Mission: SHARE – SERVE – SHINE OUR VISION FOR WORKING IN RURAL HAITI IS TO SHARE THE WORD OF GOD, SERVE THE POOR AND NEEDY WITH LOVE AND COMPASSION, AND BE A LIGHT TO SHINE HOPE AND ENCOURAGEMENT BY WORKING TOGETHER FOR GOD’S GLORY SHARE: He said to them, “Go into all the world and preach the gospel to all creation.” Mark 16:15 SERVE: For I was hungry and you gave Me food; I was thirsty and you gave Me drink; I was a stranger and you took Me in; I was naked and you clothed Me; I was sick and you visited Me; I was in prison and you came to Me. Matthew 25:35-36 SHINE: You are the light of the world. A city set on a hill cannot be hidden; nor does anyone light a lamp and put it under a basket, but on the lamp stand, and it gives light to all who are in the house. “Let your light shine before men in such a way that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father who is in heaven. Matthew 5:14-16

This non-profit organization has done a wonderful job on a limited budget. The President Kim Butorac
is the most dedicated hardest working leader you could have. She takes a lot of personal time away from her regular business to make hundreds of Young @ Dedicated Happy and Feel more Productive
in their lives is Haiti.

Music of the Heart is a organization that I am proud to be a part of. My daughters and I have had the privelage to help Kim and Music of the Heart. My girls (both teenagers) were excited to go shopping for the kids in Haiti. It was Mom let's get this and Mom they will need that. It was a great family experience for us to share. The pictures of the smiling children tell the true story of Kim's passion for Music of the Heart. Music is truly a universal language and the children this organization supports have a remarkable indiviual looking after them. We look forward to our continued support for Music of the Heart.

Marilynn Boyko wrote; Kim Butorac has such a heart for Music Of The Heart, which is shown when you see pictures of the youth in their band uniforms. As a professional in the non-profit field, I'm fully aware of the power of music to change and transform the life of a child. This has been demonstrated in Venezuela, Harlem, St. Louis and in many, many programs throughout the country. In my eyes, Kim is a local hero who brings a joyful noise to the children of Haiti. With no fanfare, publicity, or huge funding, she has taken a passion and dream and turned it into reality. I heartily support all that she does and can only imagine how much will be accomplished in the future. What she does is exciting, and what is accomplished is phenomenal. To be
associated with the organization is an honor and privilege.

I had the honor of accompanying Kim on her first trip to Haiti and what she has been able to accomplish in a very short period of time has been miraculously extraordinary. Through her love and passion for the poor of Haiti, she brings joy and hope to everyone she meets. "Music of the Heart" will truly be a life changer for many young people who otherwise would have nothing to look forward to or to strive toward. I believe with all my heart, this is a Spirit filled mission and God only knows what wonderous marvels are yet to unfold. God has blessed you richly, Kim, with the Spirit of Love in your heart! I hope I live long enough to say, "I know that girl!!!" when 60 Minutes discovers all that you are doing and "Music of the Heart" is heard across the waters.

I have seen the photos of children who live in tin shacks with no electricity or plumbing light up with joy from the smallest gift of a toothbrush or candy necklace(things we just take for granted) to the young adults mastering a musical instrument and performing with pride at their accomplishments.....it gives me a feeling wholeness to know that my donation no matter what size it may be is helping someone less fortunate than myself!! Thanks to all the hard work and love that has been shared in Haiti by Music of the Heart Inc....you truly make a difference and spread happiness:-)
