What have and haven't they accomplished so far?

We strive to deliver guitars to new hospitals every month. The more coverage, the more kids that we can supply with their own personalized guitars.

Our presence is building every single month as more hospitals come on board with our "Guitars for Kids program."

We have a developing network around the country to help us with our mission.

Progress is made on a daily basis as more hospitals receive their delivery of guitars.

We started the program in November 2016 and we have developed relationships with hospitals all around the country. We hope to expand on these original hospitals bee adding to them every single year.
