2010 Christmas Donation Cards are Available Now!!!

November 24, 2010 | By wickley wickley

This year, give the most important gift possible…

Hope.

Every night, children in Kosovo wake up screaming from horrific nightmares about men with guns.  Every day, Protestant and Catholic kids in Northern Ireland cautiously play in segregated communities, always fearing a burst of violence.  Every evening, Ugandan boys and girls trek to urban shelters where they huddle together to evade being kidnapped and forced into becoming child soldiers.

These children live thousands of miles apart, but they all suffer from the trauma of war.  And they are all being cared for by a unique program—The Shropshire Music Foundation—instilling tolerance, emotional healing and peace through music education and performance programs.

And this holiday season, there is a child that needs your help.

This small grassroots organization has become a powerful force in teaching war-traumatized children living in atmospheres of compounding hatred that they can be peacemakers.  The foundation has grown to reach Kosovo, Northern Ireland and Uganda.  However, despite the program’s remarkable growth and successes, funding is at an all-time low.

Give your friend or family member the gift of hope for a suffering child.

Simply click here to make a secure, tax-deductible donation through Paypal. Then email us to receive a beautiful card to give to your neighbor, boss, co-worker, friend or family member.  We can mail the card(s) to you or mail them directly to your recipients.  Just send us an email with your name, their name, and the address(es) that you would like the card(s) mailed to.

The inside of the card will read:

 

“As a gift to you, a donation was made in your name to the Shropshire Music Foundation.  This donation will buy musical instruments and classes for children living in war zones.  More importantly, this gift will instill self-esteem, teach ethnic and religious tolerance, and provide hope for children that have so little.”

We guarantee your friends and family will be touched and inspired by your important gift.  We know that we will be!

May your holiday season be especially bright and peaceful this year.  Thank you, your support means everything to us.
