This is just a quick mention of a charity called Ear Candy.
The charity exsists to pay for music programs in schools, and to buy musical instruments and music lessons for kids. The founders of Ear Candy believe that budget cuts are wipping out all the music programs in Arizona schools, and they are worried that this will wipe out a whole generation of little Arizona musicians. Since it would be tragic to imagine a future without music, Ear Candy has ben created a a way to help make up the diffrence.
Here is a link to their Web site if you want to learn more, volunteer, or donate.
I am mentionning Ear Candy because I think wonderful charities like this are an important part of Arizona culture. I found out about them when Leslie announced that profits from The Bigger Picture would go to this charity this year.
