This #HustleKindness Friday, we look back to our soundcheck last week when we teamed up with the non-profit organization, Peach’s Neet Feet. We hosted the first “Peach Party On The Rocks”, which allowed children who have different disabilities or life illnesses to attend our sound-check at Red Rocks Amphitheatre.
We had two special guests, named Jaden and Jayden, who were the recipients of Peach’s Neet Feet customized shoes. Through the proceeds we generated by selling our Red Rocks #HustleKindness shirts (see below), we sponsored two pairs of shoes to be given to these kids. Here is a little about each of the recipients:
Jaden is visually impaired and at 11 years old, he is an aspiring cello player! He’s already played at Red Rocks with the Colorado Symphony and visited us while we were in the studio a couple weeks ago. Peach’s Neet Feet was able to put together a pair of customized shoes featuring a cello, his favorite greek god, Apollo, and his name in braille on his shoes!
Jayden is 13 years old and is partially deaf. She loves animals and someday would love to become a veterinarian. She participates in horse therapy and ride horses twice a week. Her customized shoes featured her favorite animal!
PNF celebrates children with through art and attempts to bring together individuals, families and supports through shared experiences. PNF’s core teachings include being selfless and sharing talents while affirming the positive effects of acting with kindness and living a purposeful life. PNF finds sponsors for each child. These sponsors fund hand-painted shoes that are delivered by Peach’s Neet Feet. Each child has something that makes them unique – whether it’s a struggle with a life-illness or diagnosis that makes these children unique – its the simple act of kindness that makes their day and creates a sense of community.
