Ukuleles for 500 Kids!

Do you love music?

Yes.

Has it even saved your life — lifting you from the depths and reminding you how beautiful life really is?

Yes!

So to celebrate our first birthday:

1. We're giving away 50 complimentary strategy sessions to entrepreneurs:

This is no small task. That's at least an hour for a life-changing conversation with each person.

During the session we will:

  • Create a crystal clear vision of:

    • the income you want

    • the amount of independence you need and

    • the impact you want to make

  • Uncover hidden challenges that could be sabotaging your success

  • Leave the session renewed, re-energized, and inspired so that you can get back at it and move forward

My goal is for you to jump out of bed in the morning because you're energized and excited about the day.

I'll wave my fee for these sessions because I am building my coaching practice by invitation and referral only.

All you have to do is be willing to show 100% during the session and I’ll do the same.

These sessions are particularly useful for people at a crossroads who need to make a bold decision.

If you or a friend (as long as they're cool) would like to reap the benefits of this absurd challenge, apply below.

And since I don't know how intense the response will be, I can't guarantee that everyone will get a session — so apply ASAP if you're interested.

2. And for each of these sessions, we're donating a ukulele ($50 value).

We'll give the ukes to elementary school music classes. Students' will transform as they learn:

  • Rhythm, melody, and harmony

  • To express their thoughts and feelings through music and

  • A lifelong skill that brings more beauty into the world

The best part?

Since the instruments are going to classrooms, about 10 children can use each one.

50 ukes x 10 children each = 500 children!

This is what 500 children look like:

Let's do this!

Postscript

Ever heard of Buckminster Fuller? He was the freethinking visionary who coined the term Spaceship Earth.

I once met his daughter, Allegra.

She told me that when her father entered a room, he always spoke with the children first.

He believed you and I, and everyone else, are born geniuses. Unfortunately most peoples' genius gets covered up. Let's change that.

Update 7 Months Later (9/20/18)

Our community supported two schools! One teacher:

Words cannot describe how thrilled I am! Thank you so much for supporting music education at my school! I hope you realize that your donation is making a huge difference in the lives of these students. You are not only showing support for music education but you are showing these students that there are people out there that care about them. That is so heart warming. Pictures coming soon!

With gratitude,
Ms. Evans

And another:

I want you to know that my students were so excited to hear that we got our ukuleles. This was a dream for our students last year to add to more instruments to our music program. Music feeds creativity and artistic ability. Every student, from my sweet kindergrtners to my "thinks they are grown" 5th graders loves to play and sing. 

I see all 800 students every week for music. Our school is 15% special education so even our most severe autistic children will get to play the ukulele and experience music in a special way. Music is universal. It doesn't see race, age, gender or ability. I can't wait to see how the ukuleles are going to open up new talents that the students didn't realize they had.

With gratitude,
Mrs. Hendrix
