Haddonfield Online: Musical fundraiser for Mia was well-attended

An appreciative audience enjoyed a concert at the Presbyterian Church on Saturday (April 24), held to help the Strobel family meet the costs of caring for their seven-year-old daughter, Mia, who is battling both leukemia and a heart condition.

The concert was sponsored by Play It For Good, a local non-profit organization that seeks to enable young artists who want to "do good" to participate in fundraising efforts for worthy causes.

One Million Acts of Kindness & Mia Benefit Concert

Mia, Community, Haddy, Lemonade, and Love


Haddonfield isn’t just a town, it is a community; a community of very friendly people; Its residents were very interested in learning all about The Kindness Bus Tour. I must have had thirty long conversations with people from the area. I got a sense after awhile, that this community is involved in many ways of reaching out to those in need. Visiting Haddonfield, needs to be on everyone’s bucket list.
