Rural kids need your help!
Gift of Music, an initiative of Rural Aid (the charity behind Buy a Bale), came about from a request for help from a number of rural schools, for musical instruments. We thought, how many other schools out there need instruments too? Hence Gift of Music was born.
It is widely acknowledged that music, learning music and being part of an ensemble, can play a significant role in students’ learning outcomes. We know through our own children’s school activities that there aren’t always the instruments available. So when a rural school asked us to help them write a grant for musical instruments, we thought ‘hang on we can do one better!’
We’re confident that there are thousands of instruments across Australia, under beds or in cupboards, that aren’t being used. So we’re asking all Australians who have an instrument not in use, to donate it so we can share the resources around. If you would like to help Gift of Music with a cash donation, we will put this towards the purchase of instruments that are on teachers’ request lists, the repair of useful donated instruments and their distribution.
The gift of music can change a child’s life. The gift of an instrument to a rural school in need, can change many children’s lives.
