Just imagine ~ It’s a September Sunday and you are wondering how to spend your afternoon. Imagine hearing a talk from the fabulous New York Times best-selling author Pam Grout, and singing along with positive, inspirational and fun music from New Thought Artists Greg Tamblyn, Karen Drucker & Gary Lynn Floyd…

Turn imagination into reality! On Sunday September 18th at 4:00 pm, at Unity On The Plaza in Kansas City, we are creating a Benefit Concert to raise funds for the 222 Foundation. 

And the best part: it’s FREE!!!!!!!

(While it is free, we are suggesting a donation of $22
or any amount that you feel comfortable donating.)

 Pam Grout’s 222 Foundation was started in honor of her 25-year-old daughter Taz, whose life was cut short by a brain aneurysm. In keeping up with the philanthropic work Taz was doing in the world, The 222 Foundation gives a $12,222 grant every February 22 (2/22) to a creative project that rewrites the dream of the modern world from consumption and acquisition to the dream of creativity and self-expression. In their words: “We believe the pursuit of happiness comes from human solidarity, simple living, respect for nature and the empowerment of all people. Our mission is to reallocate the world’s resources away from fear and towards love.”
