Money for Jam Charity Busking Challenge

September 28th 2010
We want to tell all New Zealand performers that they can win big prizes in our charity busking challenge while supporting a great cause. Have a look, we think you'll agree it is very cool.

Money for Jam is the fund raising initiative of the charity organisation StarJam. StarJam offers performance programmes for kids with disabilities in New Zealand so they can gain respect, confidence, empowerment, new friends, new hope and new purpose within a fun and inclusive atmosphere. Demand for these places now outstrips our resources. Our aim is to sign up 100 teams to go busking on the street (21st October 2010) and gather online donations now to raise $100,000 so we can create more spaces for kids with disabilities in more places around New Zealand .
If you know someone who would be up for this kind of fun I would really love you to ask them to enter a team.  They (or you) can also upload a video of the busking and really get ahead of the game.

There is already quite a buzz around this and people are starting to support the buskers already signed up. If you want to join in the buzz with a donation for a team you can click here.

There are heaps of cool prizes including two return premium economy tickets to LA - kindly donated by Air New Zealand - with a visit to the Hollywood set of Criminal Mind, for the team that raises the most money. Click here for a full list of prizes.

Here is a list of things that you can do for StarJam!

I really can't think of a more deserving reason to pull out the camera, dust off the guitar and sing to your heart's content!
