One of the communities that has been most impacted by Covid-19 is the one we are a part of – artists and musicians. With tours, live shows and festivals cancelled, collaborative studio and writing sessions on hold, and creative productions delayed, musicians and artists who were already struggling to make ends meet and access important resources are in need of even more assistance. This is why we launched “MASKS FOR MUSIC”
“Masks for Music” aims to raise money for the Spotify COVID-19 Music Relief Project in support of Unison Benevolent Fund , a non-profit, registered charity that provides counselling and emergency relief services to the Canadian music community. They help professional music makers in times of hardship, illness or economic difficulties, and their work is incredibly important, with or without a Pandemic.

With an ambitious fundraising goal of $10,000 in three weeks, we have created just about 200 M? custom cotton masks with slips for filters – each for sale via a minimum donation of $10. Additionally, we have partnered with 18 local GTA companies to reward our donations above $100 with a number of goods and services from personal training to clothing to jewelry to fresh handmade pasta.
In addition to the support of individuals and small businesses in our community, Spotify Canada has pledged to match any donations made to Unison dollar for dollar up to a collective $10 Million, so any money we raise together will be DOUBLED! In times of darkness and despair, we have seen the light that shines through when people and communities come together, and we want to be a part of that story.
