Just Ask

I was talking with Greg this morning, he’s an artist in San Francisco and has an amazing art Gallery, Johnny Utah’s in San Francisco at 1495 Valencia.

I was telling him that one of the things I wanted to do was to create a Caribbean Music Festival in Belize to increase the almost non existent music industry there, but also, to have the students take part in the planning of a major event.

Music is a big part of children’s lives and should be nurtured and encouraged. More students who are involved in music attend college than the percentage of those who don’t take music in some manner, whether it’s an instrument or voice.

Greg casually mention he is friends with several major musicians including Boz Scaggs. He said he would be happy to ask his contacts to participate in a festival to help raise funds for the school.

I have been in the business of helping others for more than 20 years and I have never seen anything ever happen like this.

It seems as though every time I connect with someone they have a contact or a connection for me for the school or relating to Belize. I am so grateful and feel so fortunate. What an amazing time in my life!

About Sharyn

As founder of UBU I found my inspiration from my brother Tony who was a foster child, then adopted by my parents when he was five. After listening to his stories about the treatment he received while in the homes I began to think of what it was like for him as well as the thousands of other kids. I decided to start the school after Tony passed on in 2008. It is my tribute to him and all that he did for me. Of all the things I've done in my life, this is the one thing that truly makes me feel like I'm finally on the right path.
