I’m sure you have seen the heartbreaking images of innocent children suffering in Ukraine. Watching a child suffer is more than most of us can take. While doing what we can to help Ukrainian children, we must not forgot that U.S. children who have experienced unimaginable horrors are right here in our own towns and cities. The crimes committed against them are not broadcast on global television.
They are chronicled in police reports, state child welfare reports, hospitals, and child psychologist reports. One of our board members worked for one of these entities and describes some of the horrors she read and saw,
“I just couldn’t believe a human being could do this to a child! Much less the child’s parent! Some days, I sat and cried over the photos of children. Some children didn’t survive. In some instances it was miraculous that they survived. For others, the horrible damage done to these vulnerable children may take a lifetime to heal. Repeated sexual assault, broken bones, starvation, children traded for the night so a parent could get their drug fix. Once the children were rescued and the physical wounds tended to, the deep emotional wounds remain. No child should have to endure what they have and not be given the tools they need to heal.”
While the physical abuse was stopped, the emotional trauma continues. Haunting memories, incessant nightmares with no loving parent to hold and comfort them. They don’t have consistent, loving adults in their lives because they move from group home to group home, school to school three times a year on average. Who can they trust to help them heal?
This is exactly why what All Kids Need Music does is so very important. But we can’t do it without you. When you say yes to sponsoring a U.S. orphan, a heartbroken, abused child is connected with a loving mentor that won’t go away. Instead of carrying all of their worldly belongings in a garbage bag or pillowcase when they move, they get to pick out a own musical instrument. It is their very own, which is a really big deal! Then, 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.
You might not be able to stop what is happening in Ukraine, but you can help children right here at home heal from the atrocities they have endured. We simply can’t do it without you. Please help – every dollar counts.
Can you help with $25 a month? Maybe the cost of just 5 Starbucks, or one trip through the drive-thru? It’s not much to you but it is life changing to these children who have suffered far more than any child should ever have to.
Serving the children together,

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.
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. As a result of our financial transparency and integrity, we have been awarded the Guidestar Gold Transparency Seal. You can trust us that your tax deductible gift goes to change abused orphans lives. Please do what you can to help these children!
