Giving Tuesday: The Christmas Project

It's Giving Tuesday, and following the insanity of Black Friday and Cyber Monday an opportunity to donate to the charitable organization of your choice is indeed a breath of fresh air and a cleanse for your soul.  I'd like to take a moment this Giving Tuesday to direct you to an extraordinary giving opportunity, one that pairs Christmas Music with the the generosity of many selfless individuals.

"The Christmas Project" was a collaboration between four business owners in and around the Waterloo and Cedar Falls, Iowa area, and the local community of musicians, all of whom came together to produce a 16-song album of acoustic Christmas songs.  Titled "The Christmas Project", the resulting album is a collection of beautiful performances of Christmas standards.  Given the guidance of 'one instrument, your voice, and your talent' the musicians interpreted some of the finest traditional Christmas carols into their own unique seasonal creations.

The proceeds from the project support Youth Art Team and House of Hope, both organizations focused on supporting the Cedar Valley region in Northeast Iowa.

This is a project that touches my heart.  It was born out of a love of their community, a strong desire to give back,  and admiration of the talented musicians who contributed to the project.  The music is fantastic, the purpose is grand.  I encourage you to visit The Christmas Project website, read about their story, and buy a download of the album to support a wonderful cause.  Or, if you're in the Waterloo/Cedar Falls area, visit a Sidecar Coffee location and pick up a hard copy CD!


The great people behind The Christmas Project are:

Chuck Rowe (Aces)
Tony Kraayenbrink (IFC Studios)
Andy Fuchtman (Sidecar Coffee)
Matt Johnson (Twin Rock Recording Co.)

Thank you gentlemen, for giving to your community, and also for sharing the gift of music from these talented musicians to your neighbors across the country.
