World Education University to Stream Highlights from 2014 Life is Beautiful Festival, 10/24-26
World Education University (WEU) is pleased to present the first-ever high-definition streaming event featuring select highlights from Life is Beautiful, a music, food, art and learning festival that takes place in Downtown Las Vegas October 24, 25 and 26, 2014. Designed as a fully interactive social experience, the premium HD streaming event will last several hours on each day of the festival showcasing concerts, culinary demonstrations, art exhibitions and learning events on four vertical HD channels.
Purposed as a fundraiser to support education and youth empowerment initiatives, the premium streaming event will be available to the public on a donation-per-view basis benefitting World Trust Foundation, a 501c3 nonprofit tasked with empowering young people with mentoring and educational opportunity since 1994. In cooperation with iRock2Live PSA Music Series Pledge Drives for Education, e-tickets to the Life is Beautiful streaming event will also be available at participating schools throughout the U.S. to support school fundraising efforts.
In addition to showcasing highlights from the Life is Beautiful Festival, the streaming event aims to inspire audiences using the galvanizing power of music and arts combined with public service announcements (PSAs) and fully interactive social media integration. Delivered by popular artists, the PSAs promote important causes such as anti-bullying, don't text and drive, suicide prevention and healthy choices. Streaming audiences will be invited to share experiences in their social networks or express "Your Voice, Your Choice" by answering the question, "What will you do to change the world?"
Conceived as a healthy alternative to traditional candy-centric school pledge drives, the 2014 iRock2Live PSA Music Series Pledge Drive is a unique fundraising program that promotes team-building and encourages students to rally around causes that impact their world. Like traditional school pledge drives, students solicit pledge donations, but instead of selling candy or cookie dough, they sell e-tickets to the streaming events. The pledge drive takes place October 6th through 20th at schools throughout the U.S. A significant portion of proceeds will be retained by participating schools. Remaining proceeds will be sent directly to World Trust Foundation to support education and youth empowerment initiatives.
E-tickets are available for a $20 donation-per-view at WorldTrust.org. A non-premium free stream will also be available on the Life is Beautiful Website, where viewers will have the option to upgrade to the premium stream by making a donation.
