Inclusivi-tee, a Minnesota-based Public Benefit Corporation, and Unembellished, a University of Minnesota student group, are seeking sponsors for Kindness Without Borders, a musical celebration being held in support of immigrants on Friday, July 20 at the University of Minnesota.  Performers will include Mari Harris (jazz singer), Eco Andino (Andean guitar and flute), Travla (rap), and Son Rimay (Musica Mexicana). Speakers include David Lawrence Grant, noted screenwriter, author, and speaker, and Pastor Daniel Romero from First Congregational Church in Minneapolis. Food will be available.  We are planning for 100+ participants. Both the campus and larger Minnesota community will be involved. If money is collected beyond what is needed to run this event and create the t-shirt, it will be evenly split between Unembellished, who will use the money to hold student-support events at U of M, and RAICES, who work with immigrants at the border.


Kindness Without Borders is the pre-launch for the Kindness Concert Experience, during which we will video record "unknown" Minnesota Super Groups, who have songs highlighting kindness, community, or friendship.  The recordings will then be mixed into a concert video, which will be streamed worldwide November 11-17, in recognition of World Kindness Week.  We expect an audience of 100,000-1,000,000 for this event.
