ME FOR FREE

For the last couple years hundreds of people have sponsored children through Compassion International at my concerts. No manipulation. No pictures of starving children. No pressure. Just more than an hour of music and seven minutes of me telling about my experience sponsoring a child named Yanci.

It's a highly effective way of matching kids in tremendous need with folks willing to feed, clothe and teach them.

To make certain our partnership with Compassion continues through those lean scary concert months of January through March, we're making you a deal: Me for free.

The catch? All you have to do to book me for free is allow me to talk for about seven minutes about Compassion International and let me set up a sponsorship table. That's it.

To be clear, the concert is free to promoters. I play for free. If you book me you will need to provide a hotel room and meals for the day. That's the deal. No fine print.

Interested? Contact Brian quickly at 615.566.3232 or by e-mail at thehummingbirdagency@charter.net.

A national magazine ad campaign launched this week to promote this offer so act fast. Calls are already coming in.

Whew! Glad I got on board before the media blitz began. Are you ready and pumped for Wichita?

Has Brian told you what we want to do? It's going to be pretty flipping awesome.

This isn't "Derek Webb Free" is it?

Just kidding, Shuan. I will pass this on.

Kristen? Eric? I'll help... : )
I've emailed this information to our church, too but haven't heard anything back yet.

Brian made the same joke, Brody. I actually considered saying the concert is free with the email addresses of five friends...but that's just...something you would do.
