Help Bring Music Camp for Kids to Eagle, AK

Music can bring joy, hope and love to villages struggling with alcoholism, drugs and suicide. Music builds confidence, self-esteem and the closeness of family–just what the community of rural Eagle, Alaska needs as they deal with the lingering flood damage from 2009.
Belle Mickelson started the Dancing with the Spirit project to connect youth and elders through music. In the past seven years, the program has lifted spirits in 25 different communities all over Alaska. Although it has visited Eagle several times in the past, they lack the funding to return this year…so they’ve launched a kickstarter campaign!
Help them reach their goal of $5000 so they can buy camp instruments, music supplies (guitar picks, violin rosin, capos, etc.), healthy snacks for the kids, teaching supplies, staff travel costs to and from Eagle, and hiring quality musicians to teach for the week. The more money raised, the more good can be done!
For more info and to make a contribution, visit their kickstarter page.

This year, the program boasts 6 Alaska chefs performing a combined total of 27 demonstrations at 9 local farmers markets and special events. To find out more information about “Chef at the Market” demonstrations in your area contact, Jacquelyn Schade at Jacquelyn.schade@alaska.gov or (907)761-3858.
