YOUR DONATIONS IN ACTION RIGHT NOW-
Operation Underground Railroad:
Peter Hollens and I teamed up with O.U.R. to create a music video to send a message to kids who have been rescued from Sex Trafficking- You're worth has not changed.. You are have so much to offer this world! I've been in awe watching Operation Underground Railroad team members walk into the situations, acting as buyers, who then buy and rescue the children and then arrest the Traffickers. They literally risk their lives to save these children. Peter Hollens, James the Mormon, Jenna Rammell, GLUE and I have become the face for #freedom4all Campaign running this July.
Utah Foster Care:
Did you know that 86% of children who have been sex trafficked were at one time in the Foster Care System? I met Aidree, a child in foster care in December. My heart broke listening to her past. Ever since then I have determined to help Aidree and so many other kids in foster care who need to know- Maybe you can't control your past, but you can define your future. There are currently 3000 kids in Utah in foster care and 1300 of them don't have homes. Evynne Hollens and I are donating proceeds of our song "Rockabye" to Utah Foster Care. We are also soliciting donations through an online ad campaign with Aidree as the leading voice in the promotion.
Be a Part of the Journey..
NADIA, WHAT THE HECK IS PATREON??
It's a small tip or donation towards every video I make. (1-2 times a month) That tip will automatically be placed as you sign on, for each video. You can choose how much to give. And you can start or stop whenever. Look to your right on the screen to check out rewards I offer you when you donate...
SO WHERE DOES THE MONEY GO??
Your tips go toward goes towards working with non-profit organizations, music production, video production, shoot location, ad campaigns, flights for collaborations, and team members who focus time working with the charities to get the message right. You make it so I can focus on videos with messages that need to be heard, rather than scrambling for funds and sponsors each time we want to work with another charity or church group or school group.
THE WHY :)
My dream has always been to be a singer. My family calls me a "radio that never shuts up".. haha I've always walked around the house singing.. But I knew that I wanted to do something that would be more than just singing or entertaining, but something that could be impactful, something that could make a difference. I wrote my first song, "Daddy Come Home" when I was 11yrs old, thinking about another girl who might not have her daddy home for Christmas as he would be in war.. one thing led to the next and many incredible people were placed into my life, and I co-founded a non-profit to honor soldiers that we still do each year. From there it created a sense of yearning to do more, after that I wrote a song from my experience of being bullied in school and created a music video to give hope to kids that have been bullied. Then I wrote a song for Inner Beauty as I struggled with self-worth for many years.. Then, watching how people we're touched by what being made, I knew what my mission in life would be- a Singer that creates music for a Cause. That was so much more fulfilling to me than any other type of position as a singer for pure entertainment. I'm don't want to just creating music, I'm here to create a message from the voiceless that stimulates the desire inside someone's heart, to go out and make a difference- that's my life mission.
