Some Good News to Share!

Good Morning, Joey!

Thomas here, Andrew Hankinson’s husband!

I just wanted to share with you on a really positive update on the work that we (@ SoulCove Center for the Arts) have been doing. This past March, we traveled to a town in South Africa to work with the children and staff involved with a music program at their community center. One of our major projects during our time there was producing a music video (also serving as a micro-documentary of our work). We hope you might take a look at it, enjoy it, and maybe share it? The community is struggling and we hope it inspires others to join the cause!

At little bit about the project:
What do you think the world could achieve if we all chose to believe in love?
Located in a region with one of the highest rates of Fetal Alcohol Syndrome in the world, the Richmond Community Center provides educational resources and opportunities to empower youth to become better and stronger citizens. Partnering with SoulCove Center for the Arts has strengthened the center’s’ ability to use music and the arts to teach the valuable life skills necessary to change the course of a struggling community.

Full (ten minute) documentary can be found here:

The song, Believe, was written by Jon Batiste.

Thank you so much for reading this and for helping to support our amazing children!
