LIVE AID TOO
We make it possible for those hurting and in need to survive.
We will do it the next time and every time we are asked. It is who we are.
But now, as we have been shut down since March 13, 2020 and will be until March 2021, we are the ones in dire need. We have not worked at all in six months and will not work for another six months. Imagine that if you will. Look at your life with no income for a year. How would you survive?

There have been many, many more great events, but these are the most well-known.
We are an $877 billion dollar industry with over 10 million people, and we are 100% shut down. We are not the stars, but we are the 10 million people behind the scenes. Many of the companies we worked for are gone. More go under every day. Something must be done now.
The Live Event Industry has been pushing to pass the RESTART Act for months. Most national media have not carried our story and we are unsure why. We pray they carry this story. The RESTART Act as part of the next relief bill is the only thing that will save all of the Live Events Industry. No other Act will save us all.
If the RESTART Act is not passed by October first, over 70% of our industry will face extinction. That means when you want a concert, movie, play, trade show, conference, special event, wedding, birthday party and all of the other events that make our lives great, most of us will simply not be there to deliver a service for you. Our companies will be bankrupt and our people in other industries.
The Live Event Industry is begging the Congress, the media, and you the people to realize we are here and in need. We love what we do, and we love all of you that make our lives possible. Please help us. Time is short, we only have this week. Please pass RESTART. It is time the Live Event Industry has some Live Aid Too.
