The Cell Phones for Soldiers program was started by thirteen year old Brittany Bergquist and her twelve year old brother Robbie of Norwell, MA. After hearing a news report about a local soldier who ran up a massive phone bill calling home from Iraq, they decided they wanted to do something to help. Brittany and Robbie donated their snack money and went to the bank to open an account. The South Shore Savings Bank in Norwell donated $500 to help them get started. Their goal is to help our soldiers serving overseas call home. They hope to provide as many soldiers as possible with prepaid calling cards for now, with an ultimate goal of providing banks of cell, satellite, or VOIP communications. They have already distributed calling cards to soldiers in Iraq, Kuwait, Afghanistan, and elsewhere.

Maggie Austin is generating an exceptional buzz on an international scale with her six-song demo cd, Time and Again. Maggie is an exciting artist whose vocals have won critical acclaim, from artists to music industry executives. Her blend of traditional country themes and contemporary country delivery have made her an innovative and ground breaking artist.

Born in rural Pennsylvania and raised on a farm, Maggie Austin learned at a very early age both country values and her love of country music. The youngest of five children, Maggie spent many hours on the farm doing the two things she loves best: singing and being with horses! Having bred, raised, and trained exceptional Appaloosas, her horses have won national and international champion titles. Additionally, one of her horses was an alternate for the US Olympic Team in the reining division. All on all, Maggie says it best: “My love of country music was born out of my love of country live. There is nothing like being in the barn on a sunny summer afternoon with a light breeze and hearing country music on the radio, mingled with the smell of the outdoors! That’s the best it gets – next to recording and writing!”

There is no denying Maggie Austin’s momentum. The global demand for her music is beyond contention. There is no better time to be a part of her burgeoning success.
