My mission is to put ukuleles into the hands of children that are battling cancer and to remind the community that life is not all about personal happiness. We raise money through fundraisers and donations to give ukuleles and free lessons to kids with cancer.
In life, there is one thing that you must have when you are going through a difficult time, and that is love and friendship. We have to make sure that when others are going through tough times that we lend a hand because when we are struggling, we would want the same.
We show teens that they are not too young to spend their time helping others.
Throughout the year we host events like concerts, talent shows, Chick-fil-A nights, and more to grow our mission and raise money.
We give ukuleles
Our main mission is to provide music to kids going through cancer, and we're starting with ukuleles.
We love talking. Sharing stories, provide new ideas, being there for each other, and answering questions. Please don't be afraid to say hello!
The reason that I started this mission is because it is so easy to make someone's day a little happier. A ukulele is a great way to get involved in music, to express emotion, and to try something new.
For only about $45.00, you can purchase a ukulele for a pediatric cancer patient. Due to the fact that we are small, we are only able to give ukuleles one at a time as we get donations and fund-raise. Donate today to help our mission thrive.
Hi, my name is Andrew Lakey. I am 18 years old. It is my goal to help people, inspire the community, make kids smile, and help them through tough times. I figured that if I could just start out by helping one person at a time I could make a difference- slowly but surely, all around the world.
Glen Schubert is my mentor who helps me run Music Heals Us. He is the creator of a non-for-profit charity called Instruments of Change. He helps me raise money, plan events, and help these awesome kids!
