Great News for Ukes, and the Kids
Who Love Them!

The Winter Delivery Drive is Delivering

Dear friend,

Like the snows of winter, or even sooner, our ukulele wait list is about to disappear! 

The reality of music therapy is that there are many more hospitalized kids needing instruments than we can deliver. But the good news is that thanks to the donors who supported our Winter Delivery Drive, we are shipping out, right now, to our current waitlist of kids who have been eagerly awaiting their ukes.

These 18 hospitals throughout the U.S. will receive their shipments between now and mid-February. Overall, in just 5 years we have given more than 7,100 ukuleles to music therapy programs helping children with serious health conditions.

We thank all of our hospital and music therapist partners for their patience.

With the guidance of a board-certified music therapist, a child using a Ukulele Kids Club uke can better cope with their stay in the hospital, and even realize improved health.  Thanks to you, our supporters, for helping us give these children the tools they need right now to feel better, and transform their lives. Check out Lilliana's story below - just one of the dozens of stories we get every month that share the power of music therapy through ukulele.

Thank you all!

This is Lillianna, holding her very own Ukulele Kids Club uke! Lillianna is a heart transplant patient, so she has been readmitted to the hospital, for follow-ups and a new medicine and shot regimen. Her music therapist, Christine MT-BC, writes, "Last week, when she learned she would be getting her very own ukulele, she could barely contain her excitement!  We wrote a little song about the way she would decorate her ukulele (adding a peace frog sticker) and she discussed learning to play with her Grandfather who plays the guitar, and also helps her get through her daily shots. This new gift of music, coping, and bonding will be travelling back to local Ronald McDonald House with Lillianna today as she is discharged."

Our work is never complete. As long as there are kids in hospitals, we will support their music therapy goals. Help us continue our work with a donation today!
