Healing Power of Music
HPM is the Charitable performing arm for RFM Music and works with area artists, placing them in area hospitals where they perform free, acoustic concerts for either individuals or groups. The healing power of music is vast, wonderful, and as we know, untapped. Music has the ability to change a person's thinking as well as their physiology. Become a part of HPM today by following the link. Join as an artist, add yourself as a friend and buy a tee shirt (sporting the HPM logo) and help support the cause financially. Remember...never underestimate the power of a song!
Athens Dust Bowl Collective
Most folks know about the ongoing and worsening drought situation here in GA. Lest we forget, Woody Guthrie immortalized the dust bowl by writing songs about the people and times in that era. A number of Athens’ musicians are getting together to perform Woody’s songs (and others) for a Dust Bowl Benefit November 27, at the world-famous 40-Watt Club. We’ll be raising awareness, promoting water conservation and raising funds and support to assist families with water conservation products. Sponsors include the Georgia River Network and REM. Check out info, sponsors, musicians and more by going to our growing web site: The Athens Dust Bowl Benefit. Come if you can. Send a message of encouragement if you can’t.
Armed Forces Entertainment
VH1 - Save The Music Foundation
VH1 Save The Music purchases new musical instruments to restore music education programs that have been cut due to budget reductions in the past or to save programs at risk of elimination due to lack of instruments. The Foundation also conducts awareness campaigns, musical instrument drives and fundraising events. This is a program I believe in, wholeheartedly. Please check it out and get involved.
Music That Heals
A truly remarkable organization based out of NY. They provide musical entertainment to seriously ill and culturally denied children. This is a cause that I passionately support. Please visit them online and make a donation. Money well-spent!
Acoustic Outreach
This was the first organization that I got involved with. AO is a GA based org that does a number of things, one of which is help artists find creative ways to help young people enjoy live music who may not otherwise have the chance. It's wonderful. Check this out and step up to the your part and get involved with these folks.
