Don’t talk about it – Be about it. For all of those who are disgusted with what’s happening around the world, be a part of the solution by helping those who are on the ground – battling to support and enrich the lives of those in need.
We live in one of the wealthiest places in the world, an although many of us see ourselves as “broke” (no $), it’s no comparison to the poverty stretched throughout the world – and often right in our back yards.
Myself, and many like me, are fighting to provide quality programs to children from at-risk backgrounds. Statistics consistently show that at-risk students who learn an instrument are FAR more likely to make better choices in life.
It’s easy to recognize a problem once it shows itself, but if possible, it’s far more WISE to prevent the problem from happening in the first place. Music education = prevention (and a whole lot more!).
My small, but meaningful contribution to the fight is to help at-risk students become excellent musicians by teaching regularly at the Saint James Music Academy, as well as giving them something meaningful to do during the summer by sending them to the Thrive City String Academy & Boot Camp.
Can you let go of $10 be a part of the solution?
