Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center – DONATION Event

True Joy Acoustics – Thursday May 6, 2010 was “open for business” day!

Ahead of any sale, we started with a FIRST DONATION of FIVE ukuleles to Cincinnati Children’s Hospital in the morning. Each FLEA ukulele was packed with accessories by Clovernook Center for the Blind and Visually Impaired. The instruments go directly into Brian Schreck’s music therapy program. Media from the hospital and local Fox News (channel 19) participated. Nice coverage on 6pm and 10pm broadcasts.

Over 50 ukulele/accessory packs were assembled by a skilled worker team at Clovernook Center for the Blind and Visually Impaired. Awaiting orders!

More news to come. I am confident that Brian and the other 2 music therapists at CCHMC (Jenn Korff, Kathryn Yeager) will put these instruments and kits to great use with children they help at the hospital. Some are there for weeks and months at a time. We’re going back for a visit in about a month to see how it’s going. Fox 19 indicated interest to do a followup story!

Check out this short video (by Margaret McGurk) of Brian and Jenn warming up the first donated FLEA ukulele. Nice rendition of a very familiar song!
