Can it be…December?
Like me, I'm sure most of you are thinking, where did November go?
First, I want to send out a big heartfelt thank you to everyone who showed up for my birthday show at the Dakota…it was so special. I feel so fortunate to have such a supported community of people who continue to show up to hear me sing!!!…thank you.
Now on to December…
We have our shows at The Parkway Theater on Dec 15th & 16th that are SOLD OUT(!!) thanks to you…but then the Parkway came to me and asked if I wanted to play on Thursday, Dec 14th, and I said, “hell yeah!”
Then let's do something a little different, so I'm proudly announcing…
Tina Schlieske + Friends' VaJamma
Party with a purpose! PERIOD.
The holidays should be a time of giving, and we wanted to do some giving back. We wanted to pick something that may be a little overlooked. So we decided to do a
menstrual product and diaper drive!
There are toy drives, food shelves, and clothes donations that are so important during this time but I'm hoping we can show some love to this purpose too! PERIOD.
Women living in shelters or below the poverty line have to make tough choices. Whether it’s using some pretty unsanitary means each month or choosing to feed their families instead of spending money on their monthly needs, it just isn’t right for anyone to be put in that position.
This is not just a women’s issue; this is a human issue. I want the men to be just as proud of making their donations. There is no shame here! This benefits us all, making the world healthier and giving people the fundamental dignity we all deserve!
And to top it off, we have a pretty spectacular evening of talent lined up…a full star-studded affair!
Joining the party are; Molly Maher, Mary Bue, Becky Kapell, Barb Brynstad (turn, Turn, Turn), Jenny Case (Flamin’ Oh’s, She Rock, She Rock), Davina Lozier (Davina and the Vagabonds), Jaedyn James, Kelley Smith, Mae Simpson (Mae Simpson Band), Alyse Emanuel, and Quatro!!
Oh, and there will also be a sing-a-long and I’m working on some really fun giveaways, so stay tuned!
I promise you that giving tampons, pads, and diapers never felt so good.
That's about it…If I don't see you at a show or two, I wish you and yours a very happy, healthy, full of love and joy with whatever holiday you celebrate…until then, go gently, be good to yourselves and to all around you…we all have our stuff we are dealing with…Happy Holidays…t
MERCH ALERT!!…we have our Blue Sky T-Shirts, Hats, and Koozies are all back in stock…get 'em while you can!! Go HERE to get yours!
