Be Happy & Help Others

Be Happy & Help Others, is a pretty simple message. It’s a slogan I use throughout my life and my music, which I would love to now share with you.

Everyone on this earth wants to be happy. Whether its by attaining great wealth, helping someone else with a problem, or eating a delicious peanut butter sandwich, we do these things to try to fill our lives with happiness. Everyone on this earth also needs help at some point. Whether it’s a kind word, a helping hand or making someone else a peanut butter sandwich haha, we all need help. Helping others makes us happy. I can’t think of a time when I helped someone, and didn’t feel happy in return. So imagine if everyone in the world was more aware and thought to help others more often. We’d have a bunch of happy people on our hands.

For several years, I’ve worked with different organizations that share these same values. These groups are made up of amazing people that just want to make a difference, large or small, in other peoples lives. Click on the links to learn more about how you can help.

Mid Atlantic Burn Camp – This is an annual camp for children ages 8-17 who are burn survivors. It’s held in the Blue Ridge mountains of Virginia and trust me, once you go, you are hooked…I certainly am.

Music 4 More – This is an organization that helps school and community music programs by raising money as well as donating instruments. In just 3 short years, they have done so much to help so many schools and communities keep their music programs alive.

CHAP International – This group embarks on a journey each year to Liberia, West Africa, to aid the war-torn nation by providing health care, clothing, food provisions, education and even building orphanages.

The music I write/perform is mainly about being positive, enjoying life’s journey, but also helping others along the way. As a way to pass this message along, I created these bracelets that simply say “Be Happy & Help Others”. These bracelets are also a USB flash drive which come preloaded with my newest album.

Since the organizations above do so much for so many, I’m going to donate half the proceeds of the sale of these bracelets, to be split between them. So please wear them, spread the word and help me pass along the message to Be Happy & Help Others.
