An extraordinary line-up of game-changing cannabis personalities, activists, actors, musicians, athletes, journalists and brands have banded together for Chronic Relief (www.farechild.com/chronicrelief) – the free groundbreaking telethon live-web broadcast with 100% of all funds raised via donation given to Feeding America COVID-19 Response Fund (501c3). Uniting the global cannabis community in celebration of 4/20 by bringing entertainment, words of encouragement, and the giving spirit to those in need; famed cannabis event producers Dave Tran and James Zachodni of Farechild Events, Seattle-based Atomic Studios, and award-winning branding agency Wick & Mortar, along with a host of partners, come together to support those facing hunger as a result of COVID-19.
Kicking off Monday, April 20, 2020, from 12 PM to 5 PM PST, the organizers of Chronic Relief look to make this 4/20 the most iconic celebration in the cannabis community’s history, making a lasting impact where it matters most. As all major 4/20 outdoor celebrations have been canceled, the organizers took the opportunity to leverage long-standing partnerships and friendships through their vast network of supporters and sponsors to capture a large audience of virtual cannabis enthusiasts in support of a unified cause – helping the Feeding America network of food banks as they support communities and families impacted by the pandemic. Households facing hunger may be more susceptible to the virus, further contributing to the demands placed on food banks. Your donation will enable food banks to serve the most vulnerable members of the community and our neighbors in need during this difficult time. The event will be live-streamed on Twitch, YouTube, Facebook, and more.
A list of confirmed guests to be revealed soon. Stay tuned.
“We’re at the threshold of an extreme moment of need in our human existence,” said Dave Tran organizer of the event and executive producer of the Chronic Relief broadcast. “There’s countless families who are surviving this crisis hungry, scared and unsupported. We have the network, we have the passion, we have the technology to raise awareness. Most importantly Feed America needs the funding to do their incredible work during this crisis. The support we’ve received from the cannabis media and industry community is remarkable. James and I’s phones are blowing up with everyone asking, ‘What can I do and how can I help?’ We hope our viewers all over the country will do the same on 4/20.”
