The NIR Group, Corey Ribotsky managing partner, is involved in many organizations and foundations as supporters. Among these varied groups is a unique and special organization known as the Heather on Earth Music Foundation.
The Foundation was named in memory of Heather Samone Fessler, who left this world on September 28, 1985. The mission of Heather on Earth is to bring the gift and beauty of music to children and their families who are struggling with serious illness, in order to lift spirits, inspire, relax, distract and calm raw nerves.
It is well known that listening to music can strengthen the immune system, alleviate pain, decrease anxiety, and help young patients comply and participate in their own care. Heather on Earth hopes to bring a little beauty and hope to what might otherwise be a frightening and distressing experience.
