Review for The Spirit of Harmony Foundation, Chicago, IL, USA
As a relatively new fan of musician Todd Rundgren, I found out about his Spirit of Harmony Foundation when a call was put out to fans to volunteer in social media and blog writing. In the past four years, I have helped spread the word about the foundation's music education advocacy by writing blog entries, a Volunteer Spotlight series, editing a quarterly newsletter, contributing to social media postings and helping at a homeless shelter in South Bend, Indiana, where Todd handed out ukuleles to children to begin a music program there. Most recently, I helped staff a foundation information table at Todd Rundgren's 'The Individualist' concerts. This is just a small sampling of the connections created and fostered by the Spirit of Harmony Foundation. The foundation strives to pair schools in need of musical instruments or music programs with community organizations equipped to fulfill those needs. Music changes lives and the foundation helps nurture that ideal by proactively working to get musical instruments into the hands of children from the earliest age possible. It is truly, as the Todd Rundgren song lyric states, 'Love in Action.'
