Speaking to the documentary, CEO & Founder of Charity Bomb Matthew Leone explains, “Our flagship documentary personifies the entirety of Charity Bomb and the beautiful individual parts that compose it. It’s powerful, entertaining, poignant and honest, which also happen to define what we wanted our organization to be from the genesis.”
Last month, Charity Bomb presented Strange 80s 3D, the third annual Strange 80s benefit concert at the Fonda Theatre in Los Angeles, CA. Donations from previous Strange 80s concerts have benefitted “320 Changes Directions”, Talinda Bennington’s mental health initiative, serving those who suffer from mental health, depression and addiction issues. Donations can be made to Take My Hand – (320 Changes Direction) Mental Health Campaign – here: bit.ly/CBTakeMyHand Donors who text the code “TAKEMYHAND” to 44-321 will see the campaign page as well.
