Acts of Kindness


After singing to a friend who laid in a coma with AIDS in 1990, Kate Munger realized this would be her life's work. Then in August 1997, while driving back home from Montana, she committed herself to sing for any animals she encountered who'd been killed on the road. Based on the inspiration of those two events, Munger started the Threshold Choir--a small, volunteer-run choir that sings to terminally ill and dying people. "The most touching response was when a woman mouthed the word, 'WON-DER-FUL.' That was the last time she communicated with her family," Munger says.
