Griffin Charitable trust received a number of musical instruments donated by Canadian music supplier Long & McQuade for our music therapy sessions! Thank you Long & McQuade for your support!
Spokeswoman for Long & McQuade (weblink) Sheri explained why they are supporting our music therapy work,” Long & McQuade has always believed in the power of music. That’s why we’ve raised almost $100,000 nation-wide for music therapy programs at children’s hospitals across the country, and why we often lend a hand to both grassroots and established organizations, at home and abroad, that use music to help and to heal.”
That’s great because Music is deeply entrenched in the Jamaican culture, in fact Jamaica has produced some of the world’s greatest singers and musicians. Not the least of which is our lovely & amazing Youth embassador Kaysha Lee ( all about kaysha click here ). She will definitely make some very good use of the donated musical materials to begin the therapy & healing. Music is more than just expression of feelings, but of healings.
What a talented music teacher for the kids at The Sanctuary we have in Kaysha:
Our children at Griffin Charitable Trust have not had the best start in life! They were exposed to gang and domestic violence on unimaginable levels. The conscious and unconscious trauma of their experiences have played out in their personalities and their social skills. Music has an incredible healing effect in allowing them to express theirs feelings and to triumph over the negativity in their lives.
The gift of musical instruments will not enable our children at The Sanctuary to learn a new musical skill and this will empower them to help other children of the future. Unfortunately and fortunately, because of the limits of resources, our kids will be sharing the donation with Mustard Seed Communities Dare to Care Home for children infected with HIV/AIDS. We would love for every child to have their own musical instrument one day! In the meantime, the aim of setting up a sharing scheme is so that the kids will have a joint Musical Group in the future!
So Our heartfelt thanks to Long & McQuade for making this gift to our children; enabling and empowering through music.
