InspiritFor 14 years, Inspirit have been doing their part keeping Live Music alive and at the same time cheering up a lot of people – Year-Round, not just during the Holidays! They have also paid local musicians more than $100,000 over the years. Here’s a heartfelt note from Jeff Chafin, owner of Chafin Musicenter and an Inspirit Performer and Board Member.

As a professional musician, I know that music is a gift that gives in every way.

Yet during this holiday season, it’s especially important to know that Inspirit provides the gift of live music – for the less fortunate, and sometimes forgotten, people who are in restricted environments and therefore can’t get out to experience it ~ year-round!

Making a holiday donation to Inspirit will help the organization send quality live performers to entertain military veterans, the elderly, Alzheimer’s patients, developmentally disabled children, and others restricted to hospitals, pediatric centers, rehabilitation centers and more.

Music can fill a void in a lonely heart; trigger a memory that can take you back decades, bring comfort in times of sorrow, and convey joy and happiness. It’s a timeless energy that can bridge generations and bring people together. With more than three decades of service in all kinds of musical situations, I have seen this many times. Giving the gift of music through Inspirit can often mean seeing immobile people clap their hands and tap their feet, and people who can’t speak sing along to a favorite song. Those who can’t walk find a way to dance; those who show no emotion find it within themselves to smile.

There are TWO ways to GIVE to Inspirit this holiday season:

InspiritDonate directly to Inspirit like in years past or participate in the Honda Classic Birdies for Children Program where Inspirit will receive a 10% matching bonus, and you will have the opportunity to win a brand new Honda. With your donation of $20 or more, you will receive the opportunity to make a guess, or guesses, on the number of birdies made at the 2015 Honda Classic. The person coming closest to the actual number wins a new car! The Honda Classic collects all donations, and then writes checks back to Inspirit for 100% of the money plus a 10% matching bonus.

Please consider a tax-deductible donation to Inspirit to help us continue our mission to serve the under-served through the gift of music all year-round.  Any and all donations are greatly appreciated. Happy Holidays!
