Big Gigantic Raises $70,000 To Help Fight World Hunger
“A Brighter Future. These words vaulted themselves into my mind one day in a moment when I was feeling like I was unsure of myself, unsure of what exactly I was doing with my life and unsure about humanity and the volatile state of the world we live in today. As human beings, we all have low points in our lives where we question everything and are truly shown how shocking and just plain difficult the world can be. But at the same time, our high times wouldn't be as extraordinary without the low times giving us a grand perspective on our lives and the world around us.”
-Dominic Lalli of Big Gigantic
Boulder based duo Dominic Lalli and Jeremy Salken of the electronic/instrumental band Big Gigantic are making #ABigGiganticDifference by partnering with Denver based, non-profit organization Conscious Alliance for their 2018 project. This project’s mission is to build a headquarters and warehouse facility for the generous hunger relief and youth empowerment center that has been making a difference in their hometowns for years. Since 2002,Conscious Alliance has provided 2.3 million meals to food banks nation-wide and have produced more than 7,000 hours of volunteer time. (Biggigantic.net)
This dedicated company has been working out of several small locations throughout Denver and is now, thanks to community involvement, overflowing out of their storage and work locations. By raising $70,000+ a consolidated location will be constructed, allowing the organization to become better equipped to make an even larger impact while being able to efficiently distribute food as more and more generous donations are collected
This 2018 project is being funded by a generous donation of $50,000 raised by the BigGiganticDifference Foundation in 2018, plus an additional projected $20,000 in proceeds from the intimate sold-out show to take place in Denver, CO. at Ophelia’s Electric Soapbox on December 6th, 2018.
ABigGiganticDifference Foundation has provided an outlet for fans to stay true to the spirit of Big G and give back to their communities each year. Last year, ABGD completed a computer lab for Youth On Record who “provides critical for-credit courses, out-of- school programming and economic opportunities to the most under-resourced young people in Denver; by training and supporting the next generation of engineers, producers and musicians.”.
Big Gigantic continues to promote kindness as the answer and is doing incredible things to prove that love wins. To be a part of the movement and to help shape a brighter future for not only your community, but for our nation, please visit the ABigGiganticDifference Foundation website to get involved or to donate to the foundation.
