In celebration of Black History Month, Looped is looking back on HAM4CHANGE, the three-day virtual fundraiser organized by the original Broadway cast of Hamilton.
HAM4CHANGE successfully raised over $1.1 million dollars for nine non-profit organizations working to fight racial injustice and end systemic racism in America. The event sold 15,500+ livestream tickets and 1,000+ Virtual Meet & Greets with 35 cast members, including the show’s creator, Lin-Manuel Miranda, on Looped.
The nine supported organizations, which were personally chosen by the cast, included:
When We All Vote, LEAP (Law Enforcement Accountability Project), BEAM (Black Emotional And Mental Health Collective), Until Freedom, Color of Change, Dance 4 Hope, Know your Rights Camp, BAI (Black Aids Institute) and African American Policy Forum.
This unique virtual event paired philanthropy with fun: sharing never-before-told cast stories, behind-the-scenes clips, trivia, live dance breaks, and their favorite fan cosplay costumes, all the while helping to educate donors on the importance of supporting the Black community and the fight to end racial injustice.
Looped was honored to help bring the Hamilton cast’s virtual fundraiser vision to life with HAM4CHANGE and support the fight to end systemic racism. To learn more about this event, check out screenshots from the livestream events and the highlight videos below:
