This Week Donors are Playing for Our Friends

David & pamela Ackerman

This week we’re playing fo David and Pamela Ackerman, a musician couple out of Indianapolis, Indiana.

Before the pandemic David and Pamela were both gigging up to 3 times each weekend, and David was relying on his income from music lessons. Unfortunately not everyone can switch to virtual lessons, so he’s lost a lot of students and revenue during lockdown.

Our donors will be playing and asking you to donate to David & Pamela, and you can do that below to give them a helping hand. Even if you donate a dollar, a pound, or a euro, every little bit adds up. You can hear their tunes in the links below as well.

If you donate by our Go Fund Me, please let us know who your donation is meant for so we can get it to the correct person!
