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?
"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
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!

How to Register:
"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

Singathon to teach your children that they can help

"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
