“A single act of kindness throws out roots in all directions, and the roots spring up and make new trees. The greatest work that kindness does to others is that it makes them kind themselves.” – Amelia Earheart.
Musicians and artists come together for many great causes and in Vancouver next week, they’ll be promoting and celebrating one simple thing: kindness. The 11th annual World Kindness Concert, happening November 4, 2011 at the Centre for Performing Arts will bring together over a dozen local and international acts as they promote this message.
From the organizers: “Why kindness? In a world where bullying, depression, suicide and violence has reached epidemic proportions, ‘Kindness’ is not just a nice idea or notion… it is critical to the well-being of our world.”
The line-up so far includes ABRA Cadabra, Bill Sample (Musical Director & Piano), Brian Newcombe (Bass), Brock Tully (MC &Founder), Dirty Radio, Jane Mortifee, Leora Cashe, Metropolis Glee Club, Michaela Slinger, Michael Vincent, Ranj Singh & The Descriminators, Robbie Steininger (Lead Guitar), Shari Ulrich, Shawn Soucy (Drums), Sibel Thrasher, and Veronica Iza.
Tickets are now on sale and proceeds support Kindness Rocks, a bullying prevention program for youth. You can follow the World Kindness Concert on Facebook and Twitter for more information.
