Wish 17- The gift of music



Photobucket Pictures, Images and Photos

A few years ago my parents went to a Barry Manilow concert and really liked his request for the audience to bring along any unwanted music instruments which would be passed onto school children.

Music is one of those things I think everyone should have a chance to learn yet often families struggle or find it impossible to provide an instrument and lessons for their child. Barry Manilow's project is fantastic and at the moment a similar campaign is being run in the UK by James Rhodes Instrument Amnesty

Here are a few links to similar projects;

Cello's and violins for London children
Dorothy Croft Trust helping talented 17-25 year olds
Sistema England
A list of American groups

If you have any istruments in your loft or the  back of a cupboard please consider donating it to one of the above projects and bring the joy of music to a child.

I would love to hear or see pictures if you take part with any of my wishes and will read them on my birthday (21/12). My contact details are my30wishes@hotmail.com and Vikki C/O Post Pals, PO Box 278, Leatherhead, Surrey, KT23 4WN, England. Thank you
