How an 18-year old inspired donations to animal charities from the Beyond
The spirt of Elizabeth (Lizzie) Collazo has moved Bennett & KC Chesne to create a collection of music to honor her and to honor a cause very dear to her by donating proceeds to animal charities.
The song, Lizzie (Take you with me), is the single and the first video created for this album. The song describes the mother, KC, finding ways to keep her daughter involved in her life and the lives of her siblings since 2004, the year of Lizzie going on to the next world. Bennett wrote the first song (which is actually the third song on the album) right before the funeral and played it at the gathering after the service. So, you can say this album has been 14 years in the making.
Lizzie loved animals and often used to bring home strays, hiding them in her room from her parents. To honor Lizzie, we are donating half of all proceeds to animal charities. We believe this is what she would want to do. This is our way of honoring and keeping her with us.
The animal charities we are donating to on Lizzie’s behalf are:
Animal Welfare Institute
