After our trip to Haiti in 2012, we want to continue helping people there through music.
Our good friend Musset Pierre-Jerome has an uncle in the town of Jérémie, Haiti who formed a choir composed of orphans. He would love to receive musical instruments so that children can learn to play music and create a music band to accompany the choir. Musset is headed there in October with donated musical instruments that are sure to strike a positive chord.
At the end of August, we will also ship wind instruments, guitars, tambourines, and whatever functioning musical instruments we can find. So far we have some recorders, 2 complete drum sets, 3 guitars… and we’re looking for more!
With our Artivism, we target specific projects and get directly involved with them to ensure that 100% of all donations get to where they are intended to go… for their intended purpose. There’s no such thing as too much. Once Musset’s uncle has his choir humming with a band, we will deliver more instruments to our friends at the Haiti Music School and the Little Brothers and Sisters Orphanage in Kenscoff, Haiti.
In 2012, we traveled to Haiti with supplies and filmed a documentary about life for kids in Haiti. We played a couple of shows and gave music lessons in the tent villages, all thanks to donors who generously provided music instruments. The REAL work was done by our Haitian friends, who regularly deliver music lessons to people whose lives sometimes could use a song…
You CAN help! Donate your loved musical instrument and make a positive difference in Haiti. Contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we will find a way to collect your musical instrument and get it to its grateful new musician, so YOU can change a life through music.
If you are coming to the CNE on Aug 18, 2013 when we open for the Beach Boys, you can bring your instrument there and we will arrange to ship them at the end of the month.
