The Season of Giving! From #GivingTuesday right on thru

November 27, 2018

We are Stronger than That
We are Kinder Than That ... 


The photo to your right is that moment at 2018's snowy LNT-Aid, captured by Mike Furey, emblematic of the evening and this new "Season of Giving" kicked off by our LNT-Aid and #Giving Tuesday!

In that moment,  the star solo artists performing at LNT-Aid, banded together to sing Patti Casey's anthem "We Are Stronger Than That"


LNT-Aid 2018 was special because there were many moments during the evening which showcased Vermont stars Patti Casey, Jon Gailmor, Chad Holister, and George Woodard, with special guests Kathleen Keenan, Steve Light and Kirk Lord, joining one another for "had to be there to see/hear it" tunes and storytelling.

And thank you to everyone who came out for the concert! It was a fun time that showcased the power of live performance and community coming together.

Patti's lyrics really sum up the mood of the season:

We are stronger than that, we are kinder than that
We are moving forward, we are not going back
We are stronger than that, we are kinder than that
Love is stronger than that
When the storm is rolling in and our hopes start to fade
chad hollister in performance LNT AidThat’s when we rise as one, our spirits like a blade
We are many, we are mighty, and even when we are afraid
We are stronger than that
We will not yield to hatred, to lies or to shame
Our power lies in courage, and our love is not tame
If the lights go out on justice, we will light a flame
‘Cause we are stronger than that
To every one that’s turned away, we open up our town
If fear can build a wall, then love can tear it down
Then we’ll build a bigger table for all to gather round ‘Cause we are stronger than that
