Recently, shelter clients met with local musician Julia Mark to create their very own song. They wanted the world to know that life was getting better, and that they had hope for the future. They wanted the song to be uplifting and joyful. The result was a song entitled "All We Need" with a powerful message about love and hope. Click here to watch the video.
"All We Need" Lyrics
They're some things I've been dreaming of
I don't need a lot of stuff
And I've got a lot of life to live
I just need a lot of love
I've got a lot of love to give
So I'm gonna keep on looking up
Gonna put my worries on an outbound train
I've got this hope that I cannot contain
Your love is my umbrella when it starts to rain
When the storm has passed, only simple things remain
That's all I need today
All we need
Oh it's all we need
I've been dreaming of a place of my own
All those bad, bad days go on and leave me alone
And when the darkness starts to creep
And there's no respite in my sleep
I'm gonna keep on searching for the sun

From January 25 - 31, they are asking customers to upload a picture showing a smile with the hashtag #SmileWithBonMe. You can also participate by mentioning the campaign at Bon Me's new Chestnut Hill location. Make sure to change your settings so the photos and check-ins are PUBLIC and count towards the campaign.
