Amazing organization that donates instruments and teaches inmates music and DJ'ing in juvenile detention and adult prisons, bringing hope and light to these individuals. I have met the founder of this org, and she is a truly amazing, giving person who cares! The organization has an extremely talented and experienced staff and has incredible support from governments, private businesses and other nonprofits. Making a difference, one instrument at a time!
