If you have social media, you may see some interesting ways those that make a living off their abilities have decided to try and continue to make said living. Specific to Facebook, some DJs have taken to hosting virtual events. I found DJ Kopec doing exactly that!
DJ Kopec is from the greater D.C. area and a great disc jockey! His mix of throwbacks to today’s hits, all blended in masterful transitions is amazing to hear. Anytime he starts a playlist, I can’t help but dance!
What this quarantine has brought out in many people is philanthropy. We all want to play our part by helping our fellow man, but as we see too often, we, as humans, fall short. During this time of uncertainty, there are those that have risen to the challenge.
Introducing DJ Kopec!
He has hosted many dance parties on Facebook, starting soon after the quarantine. At first I thought his events were just for him to make money, but as I watched and listened to his set, I realized it was so much more!
DJ Kopec has hosted these live events for many causes during this crisis, including raising money for organizations like Feeding America, as well as donations of chicken, eggs, and bread to local food banks. Sometimes there is sponsor with a challenge, like how many viewers will he receive, or how many t-shirts will he sell. Other times, there are announcements of angels pledging donations. He’s not just looking to make a pay day for himself (he does have his own virtual tip jar), but he’s using his skills and helping those in need.
Everytime I jump onto one of his events, he has at least 7,000 viewers and more people donating what they can. It is one of the greatest testaments to goodwill I have ever seen in my life, and I find it amazing that I get to take part of it, just by dancing!
Check DJ Kopec out, and join his next live virtual event!
