The Ukedelics and Donna Frost and the Ukeabilly Upstarts will be joining together again to raise funds for the Ukulele Kids Club. Come on out to support a fantastic cause!
Ukulele Kids Club Inc. is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization for the mission of donating ukuleles to children’s hospitals nationwide for music therapy programs. We also send the kids home with the instruments as gifts of music “for life.” The therapeutic benefits are amazing for sick children. We have already made donations to Nicklaus Children’s Hospital, Joe DiMaggio Children’s Hospital, Phoenix Children’s Hospital, St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital, and Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center in New York… 120 pediatric hospitals in all in our first 18 months. With 140 hospitals now wait-listed for ukulele donations, we have many more to go and plan to replenish the instruments at each hospital as the children are identified by a board certified music therapist.
There are over 500 Children’s Hospitals nationwide. We have seen the magic of music first hand and it’s therapeutic power for the children and their families.
