A Free Bird

A Free Bird is a 501(C)(3) non-profit organization based in New York City. Our focus is to provide children, ages 4-18 who are patients or survivors of juvenile cancer, the opportunity to explore their artistic passions and give them the strength to fight their disease. We believe that artistic expression is critical for healing! A Free Bird supports children affected by cancer in their exploration of art, music, acting, poetry, writing, singing, and any other artistic passion they may have.

This Program deals with businesses who are interested in joining with A Free Bird. Things such as product placement can occur with A Free Bird, getting a large portion of the proceeds for a certain time period. This requires a lot of patience and persistence from the individual who wants to be the Coordinator. Reaching out via email, phone, and speaking to companies and following up with companies that you did not receive an answer from. Thinking outside of the box, we are looking for someone who has the ability to come up with incentives for companies to collaborate with A Free Bird and how they will benefit from working with us.

A Free Bird is building our services even in this difficult time of the coronavirus to provide the best services to the children and are looking for self-motivated and hardworking individuals. Proper at-home working capabilities include Laptop, SmartPhone, and connection to WiFi/internet. Must be available to have a phone/video conversation at least once per week.
