Charitybuzz: What is it?


Charitybuzz: Is it worth it?


Charitybuzz newsletters deliver to my email inbox often. However, until now, it didn’t seem like the kind of thing I could afford. Nor would it interest me. For more than a decade, I’ve been fortunate to brush shoulders with, work with, advise and eat meals with these people. So paying (tens of) thousands of dollars (to a third party) to be around my peers felt weird.

As a result, I thought: Why not donate to the charity directly? I couldn’t fathom it. I still can’t, but that doesn’t mean others shouldn’t know about Charitybuzz.

According to its website, “Charitybuzz is the place to find extraordinary experiences and luxuries to benefit remarkable charities making an impact.

Our online auctions bring together hundreds of the world’s most acclaimed celebrities, inspiring luminaries, and beloved brands to give you unforgettable access to your passions. Plus, every winning bid supports an incredible cause.

From walk-on roles with Hollywood A-listers to power lunches with Fortune 500 CEOs, when you join Charitybuzz every dream is a new way to make a difference.”

In today’s newsletter, Billy Joel is front and center. After bidding to make a difference, you and eleven of your friends could enjoy a luxury suite for a sold-out Billy Joel concert at Madison Square Garden. Currently, the bid is at $9,250 with eight days left to bid. Otherwise, the value of the experience is $20,000. Fourteen people placed a bid.

If Billy Joel isn’t your cup of tea, you can join Celine Dion at a show in Paris this Summer. If you’re into sports, you could head to Super Bowl LII to have the ultimate experience, and if that doesn’t tickle your fancy, you could bid to meet another star (Britney Spears) in Las Vegas at the end of the month.

Strangely enough, music doesn’t do it for you? Other categories include travel, business experiences, food and wine, fashion, art and collectibles, and wellness and beauty.

In conclusion, learn more about the life-changing online charity auctions curated by Charitybuzz, all in the name of raising funds for nonprofit organizations, now. Charitybuzz’s list of charities is extensive. Take a moment to learn about each charity that interests you.


OWSLA To Donate Proceeds From Nestivus Campaign To Bridges For Music

Last December, OWSLA partnered with the electronic music-focused non profit organization Bridges For Music to launch Nestivus, a campaign which lowers monthly fees for new members to the label’s online subscription program, OWSLA IV. Users also benefited from exclusive new goodies, including downloads, merch, and never-before-heard remixes, with all proceeds proudly to be given to charity.

The result of the campaign was monumental, with a marked increase in subscribers and social interaction, and most importantly, $7692.46 raised for Bridges For Music. These profits, made from new and existing subscriptions for that month, have been donated in order to assist Bridges For Music in their founding of a new music studio in Langa Township, Cape Town, South Africa, a township with a vibrant music scene where house music has become a driving force for the youth. Bridges For Music actively supports electronic music development in developing countries, leaving a positive impact in disadvantaged communities and helping to raise global awareness about local issues through music. The organization embodies the mantra that, in our globalized world, electronic music is a universal language for giving back and dismantling socio-economic boundaries between the rich and poor, and OWSLA is humbled to have helped in that cause.

Bridges For Music is now in the process of creating the first school dedicated to music and multimedia in that area, which will give local artists access to the right facilities for developing their existing creative skills. This money will used to work on the first phase of that school, which includes the creation of some smaller production suites and DJ booths. Humbled to have helped in that cause.
