Partnership with Music is Art

Posted: November 2, 2014 in Uncategorized

MIAThe Pick Me Up Foundation is excited to announce our partnership with Music is Art (http://www.musicisart.org).  Music is Art was founded in 2003 by Goo Goo Dolls bassist, Robby Takac with the broad mission of exploring and reshaping music’s cultural, social, and educational impact on communities.  The Pick Me Up Foundation will be supporting MiA’s specific goals of providing musical instruments, equipment and lessons to under resourced children.  For those who had the pleasure of knowing Aaron we can all attest that this is something that was close to his heart.  He was always ready to lend an instrument to someone who needed one, teach others how to play and record music, and genuinely cared about people who “were outside looking in”.  While we grieve daily about not having Aaron in our physical universe we can rest assured that he is looking down at us with a smile, with his hands in his pockets, whistling a tune and hoping that we are “keeping it breezy”
