Battle of the Bands to Support Trees for Tibet
In March of this year, three high school students from Dallas, Texas—JJ Echaniz, Kevin Chan, and David Chi—first learned about the Trees for Tibet project. Inspired by the simple yet powerful mission of planting trees in the Tibetan refugee settlements, the three put their heads together to try to figure out how they could support the cause. As a group of friends with lots of musical talent, they decided to form an organization that would utilize their musical skills and inspire more involvement from other people in their age group.
“We founded SoundsOfSupport, a non-profit organization that strives to channel the talents of young local musicians into avenues that can truly benefit charitable causes, both on a local and international scale… Our first project is the Trees for Tibet Battle of the Bands on August 27 in Carrollton, Texas,” writes JJ.
The big event is this Saturday from 7-11:30pm at the Rock (2435 E Hebron Pkwy Carrollton, Texas 75010). Six bands will be preforming and the event is almost sold out! Whether you’re in Dallas or elsewhere, let’s show our support for these incredibly inspiring young men:
