I found this organization online while looking for a place to donate a violin. I’m moving and could not take it with me. Within an hour someone picked it up, saving me the trouble of going out . I hope a child who cannot afford an instrument will enjoy and learn how to play the violin as I did in Grade school and high school.
I have had the pleasure of seeing this organization in action. They are helpful, knowledgeable and sincere in what they do. Keep on showing the passion...it does make a difference
What a great idea! Getting musical instruments in the hands of kids who otherwise might not be able to afford them. Music For Hope works through schools and other organizations to get donated instruments where they can change a life! Music has been so important to me in my life, and the folks who work with Music For Hope are so dedicated, that it gives me great pleasure (and warm fuzzies) to see the horns, violins, guitars, drums, etc. being delivered to youngsters. Just imagine the excitement of handling an instrument, where there wasn't one before!
I found Music for Hope after looking for an organization that not only provided a valuable community resource but also matched my strengths and interests. It did not take long to discover that the people involved in the organization had a tremendous amount of heart and determination for doing what they do. Everyone involved is constantly pushing the organization and each other toward higher goals. Most importantly, the end goals of helping children who lack the resources for participating in music and increasing community participation in music are always at the forefront of the organization's aim.
Music for HOPE is an exceptional organization. To empower young people with the gift of music is one of the most inspirational things anyone can do. Playing an instrument in a band gives kids many positive skills to be successful in the world. As it is said, "music in the universal language" and as a child embarks on the path of learning music, they learn ways to communicate with people of all walks of life.
What Music for HOPE does is help kids find their voice in the world. It gives them hope and experience to make a positive difference in the world.
In these times when the arts are being cut from the school programs, organizations like Music for HOPE are more needed then ever to help kids gain access to musical participation and expression.
It is a joy and an honor to volunteer with Music for HOPE!
Music for Hope is one of the most addictive non profit organizations that I have had the distinct pleasure of working with on a notable cause. I have seen first hand how these kids transform their thinking, attitude and passion to succeed. Children deserve a fighting chance in our society to experience many opportunities that will give them a well rounded education and tools to be successful in their endeavors throughout life. I was a poor kid and had to rely on family and friends to be able to get involved in a music program. We didn't have a program such as this. I wish we had! I can say that music has played a major part in my life since I picked up my first instrument. I have gone on to teach music privately and also go into under developed schools and help with music programs on that level as well. I have also pursued music in my own life and have never given up on that dream. I want to instill in others that they to can do this regardless of economic situation. I want lie and say it is easy because it isn't but when you have something to shoot for then it makes all the hard work pay off. Guess I have said enough but when you read this I hope that you can feel the passion in which it was written. Have a beautiful day and keep music alive!
