Jewel will be hosting Live From San Quarantine: A Livestream Concert via Instagram and Facebook, to raise funds for her Never Broken program powered by the Inspiring Children Foundation. A planned fundraising event was cancelled, so she's hoping that taking her cause directly to homebound viewers will help raise $1.8 million. The concert happens today at 5pm.
Jewel's website offers access to help for at-risk youth with housing, food, clothing, necessities, and mentoring, as well as physical, emotional, mental, and health tools. Her online networking community Inspire House will be offering daily livestream programming on Twitch, including yoga, meditation, fitness, nutrition, and leadership talks to help people get through the COVID-19 pandemic.
"Tune into this post tonight to see the premiere of the live music broadcast of Facebook Open Mic while quarantined," says Fritz Jensen of Puttin' On the Fritz. "I will be playing, check me out with all the other great musicians."
