Our Story

Hi Everyone!

Every year, to kick off the holiday season, we kids organize a benefit concert to raise money for children in need. We practice and perform and then ask friends and family to donate to a cause that we have chosen. 

Children in Boston, Provo, Philladelphia, Seattle and Salt Lake City are all putting on concerts this year!  We hope that by joining together we can raise a lot of money to make a big impact.

Because of the growing refuge crisis we are donating directly to the Do Your Part (DYP) Oinofyta Center for Refugees in Greece.  This center serves 600 people who have fled unimaginable conditions and extreme violence in their home country of Syria and walked over 1200 miles in a desperate bid for the chance at a better life for their families.  With winter approaching, these people, including 75 pregnant and nursing moms and almost 300 children (90 of whom are under 2 years old) are languishing in a poorly run refugee camp that simply does not provide for their most basic needs.  Their only sanctuary for humanitarian aid is the DYP Center for Refugees just down the road. They provide free medical and mental health care, language classes, legal services, job training and enriching activities for the children.  They also collect and distribute warm wither clothing, diapers and nutritious food for pregnant and nursing Moms who aren't getting enough to eat.

We have recently learned that the Center is in trouble.  The funds that once poured out upon the refugee crisis has slowed to a trickle and the Center is nearly out of money.  If we don't help them now, they will soon be forced to close their doors and these 600 refugees will be left alone.  They need our help. 

We have been in direct contact with the Center's director, Lisa Campbell (click here start listening at minute 2:40 for her tedtalk to learn more about the work she's doing in Oinofyta).  Lisa will ensure that donations accepted through this page will go directly towards supporting the work of the Center to enrich refugee lives. 

If you can make it to the concert please donate there with cash, check, or venmo.  If you can't make it or live too far away, please donate here!  

All donations will be matched 1:1 by a family foundation.   Please indicate in your comments which concert you're supporting. 

If you're interested in becoming an ongoing monthly sponsor of the Community Center please click here.

Thank you so much for helping us to make a difference.
