Energy of Youth Benefit Concert/Potluck Dinner

11/20 (Sunday) 4:00 – 7:00 p.m. Pomona, NY (Rockland)

Performing world music that is inspiring and accessible for young people has been an annual theme for this benefit concert, which is performed by children ages 8-18. This year's event will feature a wide variety of classical, traditional, and original music.  Proceeds from the event go to support the sustainable living and alternative energy projects of Something Good in the World, and in the past we have built our famous seesaw pump, and a bicycle that generates electricity, as well as our low-wind power generation system and an interactive, educational wind power demonstration for children, biodynamic beehives, and a kid-powered bike blender to make organic fruit smoothies, a pop-up greenhouse, and woolly pocket gardens made from recycled materials, all from the contributions received at these concerts.  The concert will take place at the eco-friendly, sustainable, geothermal, recognized as one of the most energy efficient in NY State, home of Rabia and Paul Nagin in Pomona, NY!  

All funds received at this event are tax-deductible and will go to support the operation of our off-grid, solar-powered, eco-friendly Earth School Envira Pod Mobile Educational Trailer! This particular event has a $25 suggested donation for adults, $10 for students, $5 for children under 12.  Bring a potluck dish to share! RSVP: 914-217-9249 or somethinggooditw@aol.com.

Human Body School at Peekskill Coffee House

Throughout the month of April, visit the Peekskill Coffee House to see our "Human Body School!" projects on display! 

From cover on Benzingal.com:

As the Director of Something Good In The World said in a post to parents and students, "The art show opening reception was pure fun. I loved it especially accompanied by the 'Human Body School' music of Talking Hands Talking Feet (which by the way is coming out on CD soon). My favorite was seeing customers and coffee house staff dancing around to the music."

About the art exhibit itself, she continues, "Each installation of the exhibit describes and demonstrates one of the human body systems, whether cardiovascular or respiratory, etc., as well as the senses. So what's amazing and beautiful is how certain 'Human Body School' songs match these exactly.If we could have, I would have loved to have mounted CD players with headphones, so that visitors to the exhibit could sit and listen to the music while viewing each aspect of the exhibit...It's at the Peekskill Coffee House throughout the month of April - so don't miss it!"
