I’ve been writing a lot on this blog about Mr. Bennett’s music and art. Today I want mention his record as a humanitarian.
As I’ve been reading news stories and learning about Mr. Bennett, I’ve learned that he has a reputation as someone who contributes time and money to worthy causes. The Look to the Stars website lists a few of the organizations he supports. In addition to co-founding Exploring The Arts with his wife Susan Benedetto, he supports the efforts of others who want to reach out and help.
The Year of Tony Bennett contributes a dollar for each follower of this blog to Exploring the Arts, with a minimum of $5o each quarter to that organization.
