I have known the founder of this charity, Nate Anderson, for quite a while and have watched him with pride as he shares his love of music with others unable to be learn or even be exposed to music as the schools cut back. They have brought instruments, school programs and after school programs to these children. My family and I have helped raise funds and my children have volunteered and are now featured in the ad campaigns.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

The childrens receipt of muscial instruments and the pride as they learn to play them are miraculous. The kids education in the beautiful world of music are so rewarding both for the kids and the community. I love the fact that all kinds of music is involved and even popular artists stand behind the campaign.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

hope that more volunteers can get involved and let their neighbors know to dig out those instruments that haven't been touched in years and donate them to this cause.

I donated a piano to Ear Candy, and have a friend who is active in their events. I'm following their newsletter and plan to donate again. I'm very impressed with their effectiveness, their many events and activities, and the professionalism of their communications and marketing.

An incredible charity that actually performs on their mission without fail or unfulfilled hype. From the founder to the board, they share one single vision that has brought so much joy and relief in these difficult times (which I have witnessed first hand). I am very critical of charity groups with all of the dishonesty these days, but Ear Candy Charity has my full support.

I have worked with many charities throughout my professional career and few come close to meeting or exceeding expectations than Ear Candy. Nate Anderson, the founder of Ear Candy, is both passionate and committed to their mission statement. In a state that currently ranks last (Arizona is 50th) for music education, Nate saw a void that needed to be filled.

several of their instrument drives, talent shows and other community collectives.

look to expand this effort nationwide. I believe that it's imperative to include music education as part of a student's full scholastic experience to afford that student a well rounded education.

Ear Candy Charity has such a fantastic goal of keeping music in our under-funded public school system programs. The founder, Nate Anderson, works tirelessly to gather musical instruments and funding to run this charity and is a truly fantastic person. I highly recommend donating your unused musical instruments, time or money to help keep the music alive.

I got to help when instruments were delivered to a grade school and it was eye opening. The children were all extremely excited to recieve the instruments and be able to play them.

Help them to expand their reach in more cities.
