Issue Three: #WHYMUSIC
This issue has largely been dedicated to the theme of music and generosity – a chance for us to look outside of the charitable sector for inspiration and to see what part music plays in the world of generosity. We wanted to explore why it is that music moves us, how generous people use music to do good, and talk to some amazing musos on how they see the world.

Issue Three Editor's note
This publication wouldn't exist if it wasn't for the generosity of our Kiwi musicians. Since 2003 I've been photographing the music scene here in NZ. It's what drew me to Wellington and inspired me to produce a free music publication which was part of the inspiration for starting One Percent Collective and this very Journal that you hold in your hands.
Our quarter of a million dollar donation milestone has been reached thanks to our donors and to the Kiwi musicians who donated more than 1% of their time to bring the Collective together at events. As Warren Maxwell of Trinity Roots once said ‘Music and musicians have the sincere ability to bring people together for an event and in doing so re-create ancient rituals that make a community.’

So go on, grab your headphones, line up some sweet Kiwi tunes and take some time out of your day to dive into our #WhyMusic issue of The Generosity Journal.
