Music 4 Kidz

The Problem

MUSIC 4 KIDZ works towards building the community through the sharing of musical interests with children who are in the hospital. What would you do if you were a child in the hospital? How else would you spend your time after watching hours of television and reading numerous books? For children in the hospital, it is hard to go out and buy CDs or even to purchase songs on iTunes!

Plan of Action

First, students and teachers develop an interest in Music 4 Kidz from one of the organization's numerous listings on volunteer databases like volunteermatch.org, dosomething.org, and volunteersolutions.org. Next, students are given the opportunity to donate $1 or more to be used to purchase their favorite song or songs. Once the songs are purchased on iTunes Music Store, they are burned once and compiled into an assortment of CDs. At the same time, students are also given the opportunity to design album covers. Finally, the CDs are donated to local hospitals so that children staying in the hospital can listen to them.
