As 2020 came to an end, we joined forces with radio station New York’s Country 94.7 and singer-songwriter Teddy Robb to help provide comfort and warmth to those in need during the holiday season. For each purchase of our ‘be kind.’ beanie, we donated another to homeless shelters in New York City. Learn all about the project and even how our founder’s nephew, Bobby got involved to help us make a difference in the video below. The purchase also gave you access to an exclusive Teddy Robb show.
Wednesday (January 6th) was the special show with Robb and in these crazy times, it was nice to feel a little bit of normalcy with a live show, even if it was virtual on Zoom.
The concert started off with our own Stephanie Wagner and Christina Bosch along with Jesse Addy from New York’s Country 94.7 discussing teaming up for this wonderful cause. During the course of the campaign, we packed and shipped each order and sent several boxes of donated beanies to various homeless shelters in New York. A big shout out to anyone who purchased a beanie and helped complete our goal of donating over 250 beanies!
Robb then joined in and talked about what it meant for him to be a part of such a special campaign. Currently, Robb is promoting his first single to head to country radio, “Heaven On Dirt”. Throughout the entire campaign, the song could be heard on New York’s Country 94.7 while radio hosts reminded listeners of the special ‘be kind.’ initiative.
Getting ready for the set to start, the zoom room was a sea of guests rocking their special ‘be kind.’ pompom beanies. Teddy Robb started out just him and his guitar playing his song, “Me On You”, followed by “Lead Me On”. Robb then teased a brand new song, yet to be released “Whiskey Can’t”. Finishing out the night with his radio single “Heaven On Dirt”, everyone was dancing and singing along in their living rooms as if they were at their favorite concert venue.
One of our favorite parts of these exclusive zoom concerts is that the artist has the chance to really interact with their fans, watching their reaction to new music, shouting them out, and reading and answering questions through the chat. It gave fans a chance to really show their love for Teddy Robb and we loved seeing it!
We can’t thank Teddy Robb enough for teaming up with us and New York’s Country 94.7! Although the show has come and gone, we will keep the campaign running and continue to donate a beanie for each sold through the winter. Grab yours here.
