Charity Music, Inc.
October 17, 2012

Charity Music continues to touch lives with music. Many things are happening. Let me name a few... Currently, the annual donation drive is occurring. The more instruments donated, the more can go out to those in need. Earlier this year, CM was awarded a grant from State Farm. CM received enough votes to catapult it into the top 40 winners! This grant was instrumental (ha!) in keeping many projects afloat. It is an honor for CM to be invited to participate in the SE Michigan area Combined Federal Campaign. The Campaign gives federal employees the opportunity to support their community by contributing to a non-profit organization of their choice through payroll deductions. The Musical Instrument Petting Zoo gives children, as well as adults a hands-on experience of instruments. The Instrument Loan Program provides instruments on loan for a fee of $35.00 per year. I am a proud volunteer! The lives that have been touched are many and continues to grow.

I am still volunteering and currently working on an exciting project, Notes of Appreciation - Music for Our Military. We have contacted VA Facilities across the country to support their music therapy programs by fulfilling musical needs, such as instruments, sheet music, CDs and other related items. Many facilities have conveyed their gratefullness for the items that they have received thus far. Charity Music is really making a difference for our veterans!!

Charity Music is a great organization! It places donated instruments with homeless and at-risk youth, as well as other individuals. I put my organizational skills to work categorizing many items that were donated. I also assisted in the day-to-day operation at the Volunteer Center. The CEO, Roger Fachini is truly dedicated to his cause. I didn't realize that volunteering could be so much fun!

The Great!

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

What I gained from my volunteering experience is that it was so much more than just giving my time. It was a learning experience for me as well. Charity Music is interested in the development of youths - be it by placing an instrument in their hands, or by providing an opportunity/avenue for them express themselves in other ways

Ways to make it better...

No changes at this time...just keep on spreading their knowledge, joy and good work.
