Songs to Lift Your Mood

Happy Dog

When you need a little pick-me-up to lift your mood, pop on one of these tunes:

Ben Harper – “In the Colors”

Joss Stone – “Somehow”

Sara Bareilles – “Gonna Get Over You”

Van Morrison – “Bright Side of the Road”

Jack Johnson – “Upside Down”

These songs work for me! What do you listen to to lift your mood?

Justin Bieber Launches Believe Charity Drive

It’s apparently all about Justin Bieber’s big heart lately….

Justin Bieber Under the Mistletoe

In conjunction with the release of his Christmas album, Under the Mistletoe, Bieber also announced a new charity drive called Believe. He plans to donate a portion of the proceeds from his new album to this charity, and encourages others to donate as well. Specifically, he lists the following charities to benefit from the drive:

  • Make-A-Wish Foundation
  • Pencils of Promise
  • Musicians on Call
  • Project Medishare for Haiti
  • City of Hope
  • Boys & Girls Clubs of America
  • The Grammy Foundation

He chose the above organizations due to “their emphases on education, youth well-being and music.” He says, “The Believe Charity Drive directly benefits charities that are making a difference in the world. You can … donate as little as one dollar, or even donate your time, because everything will make a difference. Please join me in our quest to raise millions of dollars by the release of my new 2012 album, Believe. I know that with your help we can make a change.”

Thanks for giving back, Justin!
