What does the holiday season mean to you? To many, the holidays are a time for family, love, giving, and hope. Sixteen-year-old Will Newman’s Believe Again Project encompasses all of these themes. Will won a Scholastic Gold Key for Poetry as well as an American Visions Award and Creativity & Citizenship Award for Photography in 2011. Now, he is helping others through his gift of music.
When Will was 11, he visited a cancer center where his father was being treated for Chronic Lymphocytic Leukemia (CLL) and met the president of CLL Global Research Foundation. He wanted to help the doctors and researchers who were determined to find a cure for his father’s disease and, together with his father, wrote Believe Again.
Coupled with some of his holiday favorites, Will released a heartwarming CD to benefit CLL Global’s work. His inspirational project made the front page of the Asheville Citizen-Times on Thanksgiving Day.
Help us give the gift of hope this holiday season! Will’s parents are donating the cost to record, manufacture, and promote the CD so that all the proceeds from the sales will go directly to CLL Global.
