In an effort to create happiness and alleviate suffering in the world, The Apollo Aid Foundation has officially launched with huge support from Bryan Kearney, John Askew, Solarstone, Ferry Tayle, The Thrillseekers, and many more.
Dance music artists are uniting with The Apollo Aid Foundation, generously agreeing to donate their fee from one gig this year. Half will go to a charity of their choice, and the rest will go to charities decided by you, the fans.
The foundation was created to help raise the critical funds necessary to support multiple causes around the world.
By donating one performance fee per year all participating artists support causes that are close to their hearts as well as the annual Apollo Aid Fan Fund. With the Fan Fund, the Apollo Aid Foundation not only enables the dance music community to help decide which causes should be supported as a whole by the Foundation, but also gives them the opportunity to make donations themselves and join the movement of giving back on a large scale.
To date, Andy Moor, Bryan Kearney, Chris Schweizer, Darren Porter, Factor B, Ferry Tayle, John Askew, Matt Bowdidge, Neptune Project, Solarstone, The Thrillseekers, just to name a few, have all joined to support the new foundation, and has launched today.
The UK based charity, founded by Dan Willis and Nick Tuckett, received early support and guidance from various industry professionals, Dance music enthusiasts and artists, all of which have proved invaluable in turning the concept into an operational charitable organisation.
“I am looking forward to seeing Apollo Aid achieve so much in giving back to those in need in the world. It is exciting, and very positive that we are working hard to unite the Dance music industry to make such difference with the foundation globally.” co-founder Dan Willis states.
Alongside the highly anticipated launch of the charity, the Apollo Aid Foundation has also partnered with Los Angeles’ premier club Exchange to host an Apollo Aid night to raise money for charity. The multi-artist event will be the first chance for fans to actively join the AAF movement by just celebrating with their favorite DJs. More information about the event will be announced soon.
The Apollo Aid Foundation sets sail with the goal of bringing a new level of unity to the Dance music industry.
