The Specifics

GOOD invites individuals and organizations with a passion for music to propose a creative project that will unite and uplift your community. Are you an arts educator? Multi-instrumentalist? Star vocalist for a barbershop quartet? No matter what your talent, we know you have valuable skills and ideas to offer. So whether you want to host a neighborhood drum clinic, plan a benefit concert for a local cause, or share your songwriting chops with students, we want to put your project in the spotlight. Tell us how you would use $2,500 to make music that brings your community to life.

The Challenge is open for submissions between February 15 and March 15 (noon Pacific Time). From March 15-29, we’ll open it up to a public vote. Rally your colleagues and friends to get behind your effort and join the GOOD community in deciding which idea is most deserving of the cash to make it happen.

Connect with us on twitter at @GOODmkr and follow this challenge at #MakeMusic.

MORE THAN MUSIC MOVEMENT INC. (AKA MTM2) HAS BEEN WORKING ON SCRAPS FOR THE PAST 4 YEARS! WE STARTED OUT AS VOLUNTEERS IN LASALLE SCHOOL FOR BOYS IN NEW YORK TEACHING 13-19 YEAR OLDS HOW TO WRITE SONGS AND RECORD THEM! WE WORKED WITH THE TEACHERS, STAFF AND PARENTS OF THESE STUDENTS! ALL OF OUR KIDS SUFFERED WITH NO LESS THAN ADHD, BIPOLAR AND CRIMINAL CHARGES! 7 OUT OF 10 KIDS THAT LEFT THAT SCHOOL WENT EITHER TO JAIL OR THE GRAVE! WHILE IN OPERATION, MTM2 WAS RESPONSIBLE FOR A SHIFT IN THE BEHAVIORS OF THE RESIDENTS THAT CULTIVATED INTO BETTER GRADES ACADEMICALLY AND RESIDENTIALLY! WE HAVE SEEN THAT MUSIC IS A POWERFUL TOOL THAT CAN BE UTILIZED TO AFFECT CHANGE IN THE LIFE OF A CHILD THAT MOST WOULD CONSIDER A LOST CAUSE! MTM2 HAS SEEN KIDS THAT NEVER PLANNED FOR ANYTHING EXCEPT NEGATIVITY BEGIN TO HOPE, DREAM & APPLY THEMSELVES TOWARDS THEIR HEARTS DESIRES! THAT IS WHY WE DO WHAT WE DO! THAT IS WHY THIS GRANT WOULD BE PUT TO "GOOD USE"! HATS OFF TO ALL WHO ARE ACTIVELY CREATING GOOD IN THEIR OWN COMMUNITIES AND BEST OF LUCK TO YOU ALL! GET WITH THE MOVEMENT

Though it's clear all other entries are noble, FedwithMusic could potentially revolutionize the way the music industry works. If we win the most votes, the start-up capital could make contests like this in the future unnecessary. We at FedwithMusic believe music's intrinsic value to society could be revitalized by feeding the hungry and you're vote could be what makes that possible. http://makemusic.maker.good.is/projects/musicfed

We need your vote for Artists For Local Agriculture. This is a critical cause and something that virtually everyone agrees on. Our network is expanding rapidly and we are poised to be a national movement that will create real change. We are living in a system that is in the process of breaking down and we are helping to unite the entertainment industry to respond to the dire need for a sustainable civilization. Why support local food production? Because No Farms No Food... The corporate food system we all rely on is deeply flawed and directly linked to MASSIVE declines in our health and environment and will not be able to maintain us for much longer. The time to act is now. We will make a difference and we invite you to join us. Help us get this grant!
