Together We Can Make a Difference
Thank you so very much for helping Guitars in the Classroom to train teachers to lead musically enriched lessons in their regular K-8 classrooms in 2011. Together we have helped them bring creativity, success, and hope for the future to students around the nation. As you express your love of music through your charitable contribution, you empower others to discover music's power, beauty, and healing properties as well as its capacity to help children learn and grow. All of us at GITC are immensely grateful to share your conviction and give it a place to grow.
Now as the work gathers strength & academic impact, the need for music in the schools is burgeoning as the result of budget cuts to education and the arts. Your gifts here on Global Giving are mattering more than ever before
This coming year, in addition to reaching preschoolers, and students with special needs, also those learning English as a second language and children at risk in Title I schools, your contribution will empower GITC to provide guitars and support music programs in neighborhood YMCAs, reaching more kids after school. GITC can do this now because you have been with us all the way!
Wishing you a New Year of true peace, health, and happiness! Let's get 2012 started out right. If you wish to make an end-of year contribution, we invite you to visit our Holiday Tribute Card campaign right here on Global Giving!
With immeasurable thanks for your empathy and partnership,
