I went to one of their events with some friends. One of the bands we liked was playing. We weren't expecting much but when we left, we were educated on some issues that were important to us and we had a great time at the show!

I was introduced to Bands for Lands about 6 months ago. Jeremy, the founder of the organization, is truly an amazing visionary that is passionate about sustainability and conservation through engaging events. The Rock Paper Scissor Tournaments I've been a part of are always a great time with great bands playing.

the energy. It's always exciting to be a part of whatever this organization might be putting together.

Jeremy and his team are great. They are positive, enthusiastic individuals.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

continue to put together amazing events. Additional funds would be able to support more staff allowing them to not only dream of ideas to continue to support the mission statement, but also execute on those dreams.

I have been introduced to BFL through mutual friends and have been amazed at how much of my local interests have been influenced by this Nonprofit! I have been to events they have hosted, supported, or simply because I knew like-minded friends would be there. Every experience has been a good one – truly! I cannot think of many other organizations that I am excited to share with others. I feel honored that BFL is a local charity (for me); I can help out on a deeper level, and that the results are tangible.

More Feedback

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

Helping be the liason between a College campus and the organization. I have been lucky to work with several BFL members and others in the community to help realize common goals.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

the fun that is had while always learning something.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

absolutely respectful of one-another, the community, and the world as a whole! Respect runs deep - and as a parent I can attest that I am proud to have such a good role model of an organization for the community.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

help recruit more people, volunteers, and sponsors to realize the many ideas that would truly benifit our community.
