RyandTom’s Magical Christmas

Two summers ago, Thomas Hill and I recorded and produced a Christmas album for charity. We recorded each song in my house and then sold the physical copies of the CD to people in our town and anyone else who heard about it. We invited all the musicians in our school to be featured on the album, and we finished with a total of 17 tracks. Anyone who pre-ordered the album had it hand delivered to them on December 1st. Upon delivery, they received the CD as well as a brief, live performance. We raised almost $2000 that we used to buy toys for children in need. We donated the gifts to Toys For Tots, a non-profit organization that distributes donated toys to low income households. It was certainly the best Christmas of my life, and I will never forget the feeling of giving back to the community. Our album is now available for free on our Soundcloud page.
