For my first post in the We are the World Blogfest, I'd like to write about a wonderful organization that brings music to patients in Chicago area hospitals. The organization is Sharing Notes.
I found Sharing Notes in the fall of 2013 when I was setting up a fundraising project at Kickstarter. They had set up their own fundraising project. I loved the idea of bringing music to people in hospitals. I have spent my share of time in hospitals, and I know how much music can ease the stress and anxiety of being a patient.
For more human stories of the heart, visit the blogs listed under "This is a Blog Hop" here. #WATWB bloggers publish their contributions to the blog hop on the last Friday of each month. Thanks to this month's blogfest hosts:
Belinda Witzenhausen, Lynn Hallbrooks, Simon Falk, Sylvia McGrath, and Damyanti Biswas.
"We are the World Blogfest" is a blog hop of bloggers dedicated to posting stories "that show compassion and the resilience of the human spirit. Sharing these stories increases our awareness of hope in our increasingly dark world."
