• Give the gift of giving!

    The concept behind $/BH is that we put a dollar for every ticket sold into a charity fund [Le Bass Banc] and then throughout the year we find charities, organizations & nonprofits which do amazing things to support health, community, family. They exist to enrich the lives of others, so we support them: you can find out more about these awesome programs, and possibly get involved with them on a deeper level through volunteering or spreading the word!

    This year we are focusing on campaigns which offer emotional care and support to people who are struggling, feel alone or depressed, and which promote positive interactions both online and offline. You could say we are focusing on anti-bullying, but ‘bully’ is almost too narrow of a word… it confines the mind to the image of an oversized 5th grader teasing some 2nd graders on a playground. In reality, human interaction can be cruel, ruthless, brutal and horrifying - even in simple social media, online, in everyday life...

  • In addition to encouraging 'random acts of kindness', and urging people to 'treat others as you want to be treated' - we want to go a step further by highlighting organizations which face these issues head on with positive results. Life is so short, and each moment flashes by so quickly: you have a choice in every moment regarding how you are going to spend your time, how you are going to behave in public, and how you are going to make other people feel. We want to see positive change in how humans interact, and we hope you will join us in exploring and supporting these awesome organizations.

    For this chapter of $/BH we are taking $50,000 which YOU have helped us raise at shows, and will disperse it out by showcasing each organization in turn, then letting you vote for the one closest to your heart: the org with the most votes will get $20k, the 2nd will get $10k, and the other 4 will get $5k each. Everybody gets something supportive, and everyone gets a bit more educated on positive change. Just click the arrow to the right to begin.

    We make these donations on your behalf, in honor of all the positive energy and love that you bring to our community. Thank you for participating :)

    MISSION: Fighting nonconsensual pornography through social, technological, and legal innovation.

    Nonconsensual pornography (NCP), aka "revenge porn," is the distribution of sexually graphic images of individuals without consent. Before CCRI, victims had little recourse against this devastating abuse. To date, CCRI has counseled thousands of victims, helped 25 states pass NCP laws, and compelled tech companies like Google to ban NCP.
