You, too, can change the world: you don’t need to play trumpet or dissect a brain

causes, events, music therapy

We all help the world in different ways. I suppose the special skill set I have to offer the universe includes quirky things like dissecting brains with kids, or attempting to rock the minds of adults. I try.

One of my fave causes is Boys & Girls Clubs, for they help young people — especially those who need us most — to become productive, caring, responsible beings.

Last weekend, KD & The Painkillers (a band I perform in) played at a fundraiser for Boys & Girls Clubs of Larimer County.

If you missed the show but would like to change the world by donating to BGCs of Larimer, click here.

Last spring, I dissected a brain with the kiddos at Boys & Girls Club of Cheyenne:

Amen. Aye, men.
