THE UNITY CAR AUCTION
We are pleased to announce that on May 17th, 2017 we are auctioning off The Unity Car for the Music Therapy Department of Beacon Children's Hospital (formerly known as Memorial Children's Hospital) The auction will go live at 3:00PM (EST). Since the hospital is a non-for-profit we will be donating 100% of the proceeds that we raise from The Unity Car auction into The Music Therapy Department to help keep their music therapist on full-time.

The Unity Collective is a peace movement started from our tiny apartment in Brooklyn, New York. Our mission is to cultivate radical inclusivity and unity for all people through our music and touring vehicle.
In January of 2016 my husband Nathaniel and I left NYC and spent 365 days on the road performing and touring to all 50 states performing 200 shows, and at the conclusion of our shows we invited everyone to sign their message of unity on The Unity Car.
Each day our goal is to to build a community based around radical inclusivity for all persons in America regardless of race, religion, gender, socioeconomic status, or sexual orientation.
In October of 2016 we concluded the 50 state Unity Collective USA tour and May 17th 2017 we will auction The Unity Car off on eBay and donate 100% of the proceeds to The Music Therapy Department at Beacon Children Hospital (formerly known as Memorial Children's Hospitals).
This hospital is near and dear to our hearts especially because we have had the privilege to perform music for these beautiful children.
If you could see the smiles on their faces just once as the music moves through them you would feel a lasting joy. Last month Beacon Children Hospital launched their exciting new 100,00 square-foot state of the art children's hospital. Since they are a non-for-profit it can be difficult to keep the music therapist on full time which is why we are raising funds from The Unity Car auction to help keep her on staff.
On January 2nd, 2016 we launched The Unity Collective USA from NYC and set out in our 2002 Volvo with 273,000 miles on it to tour all fifty-states of America as The Unity Collective USA. By the end of the tour "The Unity Car" will become a collective art piece and a symbol of hope.
Our goal with “The Unity Collective USA” is to perform uplifting music in every state inviting new and old fans to sign the outside of “The Unity Car” with their message of peace and unity. Join us on tour. Our official hashtag is #unity4all
