This Sunday, 23 November, 2014 at Vitellos Restaurant, Curt Smith and several wonderful stars & supporters will lend their talents and love for an amazing cause, the recovery of the beloved Taylor Smith. We’ve had this young lady in our prayers for several weeks now. As mentioned in our annual #TeamCS holiday notice, sweet Taylor could use our help as she reaches 100% healing.

A part of the efforts will be a wonderful evening of ‘Thanks & Giving‘ for this worthy cause. We love to celebrate youth. We support them 100% and so do these stars, inclusive of the award winning Jason Alexander (many will remember him from Seinfeld, top broadway musicals and much more), Wilson Philips (another award winning music favourite of many of us), the awesome Asdru Sierra of OzoMatli and Joan Ryan. Together they’ll entertain fellow supporters of Taylor’s recovery. Curt will perform 3 songs.

Without preaching to the choir, we know there are tons in the world who get paused by life. Some have been highlighted by Good Man Curt Smith. It’s time to take a moment and just see what we can do to help those who need a hand.

Some cases may seem more severe than others, some more tragic…but they ALL need attention. Members of #TeamCS – a group that started in 2010 supporting Curt’s participation in a charity to help the earthquake victims in Haiti -encourage everyone to give what you can this year to the group in need of your choice. There is a list below of past charities and orgs to which we have contributed or donated. You may have some to which you donate and we’d love to hear about them too.

We never know when we’ll need a helping hand. As much as we plan and work hard to ‘hold it together’ things go awry and often are out of our control. Sometimes one’s savings isn’t enough to pull through in the hard times. Please consider those who need to be uplifted during their time of distress. Make November and December a month of charitable donations in the amount you can afford. If you do donate, tweet us @papasfans, we’d love to RT and encourage others to join the causes.
