Ukulele Kids Club, Inc.

Health & Human Services
To harness the healing power of music by promoting and supporting music therapy programs for hospitalized children, by giving away ukuleles to children in need through music therapy programs and sending the children home with the gift of music for life, and by advocating for the benefits of music therapy. Medical research shared by the American Music Therapy Association reports music provides amazing therapeutic benefits to sick children: assisting with pain management, decreasing the anxiety of hospitalization, and providing emotional support during medical procedures. The child-sized ukulele is the perfect instrument for this work. As of March 2015, the UKC had donated over 500 ukuleles to more than 80 children's hospitals around the country. Many of our hospitals are on their third, fourth, even fifth batch of ukuleles - a testament to the program's success and efficacy.
