It was Madonna that once said: “Music makes the people come together” in her song titled “Music.” But what happens when music doesn’t come together for children? What happens when music gets taken out of schools due to budget cuts? Studies show that music helps children develop their brain and build confidence. So what kind of a world are we creating if we are not developing children with the necessary survival skills?
For this issue of “The Social Networth,” an empowering movement and show featuring content creators using their platform to create visibility for causes, we are benefiting the charity Adopt The Arts. This organization is committed to bringing music to public schools affected by budget cuts.
Adopt The Arts is a non-profit that funds art programs in public elementary schools. Co-founded in 2012 by legendary Guns n’ Roses drummer Matt Sorum and activist and entrepreneur, Abby Berman. Supported by Jane Lynch, Shepard Fairey, and others. Their mission is to bring together well-known artists, public figures, entrepreneurs, policymakers, and the general public to save the arts in America’s public schools. They believe that it is morally and ethically correct to foster the creativity, dreams, hopes, and imaginations of children.
We have the incredible privilege to have Jane Lynch as our featured guest star on this feature. Not only is Jane a phenomenal actress who lights up the screen with groundbreaking roles in shows such as Glee and The Marvelous Mrs. Mazel, but she also spearheads Adopt the Arts. Jane is committed to spreading the message of music for children in the world.
Our featured content creators have been deeply touched by music and want to share their stories with the world. They also want to share the importance of Adopt The Arts all over their social platforms. We are so proud of this issue of The Social Networth, where we shine the light on an organization that believes in the power of music for our children.
