Do Fun Stuff: A Fun Compilation Of Children’s Songs Benefiting SMS

Do Fun Stuff Vol. 1, is a fun compilation of children’s songs put together by Ryan Marshall who writes the blog Pacing the Panic Room. The recent tribute to Hotslings, features “Ladybug” by Rabbit!, one of my favourite tracks off the CD. Do Fun Stuff, is to be the first of of a yearly compilation, benefitting SMS. Rabbit!, Cracker Jackson, RickoLus, Scampi, Radical Face, Davey Rocker, Steve Foxbury and Astronautalis are the groups featured on this year’s CD.

Inspired by his step-son’s love of music, who was diagnosed with Smith Magenis Syndrome in late 2009, Ryan decided to create a children’s record to help raise raise funds and awareness towards Smith-Magenis Syndrom. PRISMS is the one non-profit organization that really provides a glimpse into the complexities and challenges that lie ahead. 100% of the proceeds from the sale of Do Fun Stuff will go into a grant fund established by PRISMS and the money made available to grad students who select Smith Magenis Syndrome as their field of choice. This is in the hopes of generating more intense case studies to provide parents, and researchers with new and important information about the mysteries of Smith Magenis Syndrome.

The music from this record is a cross between folk, The Beatles and Yo Gabba Gabba!. In other words – my daughter loves it! You can listen to clips by visiting DoFunStuff.net, or you can purchase the CD directly through iTunes.
