kindness

“When you stand and share your story in an empowering way, your story will heal you and your story will heal somebody else”
Iyanla Vanzant

 

Giving is good! So here at I’m not a machine we will be giving a percentage of our profits from 2018 to two organisations that reflect what we value – kindness!

 

Dramatic Need

'Dramatic Need is a UK-registered charity that sends international arts professionals (such as musicians, artists and actors) to host workshops in underprivileged and rural communities in sub-Saharan Africa. The charity promotes creative expression as a tool for conflict resolution, social development, gender empowerment and the assimilation of health messages in underprivileged communities. Dramatic Need also provides art, music and film-making equipment to schools in South Africa and Rwanda.'

Silverlake Conservatory

'The mission of Silverlake Conservatory of Music, a non-profit organization formed in California, is to facilitate basic music education. The primary focus is on the youth of the community but all are welcome and encouraged to participate. The Conservatory offers private music lessons at a reasonable cost and grants scholarships to children in need, providing free lessons and instruments. The study of music enriches not only the life of the student but the community and society as well.'
