Aaron Todd's GoFundme Campaign exists to help Aaron Todd to take his music abroad through live performance, teaching and public speaking. To date, with your support, he has visited 7 countries including France, the Netherlands, and Germany with more requests coming in. The challenge in today's world is that to "do the work" you have to GET THERE, and travel is an expense often left to the artist. Assistance with support to cover the expense of travel is so very appreciated. Donors of $100.00 or more US, are automatically shipped their item of choice from the store:
https://www.aarontoddmusic.com/store.html
(with no shipping costs, any where in the world where shipping is possible).  This will also include a hand-written Haiku dedicated to you.

With your help, Aaron Todd can continue what started at the end of last year and continue to promote the forthcoming project "A Time for Poets"  Which is about finding words and song that lift us, and that does not divide. 

With your continued support, so much more can be done to help bring the poetry of music back into focus.  In fact, Aaron Todd believes it is the medicine for our moment.  The last time Aaron Todd was on the road in 2017, Here is what got accomplished.

1. Completed selection, and mastering of the 4 song  EP, "Days of Grace." 

2. He also finished key parts of his book "The Tao of Music" which is about how the thread of music that connects us, is essential to fabric of our culture, and it inspired the current musical project "A Time of Poets"

3.  Was was profiled by "Pays du Limousin," magazine, a beautiful, high gloss periodical, and their piece on him ran in the February 2017 edition.  The article is now on newstands and available online:  http://www.paysdulimousin.fr/

4. Was also interviewed on Nigerian radio, while in Europe  The introduction to the African Diaspora was marvellous, and important to his international work.  

5. Had series of well received solo performances, in a number of countries which was very exciting.  After a particularly well received performance of Sting's "Fragile" He was invited to record at the Centre International d'art & du Paysage, and invited to apply for an artist in residency, which was a great honor.  

6.  He performed throughout the Netherlands and several world famous venues to critical acclaim including The Vorstin, The Dauphine, the Water Hole, and the Het Musiatheater

7.  He was intervied on a number of international radio stations, and premiered a special christmas release of "God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen"

8. He wrote and produced a single for Russian actress/singer Elena Karenina "You Turned the Night (Into Day)" which is playing internationally.

9. He participated in a cultural exchange project with school children in Gueret France and supported the ministry's efforts to encourage art, and cultural awareness.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------
Your support allows him to SAY YES to current offers:

a.  Le Festival des Chansons d'Amour In August

b. March 2018 In studio concert and interviews

c. April 2018 Recording Sessions in the UK Band Violet Reality

With more requests coming in, at this early stage in 2018 your support is VERY much needed.

In addition to airfare (we also accept donations of airline miles) Your assistance helps with travel not covered by the host like:

1. Cover the travel by train to the venues we have been booked to perform.  We have pending dates in March in Amsterdam, and a Euro Pass train ticket will allow unrestricted movement between the Netherlands and other countries in Europe for 3 months.

2. Cover the cost of at least one person to photograph/video our performances.  Capturing the work to assist in telling the story of the journey is crucial.

Finally, while this is a modest campaign, should  there ever be any remaining funds, I am commited to paying it forward, and donating what is left to a worthy charity.
