Hardship and goodness



Often, in the midst of hardship, the goodness of others shines through brightly. This goodness brings us hope in the midst of tragedy and reassures us that the human race is compassionate at its core. 


This is one of those days—a day when a tragedy transformed the hearts of many to do good for others. 

Today Tom—Camp Jake Director—said goodbye to a dear friend who unexpectedly passed away this week: a man who adored life, cherished laughter, lived for music, and cheerfully gave to those in need. Music was this man’s porthole to life, carrying him through the many complexities of existence, both good and bad. 

It is in memory of Marcelo Ferreira, that we announce the founding of the Marcelo Ferreira Salle de Musique (MFSM), an avenue through which friends and family can honor his memory and giving spirit with the gift of music for the residents of St. Vincent’s Center for Handicapped Children in Port-au-Prince, Haiti. 

Marcelo Jose Nascimento Ferreira
September 4, 1965 - October 30, 2012
Québex City, Canada

As Marcelo touched many, MFSM allows his friends and family to touch the lives of the disabled children at St. Vincent’s. MFSM will provide musical instruments and related media equipment to enrich the lives of those who call St. Vincent’s home, providing them with the comforts and camaraderie that only sound can offer.
