MAGIT, COLYAK Organic Beslenme Derneği and TEV. To continue our mission and raise more funds, TPF launched the #KeepHopeAlive Music Marathon to be hosted on a live stream broadcasted on our social media channels on Tuesday May 5th, 2020 from 8:00 am EST to 12:00 am EST. With this campaign TPF joins many organizations around the world on #GivingTuesday’s Global Unity Day for Covid-19.
We will be joined by various artists such as musicians, singers, composers, and DJs to raise awareness of our organization, impact, and COVID-19 Community Relief Fund campaign.
Help us to expand the TPF community by sharing the campaign and the music marathon.
We hope to gather virtually to celebrate another successful #GivingTuesday alongside many other organizations who are fighting to keep hope alive during these uncertain times brought on by COVID-19.
