For immediate release:

In addition to the release of the first photo book about The International Blues Challenge, at The IBC 2015 Jenn Ocken also set up a program called “Get a Book, Give a Book” that allowed purchasers to buy a second book as donations that were handed out to each of the 103 young participants taking part in the 2015 IBC Youth Showcase held on January 23 in multiple clubs on Beale Street.

Each child received their own personally signed copy at Youth Showcase check-in the New Daisy Theatre the Friday of IBC 2015.

The purpose of the "Get a Book, Give a Book" campaign is to give the kids a history lesson, empower the youth to dream bigger, fuel their passion, and #SupportFutureBlues.

Although every child received their copy at The 2015 IBC, the dBlues team could still use your help funding the rest of the books!

No matter what number you can commit to, know that by challenging your friends and family to buy a book too, you are together doubling the contribution! And the KIDS win big time!

20% of the proceeds will be donated to The Blues Foundation's Generation Blues Fund!

You can purchase a book for a kid to the left, or in our dBlues Store.
