My Nonprofit Reviews
Review for MusicLink Foundation, Arlington, VA, USA
My favorite non-profit organization is MusicLink. Throughout my life music has helped me express joy, sorrow, contentment, worship, stress and many other emotions. I can't imagine my life without it. When I heard there was an organization that helped financially challenged young people have affordable lessons on a musical instrument, I was very happy. Since I am a piano teacher, I volunteered to take a MusicLink student. I have never been sorry. I live in a culturally diverse area and through my fifteen or so years of volunteering I have had students from many countries ad cultures. Becoming friends with them and their families has enriched my life and broadened my horizons. It has been a joy to see the students learn and grow in their musical skills. My first MusicLInk student was from Central America. Her parents were so supportive ad happy that she could have lessons. I had another family who were here on political asylum because their people were oppressed in their home country. The two daughters in that family are fine musicians today. Anyone who contributes to MusicLink will be helping to add a lifetime joy to some young person.
