Team Up for Nonprofits is a Seattle-based organization with a mission to integrate social media and nonprofits to build the capacity of charity groups. They aim to cultivate engagement from young people using social media and music through their Gigs4Good benefit events. These concerts are a great way to raise awareness and funds for their charity partners . A recent concert promotion features three of the best local bands in Seattle and raised money for the PAWS animal charity. Handful of Luvin’, The Local Strangers and Jubilee , itself a nonprofit band, will all be on hand at the Tractor Tavern in Ballard to support PAWS mission of rehabilitating injured wildlife and finding good homes for abandoned dogs and cats. The music will range from fiddle driven rock to tropical influenced beats and alternative country.
