Vancouver's Brian Thompson was tired of all the clutter around his home.
The former music buyer for now-defunct A&B Sound had a collection of some 4,000 CD's that were mostly just collecting dust so instead of trying to sell them he decided to put them to good use. After talks with friend Chris Brandt, who happens to be the executive director of Music Heals Canada, a not-for-profit organization that funds increased access to music therapy for a wide range of patients, he found a home for the music.
Last week he donated the 4,000 CDs to the Vancouver General Hospital's music therapy program.
"Why be defined by my possessions? Rather I’d prefer to be defined by my actions," he said.
"I reached out to the music therapy community, and the only rule was you have to take all of them, I don't want to splinter these [CDs] up, " Brandt told CBC News.
