Welcome aboard! My name is Brittany Ann Phillips. I am a freelance voice actress residing Canada looking to bring some hope to families in need this Christmas, will you join me?
I am holding an open singing collaboration to any and all voice actors who would like to get involved in raising some funds that will go to Inn From the Cold, which in turn will help provide more shelter, meals, and warm clothes to those who would not be able to get them on their own.
Why have you decided to fundraise?
Christmas is only a few short months away. It also means that the weather is going to be getting much colder for many people who do not have a permanent place to call home or be able to obtain enough food to eat. No one should have to face that uncertainty. I want to do what I can to ease that burden, even if it’s just a little bit.
Why the Inn From the Cold?
Inn From the Cold is a Canadian group based in Calgary that provides the basic necessities for struggling families whom cannot receive them otherwise, including but not limited to - overnight shelter, food items, clothing, and anything needed for dependent children.
To find out more about them. You can visit their website here: https://innfromthecold.org/
What are you doing to raise money?
I am organizing a group project, where anyone in the voice over community can be a part of. I Saw Three Ships is a Christmas carol that everyone can sing along to as a part of a large chorus.
For every person who contributes in the song, I will personally match them with $5 CAD, up to $500 CAD. If we reach that far, that will be 100 people involved!
On December 24th, 2018 both the donation will be sent and the song will be uploaded for public listening.
How do I get involved?
To participate in the project, all that is required is to record yourself singing the song, I Saw Three Ships and send it to me by December 10th, 2018 11:59 PM CST/CDT. Please read through the link posted below for more information.
If you wish to donate, please send it here by December 20th, 2018 at 11:59 PM CST/CDT.
Do I need to donate before/after to participate?
Absolutely not. There is no donation needed in order to participate. Your willingness to lend your voice is more than enough.
I live outside North America/English is not my first language, am I eligible to submit my recording?
Absolutely, Follow the recording requirements listed in the linked document and you’re good!
I just recently discovered this page, it’s after the deadline, but can I still submit my recording?
Sadly no. After the deadline is when the mixing will begin, that way we will have enough time to release it on December 24th, the same day of the donation!
Where is the payment going?
96% of the raised funds will be sent to Inn From the Cold. It will support the work/programs of where they are needed the most at the time of donation.
4% of the raised funds will paid to GoGetFunding as part their platform hosting fee.
How can I know for sure that my donation will go to Inn From the Cold?
I will be hosting a live streaming event on Twitch, where it will show the process of donating the funds to the Inn From the Cold's online donation web page. The event will take place on Christmas Eve and will be recorded for those who are unable to watch the live event.
I will be posting updates here as we get closer to the date.
Why not just donate by yourself since you are going to donate anyway?
While I certainly can donate by myself offline, my focus here is to bring people from the voice over community together to create something meaningful, something that will bring joy and hope to other people’s lives that one person cannot do by themselves.
