We are pleased to announce that we offer tax-deductible gifting of harps and facilitating to Children’s hospitals, special needs groups, senior communities, specialized camps for children with terminal illnesses, community groups, rehabilitation centers, school programs and after school programs. We invite you to look at the many ways that your financial gift can bring music to people in these settings and more by exploring this website. Your gift may be ear-marked for a certain area provided we have a facilitator to introduce the program or you may designate it for the greatest need.

Your gift may be of any amount. Even the smallest amount can be added to the greatest need. The most beneficial amounts to offer these community music-making opportunities are as follows:

Your gifts

Our Platinum Level – a gift of $8,000 + will provide a facility such as rehabilitation hospitals, children’s hospitals, senior centers with the full program with multiple harps and a trained facilitator for an extended period of time OR multiple facilities with a couple of harps and a facilitator.

Our Gold Level – a gift of $4,000 +  will enable us to launch our in house television program to hospitals, retirement homes and other facilities where children, adults and seniors can play along with a facility harp that has been donated. In order to continue the lessons, the in-house TV presentation will direct them to devices such as ipads, iphones or computers to access more lessons in the future that have been created already in the Rainbow of Sound™ program.

It is only a matter of getting these lessons and harps into facilities. This donation will serve the most people throughout time and it is the personal goal of Christina Tourin (founder of the program) to offer our trained facilitators to facilities to bring this creative endeavor and enjoyment to patients and residents. (Note: these harps can be disinfected without damaging the strings and finish).

SNImg1Our Silver Level – a gift of $1,500 + will provide trained therapeutic music graduates to serve by the bedside in hospitals. We have many communities where there are trained graduates that are in need of funding. Some areas of the country are not privileged as in Texas, where the Baylor Hospital system ,received 1 million dollars just alone for therapeutic harp services or in Phoenix where they received a gift of $22,000. for services

Our Bronze Level – a gift of $600 + will purchase 1 harp and a facilitator for 6 months meeting with the people twice a month visits.

Your gift may be designated for one specific facility or for a traveling music-making opportunity for multiple facilities in a designated area where there is a trained facilitator. (Schools, hospitals, community groups, special needs).


ANY GIFTING AMOUNT  can provide materials, harps and trained facilitators, and presentations how a facility can benefit from a partial program.

Community Music-making for children by children.

SondrasGroup Gifting harps has made it possible for people like Sondra Franceil of Georgia to conduct community music-making groups and enable harp player Beautiful Sheriff to go on to a harp career. Read Beautiful’s story here – THE HARP MIRACLE.

Update: Beautiful is busy practicing the Concerto in D Major by Vivaldi, for an March audition to perform at the prestigious Spivey Hall in Morrow GA on April 15. This is part of the Young Performer’s Concerto Debut program, and it will be performed with the Southern Crescent Youth Symphony, Dr. Richard Bell, conductor.

“Harps for Humankind”

 

UPDATE!
Harps for the
Visually Impaired

 

Giving Angels flew in this past year to fund two harps: 1 for the Braille Institute in San Diego where many visually impaired (VI) folk learned to play harp! The other harp is on its way to Dublin, Ireland where we spent time at the St. Joseph’s School for the Blind. Our intent is to create musical penpal journeys between the Youth of Ireland and USA to share the rich culture of Celtic Harping. More VI schools are hoping to be involved and our trained therapeutic harpers from the International Harp Therapy Program are equipped to do the training!
Will your Angel fly in and help support the tradition of harping for the VI as developed in Ireland of days of yore? 1 harp costs $525.+up. Any donation helps to continue our work in schools for the Blind. Thank you!

  • Eliza is finishing her diploma on Community Develoment with focus on refugee resettlement, cross-cultural communication, arts & community development

We would like to get at least 3 more harps to help bring the multiple benefits of learning music which is a Universal Language to these children.

Meanwhile on the home front, we have many grads working in USA facilities. Therefore, as many harps as the Angels provide will be put to great use!
