The Spirit of Giving

Standard

The spirit of giving always seems to take the limelight at this time of year, when all focus should be on love, support, helping and giving.  Orville Burrell, aka Shaggy has adopted the cause of the Bustamante Hospital for Children, by putting on a fundraiser concert, this Saturday, January 3, 2009.  It is to raise funds to purchase well needed equipment to be able to save more lives of our children, in the largest children’s hospital in the English speaking caribbean.  The below video had me rocking and singing and thinking how I could make it to the concert, ticket starting price J$5,000 peaking at J$20,000.  You can get more information on the concert by clicking here.

The video gave me the same feeling as when “We are the World” was released back in 1985.

The concert has a wonderful line up and should make for good quality entertainment.  I encourage everyone to go, or at least to support the cause.  Too many times, we hear on the news or meet someone who has had the unfortunate experience of losing a child because they couldn’t get the treatment they needed locally and could not afford to go overseas to get it. As a mother, it touches me deeply and in whatever way I can, I’ll try to support the cause.

  1. This is a great idea that has been long in coming. Breaks my heart each time a child dies because of lack of equipment or funds.
