The Tio Charles Guitar Foundation provides support to local performing musicians by providing material support in the form of musical accessories, performance support by listing the musicians in a nationally accessible database, and audience support by encouraging the musicians' continuing performances.
We would also like to offer these thoughts to you:
Do more good than bad.
Live life like a kick in the pants.
Smile at someone today.
If you can afford it, give something away. If you can't give money, give your time, patience, or ability.
Life is a carnival.
Think you've got it bad? Now think of someone who has it worse, and imagine them thinking of someone who has it worse than them and so on to the last guy. The guy who has it worse than anyone. Imagine being him. You ain't got so bad.
Man is the only animal that laughs and weeps; for he is the only animal that is struck with the difference between what things are, and what they ought to be. - William Hazlitt
