Whacked Management has partnered with a number of agencies who book entertainers and set up a funding account for 100 artists in the entertainment industry who have lost out on corporate shows, launches, club gigs and public shows due to CoVID-19 and the lockdown.
Many shows have being cancelled and sponsorships have been pulled. Many of these artists were already struggling in a difficult economy already and this shutdown has pushed the industry towards the brink of collapse.
The reality is that entertainers have lost out on corporate events, roadshows, launch events, awards evenings, club gigs and public shows for the next 3-6 months. This is how these artists put food on the table for their families and pay their bills.
I don’t know about you, but a global pandemic didn’t factor into my plans for the first half of 2020. And yet here we are.
It’s a fact that CoVID-19 has dealt a massive blow to the Entertainment Industry globally. These are the men and women called to the front lines year after year to give up their time.
They use their brands, their platforms and their talents to assist in raising funds for hundreds of charity events and community upliftment projects. Now it is their time of need.
I’m asking you to provide some financial help to keep this industry alive and help those that help so many other, during these tough times.
