Audio For All's Blog
After several very generous contributions during the past week, we are super excited to announce that we have reached our goal of funding our business loan through the Kiva crowdsourcing platform! Thank you so much to everyone who contributed. We are extremely grateful for your investment and we endeavor with all of our hearts to make this investment blossom into something spectacular and meaningful for the local community. This loan will immensely help us to meet a higher standard and performance of service.
In addition to this loan we will also be selling off some gear to welcome in the new. We will keep you posted on this page and our blog on how our inventory develops and we are excited to see what the future holds.
Thank you again for investing in a small business and believing in us!

We are super excited to announce that we're partnering with Intersessions LA to provide their students with a special offer on music/ DJ equipment rental. We are offering all Intersessions students 25% off all rentals (until May 1st) with the promo:
We, at Audio For All, will be moving before the end of this month from our downtown location. A new address will be announced soon. In the meantime, continue to email and call us if you have any questions. We are here for you and will go out of our way to get you what you are looking for.
This Thursday I will be attending Intersessions LA.
Intersessions LA (hosted by Restless Nites) is a series of sound workshops curated for and by women & queer folks. At the workshop they will be focused on all things vinyl with DJs Alison Swing & Dave Nada.
I'm going because I want to learn the tricks and the trades in my own practice and business as we look to include more equipment.
If your a woman and/or queer peep who is interested to connect with like minded people and learn the basics of DJing on vinyl, where to buy vinyl, taking care of your vinyl and all the little tricks from these masters of the craft come through :-)
Now WCCW members can support local feminist businesses and reap a bunch of benefits while doing so. One such perk is that we, at Audio For All, are offering to all of its members 15% off of all orders.
Quoted from the WCCW's website:
When we patronize local businesses with feminist values we strengthen our network and help to chip away at the patriarchy, little by little. We know at times it can be less convenient to shop local small businesses, so we want to offer an incentive for our members to get out there and support businesses that share our values!
With our WCCW Network Program, all WCCW members will receive special perks from the following participating feminist businesses in Los Angeles when they present their membership card. Not a member but want the deals? Sign up for membership here for as low as $10 a month!
We are proud to be apart of such an empowering program.
Get your groove on and fight for social justice <3
We are now 20% funded and have officially moved into the public arena where anyone in the world can help out. We have 26 days to acquire the full loan. Please consider contributing at https://www.kiva.org/lend/1228532.
If you live local we will give you a free T-shirt if you email us saying that you have contributed to our cause! Also, did we mention that you your money back!? You do. So you get a free T-shirt, help out a small business, and didn't spend anything. Sounds good to us.
With less than 15 days from the lunch of Tania's Kiva campaign, she reached 15 lenders!
Audio For All is now in the second phase of the campaign and has 28 days to acquire our loan.
Although we are less than half way to realizing this goal, we are so grateful that we are receiving the love and support from all over the country.
We can do this <3
Tania needs only 2 MORE LENDERS to be featured on KIVA's public online page where she can advance Audio For All's Kiva campaign. It takes only 5 minutes or less. Please consider supporting us! Go to https://www.kiva.org/lend/1228532 to learn more about the campaign and how you can help.
