Volunteer & Philanthropist
Although young in years, Michael Aniolelli has already found his greatest passion: helping others. It’s a goal that he achieves on a daily basis, from carrying out small acts of kindness to managing major projects. In his view, serving one’s community is something that can be accomplished every single day. Every bit of positive effort counts!
Throughout the years, Michael Aniolelli has dedicated his energy and free time to a variety of charities and nonprofits. He has offered over 200 hours of his personal time as a volunteer at local nursing homes and over 100 hours working with children and adults with special needs. These experiences helped to shape his passion for philanthropy and charity work. Beyond his volunteerism, Aniolelli has also supported charitable organizations the likes of:
- St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital
- American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (ASPCA)
- Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals
- Covenant House
In the future, Aniolelli hopes to establish a nonprofit centered around music and the arts. A lifelong instrumentalist, music has always been one of his greatest creative outlets. He finds the process of creating and playing music to be incredibly therapeutic. In the past, he has introduced others to music as a form of expression and creativity. The joy that music sparks in others truly fascinates Aniolelli, who hopes to spread that same delight on a larger scale.
For now, this musically motivated volunteer is studying up on music related charities by supporting already existing initiatives. In particular, he is inspired by the work completed by Jack Johnson’s Johnson Ohana Charitable Foundation, Linkin Park’s Music for Relief, Incubus’s Make Yourself Foundation and VH1’s Save The Music Foundation.
Michael Aniolelli looks forward to empowering and motivating others through music.
He’s happy to work with individuals of all backgrounds and abilities. He hopes to continue this goal through his membership on the Bartering Exchange Network!
