We have about one month left in 2017, and so far, we've given more guitars (and drums and banjos!) than ever this year! We've continued supporting our programs in Nantucket, LA, Compton, and Haiti with supplies, plus added banjoes to Folk School JAM in Appalachia!

Special Thanks to our Sponsors:
As you probably know, when Musack donates instruments, our REAL mission is to give kids a voice... or some type of greater meaning with music.
Recently, we wanted to find out right from the kids what these donations really mean to them, and if you've supported Musack for a while, you may know that we frequently reference this photo of Woody Guthrie:
So, we decided to not only re-create it, but to use it as inspiration for the kids we support to tell us what these "machines" we're giving them really mean to them.
The answers we're receiving so far are exactly what we're hoping for. We're seeing that we're, in fact, giving more than just instruments. So, we wanted to share these photos with you so that you know by donating to Musack, you're not just giving instruments, you're giving confidence, a voice, peace, love, and so much more.
We'll be sharing more photos of Musack kids and their responses, so stay tuned on our social medias and feel free to donate if you want to help us give more! In the meantime, here's another photo of Donick re-creating the Woody Guthrie photo... just because.
