Brian Kurtz is a busy guy. He has a day job; he runs his own local record label, Limited Fanfare; he sends really awesome care packages; and he's setting up an online auction to provide funds for Music Saves Lives
. The organization educates people on blood disorders and the importance of donating marrow and blood. It works with the entertainment community to raise awareness and lets fans give in a way that is easy and musically rewarding.
"I chose to work with Music Saves Lives because of their
passion for using music as a catalyst to get people involved -- either
donating blood to save lives or just to make people aware of the impact
that they can have as an individual," Kurtz says. "Plus they give really great
benefits to people for doing so." This includes stuff like Free Warped Tour tickets.
