Team 11 (Mort) is collecting old iPods and mp3s for a charity Music and Memory, a non-profit organization that is using an innovative method to help patients with Alzheimer’s and dementia. This organization uses donated iPods to play personalized playlists, which are actually able to trigger positive memories and make patients happy. This method has even shown to be effective with people who were not musical when they were younger; upon hearing the music, they are awakened to their past because of their emotional connection to particular types of music.
So bring your old or unused music player to Mort's pit area at the Palmetto Competition.
Thanks!
