Renewable Energy World - Sept. 17th, 2013
Solar nonprofit and indie rock band join forces to fight crime in Los Angeles: sounds like a movie plot. But this month, clean energy groups Everybody Solar and GRID Alternatives and the band Trapdoor Social have teamed up to help Homeboy Industries, a nonprofit which stops recidivism among former gang members, to go solar. The band is donating all the proceeds from their album’s presale to fund this unique and socially responsible project through the online crowdfunding site Pledge Music.
This partnership will benefit Homeboy Industries by allowing them to direct funds previously needed for their utility bill towards providing job-training, education and mental health services.
