The GRACE (Get Real And Change Everything) program was started by Don and his close friend Aron. The program was created because Don realized that he has a real gift for connecting with kids and getting them to open up and to reflect on who they really are. Along with the musical talents of Don and Aron they have created something powerful and special.

Motivation for this comes from the death of Don’s daughter Grace who never had a chance at life and Don’s wife who was a victim of bullies throughout her time in school. Don is also deeply saddened to hear about parents who have lost their children because they could not take the bullying anymore. His heart goes out to those parents and on some level he can relate to their loss.
