Bass Network - ATL Donation Drive

The Gathering is nearly upon us! ATL is about to be swarming with Bass Heads for two days of no expectations and UNLIMITED possibilities (:

As with our other special events, we once again set out to give back to the community that welcomes us with open arms. That’s why the Bass Network has set up a Donation Drive with drawchange, a non-profit organization based out of Atlanta that provides art therapy-based programming to children living in homeless shelters around the country to help them imagine their dreams and attempt to break their cycle of poverty. You can learn more about their organization here:

The Ambassadors will be collecting art supplies that will aid drawchange in their efforts in Atlanta and beyond! The drop off bins will be at the event entrance.

Items to donate:

– Watercolor Paper (larger then 8 1/2×11)
– Thick/Heavy Duty Paper
– Drawing Paper (larger then 8 1/2×11)
– Markers
– Glue sticks

Locations near the venue to pick up items:

– Blick Art Materials: 878 Peachtree Street Northeast, Atlanta, GA 30309
– Binders Art Supplies and Frames: 650 North Avenue Northeast, Atlanta, GA 30308
– Michael’s: 2625 Piedmont Rd Ne, Atlanta, GA 30324
– Target: 1275 Caroline Street Northeast, Atlanta, GA 30307

Also, if you are unable to attend our Gathering in ATL or you want to just give to drawchange from afar, they are accepting $5 donations to reach even more children nationwide! Text GIVEART to 444-999 (:

Please give what you can if you can – we are so lucky and fortunate to be able to gather this weekend and create a magical adventure together, so let’s also think of those who may not be as lucky. Thank you, travel safely, and we shall see you soon!
