    Music Saves LivesŪ is the bridge between music, entertainment and important life-saving causes. We bring a simple concept connect the music and entertainment to a lifesaving community action: blood donation and the bone marrow registry. We educate about the importance of simple life saving actions they can participate in. Donating blood, running a blood drive, and registering for the marrow program to save those with leukemia, all connect back to the community. As a recognized 501(c)3 organization we have grown from our home base in Southern California launching at "Eco Hideaway" Music Saves LivesŪ to a worldwide presence.
