Justin “3LAU” Blau, ranking #3 on BeatPort’s overall chart, and with ten “Top 10” spots on Hype Machine, recently announced his plans to work in partner with Pencils of Promise. 3LAU is raising another $25,000 for Pencils of Promise by donating $1 from every ticket at 22 dates of his 3LAU Your Mind Tour.After the release of his remix for “Back To New,” the house music DJ pledged to donate all proceeds from the sale of the track to Pencils of Promise. “’Back to New’ Gives Back to PoP” was a global initiative by 3LAU to raise $25,000 for Pencils of Promise (PoP), a non-profit organization that builds schools for underprivileged children in developing nations such as Guatemala, Laos, and Nicaragua.
“Education is a right that all human begins should have,” reiterates Blau, “yet there are 75 million children just like us without access to it. I’m ready to help that change. Let’s harness the power of the dance music movement to give something real: to give back.”
Within 48 hours of the song’s release, 3LAU achieved 20% of his goal and as of June 21 he had raised the entire $25,000 needed to build the first school.
3LAU is also back on tour and back to fundraising. He has teamed up with his 100,000+ Facebook fans to raise the necessary $25,000 to build yet another school and bring awareness to global education. For his next tour he has pledged that over the course of 22 shows on tour he will donate $1 from each ticket sold. Blau is calling upon his fans to help him accomplish his goal by joining the 3LAU fundraising group and creating their own Impossible Challenge.
