The video above has Aidan Thomas rocking the Main Stage at Tedx Cincinnati talking about living to give, mixing in his blues harmonica and having a blast while totally entertaining the sold out house of over 1,000 people. Says he, “One of the best days of my life. Ever!”
Aidan Thomas Hornaday, age 14, has been a harmonica jamming boy since he was little. One night he ended up with $80 in tips in his fedora while playing his toy harp at an Atlanta restaurant where he was playing because bored at a grownup dinner. That very night, he decided to give his tips to charity to fight parasites for children in Africa. He read an article about the plight and it was his heart to help buy pills to help stop the suffering. That was the start of AidanCares. Since then, things have really taken off. Aidan and his Mom have traveled here and overseas working to make a difference.
His mission is to share the necessity and joy of giving with all ages. “Find your passion and give from that place. Then you will never give out.” Aidan Cares is in the process of creating a series called “Giving 101” which will help inspire others to find what makes their heart sing.
Aidan has played giving gigs and speaking appearances all over to make his dreams happen, from street corners to nursing homes, VA hospitals, colleges, schools to convention centers and Youth Summits and oh so many gigs in between. If you would like for him to come and share, please
