Here at Flatland, we want to offer a gentle reminder that the holidays are a season of giving, not just receiving. So our gift to you is a daily list of sometimes-obscure local charitable organizations that could use your help. From Dec. 24 to Jan. 1, we are providing brief descriptions of deserving charities and information about how you can contribute. We know there are many wonderful local charities, so we’re also providing a list of organizations featured this year on 90.9 The Bridge’s “Give Back Friday” segments. Our hope is that the “Season of Giving” feature becomes something of a holiday tradition here at Flatland, because there are so many groups that deserve the attention, and community needs never end.

Midwest Music Foundation

Founded in 2013 in memory of Abigail Henderson, a Kansas City musician who died of cancer. Henderson dreamt of creating a musician’s healthcare coalition after she was rushed to the emergency room for a hernia while on tour. The program helps the music community with funds for emergency care as well as offers education and career development support.
