Thinking of sending out an e-card or two this holiday season? Why not? There’s no better way to say, “I sort of care about you but couldn’t be bothered to buy you anything or write by hand.” And when you’re ready to distribute your glad tidings, we here at PopWatch would like to advocate Fidelity’s FutureStage e-card program, in which you can send one of eight different greetings featuring music from some of the best orchestras in the country: the Boston Pops, the Chicago Symphony, the L.A. Philharmonic, or my personal favorite, the Houston Symphony.
But don’t do it just for the joy of emailing the sound of my parents playing music to your loved ones — do it because for every e-card sent, Fidelity will donate $1 to buy musical instruments for kids in the city of the orchestra you choose. I know exactly how many of you are out there, PopWatchers. We could make a serious difference in some lives right now. Join me, won’t you? Send a card. Brighten a day. And give a kid a violin. Magic.
