Crew Nation, a charitable organization powered by Music Forward Foundation to support live music crew members, has partnered with delivery platform Roadie. The Atlanta-based crowdsourced platform will make a $1 donation to Crew Nation for every Large, X-Large and Huge Gig delivered through its platform in January.
Founded in 2014, Roadie works with consumers, small businesses and corporations across virtually every industry to provide a faster, cheaper, more scalable solution for scheduled, same-day and urgent delivery. Roadie’s crowdsourced delivery service has a driver community of more than 200,000 active drivers, reaches 89% of U.S. households and is the country’s first nationwide crowdsourced delivery platform that works with consumers, small businesses and big global brands alike to facilitate same-day, local deliveries nationwide. Unlike other platforms that enable food and small package delivery, drivers on Roadie’s platform haul everything from kayaks to couches, paint to puppy food.

“Music unites and inspires us. Whether you’re into Jimmy Buffett or Janelle Monae, The Weeknd or Willie Nelson, you can thank live music crews for bringing your favorite artists to life onstage,” said Roadie Founder and CEO Marc Gorlin. “We were so inspired by roadie culture that we named our company after it; it’s why deliveries on our platform are called ‘Gigs’ and it’s why we’re proud to step in and work with our customers to help give a little back.”
“The live industry was the first to close due to the pandemic, and will likely be one of the last to reopen, so the need for these out-of-work crew members is greater than ever,” said Nurit Smith, Executive Director, Music Forward Foundation. “Thank you to Roadie for pledging your support for Crew Nation, this commitment will go a long way to provide relief for many roadies through this temporary pause.”
