Indie Holiday Gifts Days 5&6

With so many independent artists, there’s a variety of unique gifts you can give. I’ll highlight one a day through the New Year! I got a little behind, but these special treats should make up for it!

Day 5

Day 6

The Coffee Bean 4 Kids Campaign

The Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf may not be “Indie,” but their holiday campaign with The Help Group, a nonprofit school serving children with various special needs*, certainly is!

$1 from every purchase of these items goes directly to help the many programs available at The Help Group. There are so many, it’s hard to keep track, but something for everyone.

Bullying in the Arts Ep3 – Gabe Eggerling from “Jedi Camp”

On last week’s Web Series Watch, Patty J. Robinson told me about Jedi Camp, a web series about bullying. I offered to interview the creator but he suggested the kids!

Today’s interviewee, Gabe Eggerling makes me feel like a slacker. And he’s the voice of Shroeder!

WED 12pm PT

Gabe Eggerling @GabeSays

He worked with singer Tyler Hilton (of One Tree Hill) to make a music video about bullying (with over 100,000 views, and spoke at a red carpet event in La to raise awareness and funds for bullying…and he was only 7 years old!  He is in a documentary coming out this winter called “Heroes don’t wear Capes” which talks about inner strength alongside Olympic gold medal winner Tyler McGill.  He has been honored in the celebrity book 100 Making a Difference with First Lady Michelle Obama, and is working on his nonprofit Mission: HERO.
