Amorah LOVES music. She grinned from ear to ear as she rattled off her favorite up and coming pop stars including Justin Bieber, Hannah Montana, and Selena Gomez. We at The Monday Life are much too old to recognize these artists, but if we did hypothetically download Justin Bieber’s breath-taking “My World 2.0″ album or dance around during our lunch break to Selena Gomez’s hit single “Shake It Up”, I’m sure we would be just as excited to talk about them. This is getting us EXCITED! But that’s beside the point. Amorah loves to play music…she loves to make music…she loves to dance to music. But how is she supposed to sing and dance when she’s stuck in a hospital room that doesn’t provide the means necessary to do so? That’s a problem…
So here’s what we’re going to do about it:
We’re going to provide children’s hospitals with MUSIC. And no, that doesn’t mean providing them with iTunen’s gift cards. It means hiring certified music therapists to spend time with the kids, learn their favorite songs and teach them how to play them, dance with them, laugh with them…It means making sure that every hospital room is equipped with a radio, or a noise machine, so that the little ones can sleep soundly listening to their favorite lullaby. It means giving Amorah the opportunity to sing and dance whether she’s in a hospital or not. By the time we’re doing providing these kids with MUSIC, they’ll have record labels banging down the hospital doors looking for the next pop superstar.
