The Kindness Sessions 2August 12, 2014
Welcome to the second in a series of blogs from singer songwriter and founder of I’m not a machine music Verity Pabla…
I mentioned in my first Kindness blog that the charity Animals Asia are doing something incredible – turning a bear farm into a bear sanctuary, for a record 130 bears in China! The campaign to raise money and awareness is called Peace By Piece – take a minute to see what they are doing and I hope, like me, you find inspiration in the compassion and dedication of the Animals Asia team. Through my music career, as an artist, I give 10% of my income to support this organisation. Through my record label/publishing company, I’m not a machine music, we give a % of our profit to two different organisations who do great work for people. I am personally most inclined toward animals and the environment but in selecting the charities to commit to that reflect the label’s branding and purpose, it seemed right to choose the Silverlake Conservatory of Music & Dramatic Need.
On reflection, doesn’t it feel (to more than just me) that the world as a whole needs a lot more kindness – from nature requiring greater care to people needing more genuine love & compassion to, most certainly, animal species deserving and desperately wanting for better treatment?
How are you expressing your kindness these days?
