"I don't want to help…I need to help" Des Hague Co-Founder Aegis Enterprises
Stamford, CT (PRWEB) August 27, 2015
Des Hague, co-founder of Aegis Enterprises, LLC. and known philanthropist is delighted to have joined Lessons For Life as an advisor. Lessons for Life is a not-for-profit organization based out of San Francisco which provides financially challenged youth with free, one-on-one music lessons. The nonprofit was recently featured in Sheryl Sandberg's book Lean In (http://leanin.org/stories/sonya-shadan/ ) and is also supported by Cody Simpson as Celebrity Ambassador of the cause (http://www.gofundme.com/lessonsforlife).
"For years I have been involved with numerous causes. Learning music is integral to a child’s development and is largely underfunded. Lessons for Life is taking the initiative to make music accessible for our children," stated Hague before adding, "I met with Sonya, and this 22-year-old overwhelmed me with her passion and caring. Sonya is an inspiration. I am humbled and I don't just want to help, I need to help. Sonya is committed to make a difference with Lessons for Life," added Hague.
Sonya is equally delighted to have Des join the cause: "It is not everyday that a well respected leader will take a call out of the blue and within minutes not only agrees to provide insights but to actually get involved. I am thrilled to have Des on the team," stated the young CEO.
Lessons for Life is a certified 501(c)3 organization that has helped countless inspiring musicians have the opportunity to participate in their passion.
