Chances are, you’ve got an old iPod of MP3 player sitting in a drawer somewhere in your house, and if you do, Kenny Chesney would love to have it. Kenny has teamed up with the non-profit organization Music & Memory to help promote their program of collecting old MP3 players to help people struggling with Alzheimer’s disease.
Music & Memory donates MP3 players with individually customized playlists to Alzheimer’s patients to help enhance the quality of their life. As Kenny explains in a PSA he filmed for the organization, “The gift of a music player full of favorite songs can help reconnect people with Alzheimer’s to good memories and to the people around them, and that’s a ray of hope for a lot of people.”
You can learn more about the program and how to donate your old MP3 player at MusicandMemory.org.
