Off Beat Merch co is partnering with Musicians Making A Difference (MMAD) - an Australian charity that exists to change young lives through music.
MMAD believes that every young person deserves someone who believes in them and the opportunity to live their potential. MMAD uses the power of creative mentoring to inspire, educate and empower young people to make their lives remarkable.
MMAD also provide creative support to young people, (especially those who have suffered emotional abuse, neglect and disadvantage) in overcoming challenges such as mental health issues, homelessness, destructive patterns of behaviour, exclusion from school, family breakdown, drug and alcohol dependency, unemployment, disconnection from community or culture and reoffending.
MMAD’s goal is not only to break negative cycles, but to empower young people to go on and make their own difference within the community. Many young people impacted by MMAD have found positive new direction by pursuing a career in the arts or using their own talents to give back and help shape the lives of others who experience hardship.
Off Beat Merch are proud to be partnering with MMAD! In support of this amazing cause, $1 from each piece of merch sold will go directly to the MMAD cause: using the power of music to inspire the next generation to overcome personal adversity and rise up to become that same inspiration for other young people facing similar hardship.
