(Oklahoma City, Okla) — In the spirit of Giving Tuesday, the largest international day of giving, Red Dirt Relief Fund is proud to collaborate with musicians across the state to bring live tunes to fans in a campaign called #GivingTunesday.
On Tuesday, December 3rd, Oklahoma musicians across all musical genres and geographies will perform live on their Facebook and Instagram pages to thank fans for their support of local music and the nonprofit that benefits artists in crisis, Red Dirt Relief Fund. Fans are encouraged to LIKE and FOLLOW the participating musicians’ social media pages in advance so they’ll be notified when musicians share their tunes.
That same evening, Red Dirt Relief Fund will stream live performances from The Blue Door located at 2805 N. McKinley Ave. in Oklahoma City on their Facebook page starting at 8:00pm. Tickets to this event are free, but limited, and can be reserved at https://www.eventbrite.com/e/giving-tunesday-2019-tickets-82820134251?utm-medium=discovery&utm-campaign=social&utm-content=attendeeshare&aff=escb&utm-source=cp&utm-term=listing. Donations will be taken at the door.

Red Dirt Relief Fund will also be encouraging donations on Facebook, as the social media platform will match up to $7 million starting at 7:00 am CST on December 3, 2019. All donations made through Facebook are fee free meaning 100 percent goes to the nonprofit organization.
Last year #GivingTunesday raised more than $7,000 for Oklahoma musicians in crisis through the nonprofit Red Dirt Relief Fund. RDRF has granted more than $170,000 to Oklahoma music people across genres and geographies since it was founded in 2012.
#GivingTuesday unites countries around the world by sharing our capacity to care for and empower one another. Celebrated on the Tuesday following Thanksgiving (in the U.S.) and the widely recognized shopping events Black Friday and Cyber Monday, #GivingTuesday harnesses the potential of social media and the generosity of people around the world to bring about real change in their communities; it provides a platform for them to encourage the donation of time, resources and talents to address local challenges.
