Fundraiser for the Bernie Symphony

- REWARDS WILL BE GIVEN FOR DONATIONS. SEE BELOW. -

I wrote a symphony dedicated to Bernie Sanders.

I want to make a recording of the symphony, and send the recording on a CD and/or vinyl record to the Vermont Senator himself, just to show him how much he truly means to me, as a politician and as a human being.

Unfortunately, symphonies cost a lot of money to record, so I need your help.

I've decided, in honor of the altruistic and compassionate nature of the aforementioned man, I will be donating all profits made from sales of the final recording to various progressive charities and political organizations, like immigrant rights groups, homeless shelters, labor rights groups, voter rights groups, anti-war organizations, etc.

The Bernie symphony consists of three movements, and features 27 instrumentalists. It’s an orchestrated and extended version of this song:

(Within reason, obviously. I won't cover songs that are excessively vulgar or carry any kind of abhorrent/overly controversial context.)

Let's all work together to show Bernie just how much he means to us. He's more than deserving of the support.

NOTICE OF EDIT: The description for this campaign originally stated that I would be donating 20% of funds raised by the GoFundMe campaign to charities and activist groups. But after some discussion over this, I've come to realize that not everyone who donates to my symphony project will hold the exact same political views as me, and some people may not necessarily agree with or approve of me using their donated money to support charities or organizations they don't entirely agree with. So with that being said, I've decided that, rather than 20% of funds raised by this campaign, all profits made from sales of the final recorded project will be donated to charities and activist groups.
