Singathon Benefit for Homeless People

Click here for Singathon Registration Form
Pass It Around! invites you, your family and friends to participate in our nnth annual Singathon Benefit for Homeless People. What better way to sing in support of some of our society's most vulnerable people and to meet other generous-spirited people committed to making our world more humane?

Singathon 2006 raised $17,000 for two bay area homeless shelters. During the course of the our seven previous Singathons, Pass It Around! has raised a cumulative total of $103,706 for agencies serving homeless people in our communities. Please join us, and transform your singing into the gift of life.

How it Works:
Between August and December, participants learn 30 beautiful harmony songs in preparation for the Singathon 2007 concert. Training is fun: you can listen to the practice tape that contains all 30 songs, sing along with the tape, and attend rehearsals. While learning the songs, singers also seek financial sponsors. Pass It Around! recommends that each participant raise $1,000, but you are welcome to participate even if you raise no money at all: vocal and emotional support are important too! 90% of the money raised will be divided between the Raphael House (long term shelter for homeless families in S.F., CA) and the Youth Emergency Assistance Hostel in Berkeley, CA. Pass It Around! will keep 10% to help defray the costs of administering its programs.

We'll perform our Singathon 2007 Concert on Sunday, December 10, from 1:30 p.m. to 4:30 p.m. in front of Peet's Coffee on Fourth Street in Berkeley, CA. We hope you can join us!

For more information, email singathon@PassItAround.org or phone at 415/647-9642, #2.

How to Register:
A registration fee of $50 per family secures your place in Singathon 2006, and covers the cost of your practice tape and sheet music. Children are welcome to participate with their parents, and Pass It Around! welcomes families of all kinds. There's nothing like a Singathon to teach your children that they can help make the world a better place. Register by clicking here for a printable version of the registration form. Fill it out and mail it to Pass It Around! In early August, Pass It Around! will mail your tape and scores, along with solicitation letters and pledge forms for your friends, family, colleagues and neighbors.

"A Singathon is the best way I know to gather a group of compassionate, loving and generous-spirited people who love to sing and are willing to work hard to make the world a better place. You are the people I want to sing with, to walk with through this life, and to know. Thanks for everything." K.E., Singathon Director
"Thanks for the opportunity to grow in singing, in confidence that I can make a difference, in my sense of freedom and expansiveness." A.V., San Francisco

"It was soooo much fun singing in Union Square today! Tonight I heard Rachel absentmindedly humming a Singathon song and I just love that her brain and heart are filled with music. " D.B., Oakland

"Zac and I had a great time singing in Union Square & would have liked to sing longer." P.S., Berkeley
