We all enjoy music but imagine if you could not enjoy music because of the expense of buying an instrument. Band of Angels is a charity in the US working to help children who normally would not be able to afford to pursue their love of music.
The charity is based in Overland Park, Kansas. So far they have raised $250,000 for summer music camp scholarships, donated almost 2,000 instruments and provided summer music camp scholarships for 315 young people.
According to their website, Band of Angels address the “financial barriers students face by providing band and orchestra instruments and music camp scholarships to children in need.”
They recently received a donation from an Irish woman and passed on the instruments to the Kansas City Irish Center.
Band of Angels also accept monetary and instrument donations and hold fundraising events such as the Heart Strings Gala charity concert and Art That Blows, a charity art auction.

Well done to Band of Angels for identifying the need for such a charity and for supporting all of these talented children!
