’t a one 0ff, since April he has been donating all the proceeds from the sale of his music on Beatport to Pencils of Promise, a non-profit that builds schools in developing countries like Guatemala, Laos, and Nicaragua for underprivileged children. It only took guy 2 months for him to raise the entire $25,000 needed to build the first school. Currently, 3LAU is raising another $25,000 for Pencils of Promise by donating $1 from every ticket to his 3LAU Your Mind Tour. His goal is to build 3 schools with his music for Pencils of Promise. His earnings from his upcoming show at The Fonda Theatre will contribute to the charity.
Go here for a chance to win the ultimate fan experience: A pair of tickets for the winner and a friend, plus a meet and greet with 3LAU at The Fonda Theatre in Los Angeles on December 14.
Let’s harness the power of the dance music movement to give something real: to give back.
