Artists Striving To End Poverty Inc
September 25, 2009
I had the great pleasure of working with Mary-Mitchell Campbell on a benefit for ASTEP this past May. Mary-Mitchell was working at the college where I teach and organized a wonderful benefit/ fund raiser for ASTEP. We did 'Songs for a New World' under her direction and I had the honor of choreographing it. It was through this experience that I became acquainted with this organization. At all times through this process the need and importance of what we were doing was never forgotten. The children we were raising money for were always on my mind at least.
What is really rewarding about this particular organization is your artistry is so important to the success and it is an amazing feeling to use your art in away to help people and give a little back. We as artist really don't make much money so we really can't give much in that way, but we can give of our time and what we love the most to help. ASTEP let's you do that and in fact excepts you to use your art to the best of your ability to help. It is a well run organization and every one who I have come in contact with has the passion and determination to continue this wonderful journey as well as making you feel like you are just as important as the big stars that they get to help raise money. I can't say enough about how wonderful these people are and how important and great the organization is for the world. They deserve all the awards and praise that they receive and then some.

hearing about the benefits that the fund raiser did for the children . And seeing pictures of the children.
