Instrument Drive - Final Numbers!!!!

 

93 Instruments Donated
41 Donation Sites Participated
6 Successful Events
 

This is what Ear Candy is all about!!  Our mission is to Create and Support Music Programs for Kids!!!  The instruments we collected in our First Instrument Drive will be used to help create and resurrect programs all over the valley.  We are working closely with the Washington & Roosevelt School Districts, after school programs like Teen Central in the Phoenix Library, inspiring organizations like Tumbleweed Center for Youth Development, and progressive arts institutions like Metro School for the Arts to find homes and students to appreciate these instruments.
 
The impact that these instruments will make is the tip of the iceberg of what we intend to do for music education in the valley, state, region, country!!!  Do you realize how many children are going to have an opportunity to experience the joy of learning, creating and sharing music because of all this?  It's crazy to think that Hundreds of Kids will benefit from instruments that were just sitting in a closet or donated from a caring musician artist that shares the vision of music as our universal language!!!
 
There will be many stories from this drive that have yet to come to light, like where does the trombone from 1917 end up?  What child is developing into the next Wynton Marsalis because of your trumpet donation?  Did we just find a bridge for this kid to transition his Rock Band skills into becoming the next Jimi Hendrix?  These stories amidst thorough coverage of every instrument and their new homes will be shared with you, please share with others that believe in what we are committed to!!!
 
And yes, we will continue to collect instruments throughout the year at all
Ear Candy events. Our youth's music programs need them all the time, so please continue this inspiring momentum.  And if you don't have an instrument, you can still support by making a Tax Deductible Donation and attend exciting Ear Candy events, or become a Volunteer.
 
We have a lot of fun, we do a lot of good, and it's all in the music!!!
 
You can't imagine how wide this smile is!!!!
