The Timothy’s Gift journey started the instant compassion became passion. In 1998, Nashville businessman Ron Miller watched a news report about a Florida boy, Tim Kane, who was charged with murder, tried as an adult, and given two life sentences despite having never touch a single victim. Hearing Tim’s certainly unique story lead to the birth of a Non-Profit, Timothy’s Gift, that has already touched thousands of lives. What may be most extraordinary about all of this is the hope Tim has sparked all from inside the prison walls.
The Hope Tour, led by Melissa Greene, has risen to be a vital instrument for sharing the message of Timothy’s Gift to both inmates and staff. Timothy’s Gift gained national recognition by being involved on NBC’s The Sing Off Holiday Special in December 2014. The girls, Melissa Greene, Anna Register, Abby Lane Hinton, Beta Angarole, Emily Angarole & Lauren Wedertz, not only shared their talent as they do in prisons but they also shared their hearts. The message of Timothy’s Gift is that no one is forgotten, that every human being has great WORTH.
THE HOPE TOUR
The Hope Tour brings a tapestry of musicians, singers and artists together to share a message of hope and love that is agnostic to the uniform, blind to the “why?”, and seeks to close the gap between “them” and “us.”
BEHIND THE SCENES
