We launched a GoFundMe for Grant (aka G’itis Baggs) with the help of our friends Seth Bernard and Bradley Bacon. Grant is a brilliant and unique songwriter, and an astoundingly prolific creator. We booked time at La Luna Recording & Sound in Kalamazoo for February, and have a great team of musicians playing on the album.
Amazingly, we met our goal in two days! All the additional funds are going to G’itis living his best life, between supporting supplemental releases and his overall health and wellness.
Thank you so so much to everyone who donated, shared on social media, and gave us kind words of encouragement these past two weeks!
In January 2020, Grant Littler, known artistically as G’itis Baggs, temporarily lost the use of his right hand and leg while driving and was forced to crash his vehicle to prevent harming others.
He survived the accident, but only after a year of increasing traumatic symptoms was it discovered that he had terminal brain cancer. He has been given, hopefully, three years to live by specialists at the Mayo Clinic.
We are organizing an effort to make a magnificent album featuring some of G’itis’s favorite musicians and dearest friends performing some of his most treasured songs.
We are also raising these funds to support him in documenting and sharing his vast catalogue of brilliant original music. Your support will help a great human being focus on his art and give a beautiful gift to the world before he takes the next courageous step in his journey.
This is an opportunity to be a part of something very meaningful to everyone involved. Thank you for your support.
