Hello Friends, dear friends, Ma’am, sir and dear family,

You know what? Everyone here, you, us, I love music, we love watching movies, we love beautiful photos and paintings. It makes us happy, it makes us dance, laugh, smile, sometimes cry. The emotions evoked by the sounds we love, the colors that make us dream, the paintings we want to have at home are priceless, and they make a huge contribution to personal emancipation, its own development as well.

I don’t know about you, but I can’t live without music! It is present from morning to afternoon and sometimes even in the evening. I listen to everything! Very aggressive metal, from Chopin, the Rolling Stones or the Beatles.

These artists gave me energy, strength, and sometimes organized my days. Some of the lucky ones (or not) have become great artists recognized around the world because you and I have and continue to buy their albums.

For many of them, we’ve seen them in concert! A journey into a world of imagination, incredible sounds, emotions that give us the pulpit! Summer music festivals in Europe, in my opinion, for all of you are unforgettable memories, coupled with the aroma of grilled sausages. Famous artists and all the little known have realized their night, and maybe a little changed your life! Thanks for everything!

And then all these artists make music because they love it and because their talent as painters, guitarists, bassists, drummers or writers keeps them alive. Oh… Here we obviously don’t talk about overdoing it, but to be able to eat a bit after doing a live show in bars, restaurants, small local sights. I know hundreds of these people! Here in Asia, this is a way to get out of it by making people happy as I said above, I don’t know you, but I anyway, when I hear a rock, blues or live band in a bar, on the street and this makes me stop, and I start unknowingly dancing, moving my body and I smile! Worries are gone when you listen to music! When we go to exhibitions or read books that make us travel! Not you?

So here at the Foundation, we have an idea to organize something for these artists, musicians or artists who for months can’t perform for money.

We’ve been helping sick people for years, trying to improve the education system, helping women as a whole and their special needs. Children and those who suffer the evils of daily life! And right now, there are hundreds of professions that are having a hard time! Did you know, among those who make sure that at night, there is nothing to eat or buy something vital to a healthy and balanced life! And since we cannot help the whole world, therefore, we must help those who come to knock on our doors! Musicians, artists are the one who color our lives; therefore, we are happy to help them! Together we support them.

MUSIC IS NOT ON THE RECORD, BUT IN SILENCE BETWEEN SAY MOZART! WHAT IF WE MAKE SURE THAT THIS DOESN’T LAST AND THE MUSIC TAKES PLACE?
WHAT HAVE WE ORGANIZATION FOR THEM?
We haven’t changed much from what we’ve been doing since March at last! The goods on offer have changed a lot in the last three months! Right now we have a lot of fresh vegetables, which come from our grandmother’s garden, you know what I mean? Organic, healthy, fresh and for our beneficiaries, it’s free! We also offer Tempeh which is one of the staple foods of Indonesian society even many Asian countries. Eggs, granulated sugar, cooking oil, rice, masks to protect against viruses and also preserve the environment.

I will not list our goods from the amounts we distribute and which we continue to distribute, but they are long and represent tons of important products.

What’s great today handing out food and stuff to the artists, is, because for the most part, they are musicians, we provide amps, guitars, and they play for all of us! And believe me, it makes everyone dance, sing and be filled with infectious, even viral, excitement! In short, they all came, about 200 people and all left with one or two bags.

They contain a lot of useful items, both for their health and for their children. We have succeeded in this great challenge to give a helping hand to those who make us all dance and sing!

A SINCERE THANK YOU TO OUR FRIENDS, OUR VOLUNTEERS, OUR PARTNERS!

It goes without saying that we should also thank all who have made this operation and all previous operations possible. I think of the volunteers who were there to help sort things, weigh and pack them. They have been with us for months now and are happy to donate their time to a purpose. Thank you also for the small businesses that helped us by providing a profitable price!

They understand the current needs and have decided in their own way and in their way to make gestures that side with their neighbors, colleagues, compatriots.

Thank you so much Guys for you!
