Guitars For Kids program

From Sheldon r Neal

For over 15 years I've been doing this little project we call "Guitars For Kids". It is 100% about keeping young people involved in music-for their own benefit

More Info

 I purchase a bunch of guitars every year and give them to young people.  I use the stage at the Nor-East'r Music & Art Festival as our platform and to focus on young people in our more rural communities of Northern Michigan-But our giving is not limited by any boarders, income, interest or achievement.  We find kids that we think will benefit from this offer.  It is 100% a gift.  We do not ask for the child's address or financial situation, family situation or school achievements.    The kids apply for the guitar using a short form that gives us a bit of an idea of who the kids are and what they might do with the instrument.  Its a very simple process.   Its not exact science-just a heartfelt gift to see a young person benefit from an opportunity to play music on a guitar. I've seen first hand how a young person can benefit from having some type of musical outlet and a guitar seems to work for most.   Its a ton of work trying to keep a little program like this alive, but somehow its been going for over 15 years.  Your generosity is greatly appreciated.   Your donation IS TAX DEDUCTIBLE - Please, Give generously and I promise your donation will be used to purchase a guitar for a deserving young person.  Always feel free to contact me if you want any additional information.  Thanks so much for your help!
