Our Difference

Dear Supporters, 

Today we would like to share with you a testimonial from a social worker who witnessed first hand the power that Sing me a Story can have on the recipients of the songs. 

Here is Kathryn's story:

“I just wanted to personally thank Sing me a Story for all the work you both did for Sam’s song.  The amount of joy and love that came from this one song was incredible. For the past couple of weeks, Sam and his family have been staying at Roger’s House because Sam was nearing the end of life.

The family was constantly listening and singing this song for Sam.  They really felt like the song was perfect for Sammy and perfect for their other children to show Sam their love. A really special moment that I witnessed was about two days ago. The entire family was sitting outside in the bright shining sun with Sam.  I could see them from the window inside that they were trying to take a picture of all 7 or 8 of them.  (A selfie that is). So I went outside to go help them with this only to realize that they were all gathered around a very sick Sam singing his song that you wrote.   It was so beautiful.  Very difficult to hold back the tears.

So Sam passed away around 7:30 this morning peaceful with his entire family.  But I did hear that last night when they thought that Sam might pass away, they all sat around him to sing his song to him again.

I just wanted to let you know how special this song really was to them.  And how the song was such apart of their journey and way used as a huge way to express their love for him.

THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU!”
