What makes our FLEA ukulele donation program so rewarding?
The smiles in this picture!
Accompanied by Kaitlyn Baker in the Music Therapy room, a patient from South Carolina enjoys a special moment. The “banjo ukulele” being played is the 68th ukulele donated to Music Therapy at Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center.
Who is Kaitlyn Baker? This question is sure to become rhetorical as her career soars! A young performing artist from Virginia, Kaitlyn shared her talents by performing at the hospital and creating individual patient time.
The first highlights the work and “escaping” aspirations in a small mining town. The second video shares the tale of a relationship that turns a bit “incendiary”!
Special thanks goes to Caleb Hastings, MT-BC, the neurologic music therapist at CCHMC who made me aware of this special artist and moment.
Donations on this scale would not be possible without generous support from individuals and businesses, including those who purchase our instruments.
