What is #GivingTuesdayCa?
GivingTuesday is a global movement for giving and volunteering, taking place each year after Black Friday. The “Opening day of the giving season,” it’s a time when charities, companies and individuals join together and rally for favourite causes. In the same way that retailers take part in Black Friday, the giving community comes together for GivingTuesday.
What is Music Heals?
Music Heals raises awareness and funds that provide access to music therapy for those who need it most. Music therapy is used in a variety of medical and rehabilitation settings. Programs in hospitals, rehabilitation facilities, community centres, and schools serve infants in the NICU, children with autism, at-risk youth, individuals with disabilities, people recovering from addiction, those in hospice, and seniors with dementia or Alzheimer’s.
We all know the saying: “One for all, and all for one,” but what does it really mean?
Music Heals is asking music lovers to put words into action and donate $75 to make an impact in the life of 1 person in their community. $75 will cover the cost of one music therapy session and will help Music Heals get closer to their fundraising goal– making music therapy not only attainable, but a consistent method of healing.
This December 3rd we are asking you to make an impact on your community. Your donation of $75 direct impacts human beings from all walks of life. Your donation could help an infant in the NICU grow, teach communication to a child on the autism spectrum, spark memory in a senior with dementia, and bring comfort to those who are in end of life care.
It only takes one person to change another person’s life. So this Giving Tuesday we’re calling on our supporters to prove that we’re one for all, and all for one!
Donate by clicking the “Give” button and entering $75 or any denomination you see fit.
