Bertani’s Backyard Benefit Concerts Knock it Out of the Park
March 25, 2020
I am also very passionate about music with a message. Reggae is my number one love, and I managed a reggae band for a number of years in DC and was active in promotions of various reggae events. In 2015, I created Yoga Reggae Fest with headliners Third World and Faith Hunter. The purpose of this fest was to introduce healthy living alternatives to a community that has often been underserved.
What was your first impression of Do It For The Love?
It filled me with joy! I love Michael Franti: the man, the music and his commitment to living the main tenet of yoga: compassion and non-harming. I also have been wanting to do some karma yoga (giving back) and since I am a music fan–voila!
What are you most excited about with volunteering for Do It For The Love?
I can just imagine the intended person getting the confirmation that they will be a vip at the concert of their favorite artist! Their joy = my joy
What other causes and organizations are you passionate about?
I am a member of PETA as I am very anti-animal harm. I also follow PRCM (Physicians for Responsible Cancer Medicine) and have participated in some of their events.
What would you tell someone who is thinking about volunteering?
I would tell them to do it for the love 🙂
