The Ukulele Kids Club RockStar Program
Read on to learn about a program promoting the healing power of music via music therapists and lovely little ukuleles that is helping thousands of hospitalized children.
About The Ukulele Kids Club …
To a child, a hospital can be a scary place. We’re the Ukulele Kids Club, and we’re here to help.
The UKC is an international charity that has helped thousands of children around the world to overcome the stress, anxiety and health challenges of serious health conditions through the power of music. With the help of a music therapist and a fun little ukulele (that the child gets to play and keep!) The UKC is touching the lives of hospitalized children and their families in transformative ways.
To date, the UKC has gifted over 8000 ukuleles to hospitalized children!
A bit of our story with The UKC and The UKC Rockstar Program …
We first learned about The UKC while doing some research for a project called Luthiers for a Cause. Through that project we fell in love with the founders of The UKC and the work this organization does. Too, thanks to lots of hard work from a great team of folks, the project was hugely successful and raised over $130,000 for The UKC!
Fast forward and we have been involved in one way or another ever since. Currently Jay is an active Board member and I serve in an advisory position. As such, we are constantly trying to think of ways to help raise funds and awareness – to help more kids! In one such brainstorming session we cooked up The UKC RockStar Program. Through this program individuals get to choose a participating hospital to essentially adopt. As their Rockstar you have an opportunity to ensure their music therapy program stays supplied in ukuleles and, because operating costs are covered by corporate sponsorship, you are assured that 100% of your contribution goes toward programing. Now that is the kind of give-back that we love! As a RockStar your $500 contribution get the first 10 ukes out to your hospital to go into children’s hands. Our goal is to have a RockStar for every one of the 150+ participating hospitals ensuring no kid in need goes without. We invite you to learn more …
