The Jack the Bear Charity Mastering Drive is an initiative that raises money for various charitable organisations as our way of giving back to the community. These happen on the last Friday of each month. This is how it works You send your track(s) in (we try to limit it to 3 per client to give as many people as possible the same opportunity) to be mastered by Tony “Jack the Bear” personally. You pay a donation of whatever you’re comfortable with and every cent raised will go to a different nominated charity. Some of the charities we have raised money for in the past include….
Asylum Seeker Resource Centre
Free to Shine
The Alannah and Madeline Foundation
MMAD (Musicians Making A Difference)
Domestic Violence Resource Centre Victoria
The Big Umbrella
Melbourne City Mission (Brunswick)
Just Us League
Uniting Care Ballarat (Ice Rehab Centre)
Bali Dog Rehabilitation Centre
We have also provided financial support for struggling musicians for immediate concerns and emergencies like
shortfalls in rent
medical / dental / pharmacy
petrol money etc
