Let's get Amber this dog!
Dear friends of the Banjo Babes,
You all know Amber Rogers and her incredible music from our compilation albums. If you are able, we are kindly asking for donations directly to Amber Rogers for her to buy a service dog so that she is able to safely leave her house. Two years ago, she was treated for Lymes Disease from a tick bite from her wedding day, and has since developed a LIFE THREATENING peanut allergy. One molecule of peanut dust has sent her to the hospital numerous times over the past year. This dog is the only viable option at the moment to bring some safety and mobility back into her life. THANK YOU FOR SUPPORTING AS YOU ARE ABLE.

JOIN US FOR THE FUNDRAISER FESTIVAL ONLINE TODAY!
Come to the first-ever Facebook Live Benefit Festival, held wherever you have internet access!

Folk musicians from around the country will perform music via Facebook Live on Sunday, March 10 for Amber's Peanut Dog Facebook Live Benefit Festival.
The festival is a benefit event for Amber Rogers-Clark, a musician from Kansas, who developed a life-threatening peanut allergy as a result of a tick bite a couple years ago.
As mentioned, Amber is now extremely sensitive to peanut residue. She has been unable to go in public, much less perform music, without risk of serious reactions. She has had multiple hospitalizations and is desperate for relief from the constant fear of lingering, unseeable peanut residue.
Her team has determined that the only way for her to experience normal life again is to have a pooch that can sniff out any trace peanut particles ahead of her. She is working with a dog trainer and hopes to get her dog in the next few months!
The cost of such a highly-trained dog is not cheap: $15,000. Amber and her team have raised $10,960.
In this virtual festival, the musicians are performing on Facebook Live for free - all we ask is that you send a few dollars to Amber's PayPal to help Amber get her peanut dog.
We have chosen to do this event via Facebook for several reasons:
1. Amber can't leave the house, so this way she can attend safely.
2. Amber has friends across the country, so this way they can all attend.
3. Amber has musician friends across the country, so this way they can donate their time to help her without the extra expense of driving to Kansas.
4. Amber is a musician, so it seemed fitting to have a musical event in her honor!
Enjoy LIVE performances from these artists who are based around the country! All times below are in Central Time.
