Many of you may not of heard of Father Bob. By complete mistake, he became a media-personality Catholic Priest, adored by Australians because of his no bollocks approach to faith and people.
Father Bob (Maguire) has launched a crowd-funding campaign via Pozible to help raise funds over Easter to feed the homeless with ‘Father Bob Sings for a Million’ campaign.
The Catholic Priest is asking people to make a donation in return for a number of ‘rewards’, with people able to suggest a song for Bob to sing via social media by tweeting or posting on Instagram or Facebook the choice of song along with the hashtag #songs4bob.
At the end of the month long campaign, the best suggestions will be selected and Bob will record and release an album with those who donate $25 to receive one of the first copies upon its release.
“At this time of year, we normally surround ourselves with family. My foundation is the family for the unloved and unlovely and we leave no one behind,” said Father Bob.
“We wanted to try something new to raise some money so they’ve talked me into ‘singing for everyone’s supper’ – I’ve been practicing in the shower and I’ve already recorded one song to get people’s attention.
“We hope that people will feel good about helping others this holiday season.”
