Love Shouldn’t Hurt. The Feb. 2022 Newsletter

February is the month we celebrate love!  Unless you are one of the almost half a million abused orphans in the U.S. foster care system.  These children have been abused in ways you don’t want to imagine by the very people they trusted to love and protect them.  The life threatening abuse these U.S. orphans has suffered broke their hearts and scarred their souls.

Now these broken children live mostly in group homes, moving on average three times a year with all of their earthly belongs carried in a  trash bag or pillow case. It’s easy to see why they have a hard time believing in love, or even that they are lovable.  These orphans hope and pray for loving families that will open their hearts and homes to them so they can grow up in safe families. The longer they wait, the more hopeless they become.

Each time these orphans have to move, change schools, lose supportive teachers, and friends they were just starting to make, they lose substantial ground academically and emotionally.  Our trauma trained mentors and music instructors don’t change, no matter where the children move to – their mentor/instructor is a constant source of encouragement and healing.

When you say yes to sponsoring a U.S. orphan, a heartbroken, abused child is connected with a mentor that won’t go away.  They receive a musical instrument of their choosing.  It is their very own, which is a really big deal!  Your sponsored orphan will receive weekly therapeutic music lessons that are scientifically proven to help them heal from their trauma and improve their academic outcomes.  They need this healing urgently to have a chance at a productive adult life.

Open your heart to help these wounded children’s hearts heal.  You can write to your sponsored child. Remind them that they are not forgotten.  Tell them there is a better future than their painful past. Show your sponsored child that there are people who love them enough to be a part of their lives and invest in their future.  Just think – instead of a few Starbucks or fast food orders, you can be the lifeline for an orphaned child with a broken heart.  Every dollar counts, no gift is too small.  Please be the love and hope they need to heal and believe in love again.

Serving the children together,

Individual Champions

There are so many ways for individuals to help change the lives of foster children.

Choose a child or children to sponsor for a year.  You can choose to cover the costs of the child’s instrument and lessons, just the lessons, or just the instrument.  You can also choose to give to the area of greatest need.  You can make a single gift or a monthly recurring gift.  And remember, it changes childrens’ lives and is tax deductible as an additional benefit to you.

Business Champions

Businesses that sponsor music lessons and instrument rental for at risk children are first and foremost changing the lives of the most vulnerable children in the U.S. As a thank you for the generosity of our business partners, we provide an effective platform for businesses to build their brand around their corporate generosity.

Research proves that corporations that give back have a significantly higher brand appeal and loyalty rate. Corporations engaged in social good also positively impact their own employees at work satisfaction and company loyalty. Being a champion for at-risk children provides the opportunity for employees to stay in touch with their sponsored child, providing a source of joy and sense of being cared about for children who in many instances have been terribly abused and discarded.

We urgently need your help for thousands of U.S. orphans living in group homes and shelters 

around our country. 

These orphaned children have already experienced so much pain and loss from unimaginable child abuse and neglect.  They need the opportunity to heal through the therapy of playing a musical instrument.   We are an IRS registered 501(c)(3) non-profit organization and your generous gift is tax deductible.
