More About The Collaborators

partnered with the John Lennon Educational Tour Bus to transition the bus to lithium power providing a new level of sustainability, cost-savings, and improved experience with up to eight hours of runtime off the batteries alone, plus extended runtime with the availability of solar power. The integration of Battle Born Batteries puts sustainability at the forefront and allowed the removal of the previous heavy and toxic lead acid batteries, making the The John Lennon Educational Tour Bus a much greener vehicle.

a nonprofit mobile recording facility provides hands-on experiences for students of all ages and is committed to providing youth, communities, and schools across the nation with free events, workshops, interactive experiences, and hands-on opportunities to create original audio, video, and broadcast projects that reflect their ideas and inspirations. Dragonfly supports The John Lennon Educational Tour Bus to become sustainable, this partnership is what has brought the John Lennon Music Bus to the Reno area and opened the doors for the music video collaboration.

For more than 100 years, Big Brothers Big Sisters has operated under the belief that inherent in every child is the ability to succeed and thrive in life. As the nation’s largest donor- and volunteer-supported mentoring network, Big Brothers Big Sisters makes meaningful, monitored matches between adult volunteers (Bigs) and children (Littles), ages 6 through 18, in communities across the country.

The RennerVation Foundation has an existing partnership with the local chapter through its Founder and involvement with the RennerVations show (Disney+) and worked with the organization to provide the 6 – 8 youth to participate in the The John Lennon Educational Tour Bus program.


The RennerVation Foundation is dedicated to serving children in foster care and at-risk youth by providing them with a safe haven and targeted programs to develop their skills, confidence and opportunities. Because of the Foundation’s focus on supporting disadvantaged youth by providing joyful and educational opportunities, the collaboration aligned perfectly with the mission of The John Lennon Educational Tour Bus and the Foundation.
