Welcome to my Mitzvah Project website. With my parents love and support, I have been lucky enough to have the opportunity to learn how to play the guitar and drums. Music is a great way to relieve the stresses of school and homework. However, there are children who are not so fortunate. I will become a Bar Mitzvah in March 2018 and for my Mitzvah Project, I have chosen to support Hungry for Music.
This organization helps to provide musical instruments to children that have a desire to learn music, or teachers who have willing students, but no instruments or are unable to afford musical instruments. By sharing instruments and musical experiences, children who would not normally have the opportunity, can experience a kind of freedom and self-discovery that is often stifled in an atmosphere of economic hardship.
Money donated will help in the following ways:
$30 will purchase and ship one flute
$50 will purchase an acoustic guitar
$100 will purchase and ship a djembe drum
$200 will purchase and ship a clarinet
$350 will purchase and ship an alto sax
$500 will purchase and ship a cello
$1,000 will purchase and ship 20 instruments to a community after-school program
Any amount will be appreciated.
You can also donate used instruments. Instruments that have seen their last days are sent to Landfill Harmonic for parts/overhaul or given to artists to create musical instrument art. Instruments donated are sent throughout the nation as well as internationally. If you wish to donate a muscial instument, you can drop it off at my house, just ask me for my address.
Please help me to give the gift of music to others.
Hungry for Music is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization.
