I hope you are doing well! It’s been an extremely busy couple of months here, but as always, we are so grateful to be playing a role in changing the future for our nation’s most vulnerable children. You probably heard about the recent fatal shooting at the transitional group home in Phoenix. It was all over the news and it was as unnecessary as it was tragic. The shooting brought attention to just how poorly prepared to face the world children are when they age out of the foster care system without ever being adopted.
- Eight out of ten suffer from serious mental health issues.
- One in two become addicted.
- One in four have a baby.
- One in five become homeless.
- One in five will be incarcerated.
It was not their fault that their parents horribly abused them. It wasn’t their fault that they didn’t get adopted. Nor can we blame them for the damage done by shuffling from group home to group home, falling further behind in school, and eventually shutting their hearts and minds down to the hope of being loved. Twenty-thousand children a year!
We CAN help them, and we NEED to. Our therapeutic music program helps these wounded children heal from their traumatic experiences, improves their mental health, and benefits their academic performance. Together, we can provide the necessary healing that will change the future for our nation’s most vulnerable children. They do not have to be doomed to a lifetime of brokenness and heartbreak. Please join me in helping them heal. No gift is too small, and every child’s life is worth intervening in. Please help.
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!
