Description/Profile/About

Compassionate musicians holding concert events to raise money to buy food and other life essentials for children and their families as well as veterans and the elderly who need food security. These musicians and volunteers bag and distribute face to face with love and respect. Our goal is to create outpost food stores where families can buy nutritious food and other life essentials including toiletries, hygiene products as well as paper products and cleaning supplies for pennies on the dollar. In addition to these supplies, there will be part of a mentoring program for children to give them opportunities to learn ways to avoid drug abuse and give them a creative and artistic way of coping with stress and emotional challenges, including youth music classes and performance workshops. This also includes athletic activities including organized team sports and team building. At each location there will be an edible school yard that will be led by agriculture professionals to teach children and adults how to prepare soil, plant and harvest nutritional fruits and veggies in a natural and organic way. Families also will learn to prepare with herbs and spices then eat the meals together. There will be local musicians at each dinner to enhance the atmosphere. At each family dinner event there will be giveaways of the fresh produce from harvest.

What would you do to change the world?

I would put together a series of concert events and televise them around the world to gain support and volunteers for each location. This broadcast would feature video clips of the life changing outposts I have described. These broadcasts will have live phone banks to direct callers to the outpost initiative in their area to connect them. These "Families Feeding Families" Campaign Concerts can happen all over the world on a weekly or monthly basis and be avaiable for live streaming as well. It will be a "WORLD CONNECT EVENT" I also am founder of Solid Rock Ministries In Monrovia, Liberia. We have an accredited school as well as a church that serves hundreds of families. This initiative will help to build a brick and mortar school church and outpost that will sustain that community as well. (All buildings currently have dirt floors, woven mat walls and zinc roofs.)

About Musicians Mission of Mercy
Musicians Mission of Mercy unites compassionate musicians from all genres to play a direct role in providing food and other life essentials to people in need.
Music has a universal power to bring people together emotionally and spiritually. We tap into the gifts of musicians to bring awareness to our mission and raise funds to buy and distribute provisions.
Participating artists also can have hands-on involvement in distributing food, toiletries and other essentials to the hungry in the community. Life’s essentials also include love, respect and dignity. Musicians are empowered to demonstrate these qualities as they interact face-to-face with their fans and people in need.
Musicians and non-musicians alike can support our cause by making a donation of any size to help buy provisions for distribution or by becoming a volunteer.
Musicians feed the hungry. Music feeds the soul. Join us in our mission!
Who Benefits?
Despite a variety of support programs in the U.S., a multitude of people go to bed hungry every night. According to statistics from the U.S. Census Bureau:
•More than 45 million Americans live below the poverty line
•More than 49 million Americans are at risk of hunger
•Over 48 percent of households in the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP, formerly food stamps) are working households.
•Two-thirds of SNAP recipients are children, elderly or disabled
Musicians Mission of Mercy targets distributions in communities with a high percentage of these populations, including children attending Title 1 schools and their families, the elderly on fixed incomes, disabled veterans and people who are mentally or physically challenged.
YOU also benefit when you get involved – knowing that you’ve helped to provide life essentials to communities where the need is tremendous.
PLEASE CONSIDER GIVING US YOUR SUPPORT TODAY. ONLY TWO SIMPLE STEPS REQUIRED.

HOW WE WORK
Musicians Mission of Mercy makes it easy for musicians to participate, even when they have a busy travel and performance schedule. Non-musicians can participate, too!
How the Program Works
Local social services agencies, Title 1 schools and churches will be contacted to help spread the word among people in need about an upcoming distribution of life essentials. Special consideration is given to underserved children and their families, the elderly and mentally/physically handicapped people including disabled veterans and their families.
Two Ways Musicians Can Be Involved:
•On the day of their concert (or the day before if it better serves the musicians’ schedule), participating musicians help distribute life essentials face-to-face to people in need while showing love and respect for them.
•Established musicians with a heart to feed the poor take up donations during their scheduled tour dates to help buy provisions for distribution.

Local woman starts charity with national musicians to help needy

TOLEDO (13abc Action News) - According to the U.S. Census Bureau more than 45 million Americans live below the poverty line and two-thirds of those who receive food stamps are children, elderly or disabled. A local woman is working to help change that along with her family, friends and some famous musicians.
Catherine Steele has only lived here in Toledo for about a year and a half. She has already started a charity that will connect people in need to those who want to help. While it will be based here in Toledo, the hope is to provide help around the world.
Catherine is a DJ at Proclaim FM, a local Christian station. She's also a musician and the founder of "Musicians Mission of Mercy Ministries." She says her calling to help others started when she got lost in the mountains of North Carolina more than a decade ago.
She came across a family living in poverty that opened their home to her and helped her get back on course, "it really started a fire in my heart to do something. You can't change everybody's life but you can change someone's life."
She started a charity in North Carolina to provide food and supplies to the needy. When she moved to the Toledo area she started her new charity. Artists from all genres will be able to be part of the effort, "it really is an amazing way to link all the like hearts together to do one big effort. It makes the work so much easier when you have many hands and sweet hearts."
Here's how it works. Musicians will help distribute a truckload of food and essentials to those in need the day of their show. The hope is the first concert will be here in Toledo this fall, from there the effort goes nationwide, "i was a single mom and I was hungry. I had a good job and it looked like I was doing well but I lived in hunger I think god put me through that so I would have the mercy to do this."
The first musician to sign on is Vaughan Penn. Dozens of Penn's songs have been in films and television shows. Her latest album is a compilation of praise and worship music, "We don't write songs and do music to say look at me. Do it to bring hope to people to touch their hearts and to inspire people."
Each truckload of food and supplies costs about $10,000 dollars. Penn is performing here this weekend to kick off the fundraising effort, "I have been very blessed to be able to be a musician for most of my life and make a living, but for me I have to go deeper.This gives me a new reason to get out of bed in the morning it;s not about me it is about living my life for others."
