The 12 Bands of Christmas is a not for profit organization committed to our mission of combining the universal appeal of music with the universal spirit of giving to support the fight against pediatric cancer.
Based in Augusta, Georgia, 12 Bands got its start with a local Christmas concert featuring 12 area artists. A few years later a CD featuring the holiday music was added to the event that raised money for a local Children’s Hospital.
In 2010, The 12 Bands of Christmas was incorporated as its own 501(c)(3) organization and launched a yearlong campaign to raise awareness and funds for research as well as immediate patient needs. Why a yearlong campaign about Christmas – because children fighting cancer need the Christmas spirit with them throughout the year.
