Ear Candy Charity Raises Money to Give The Gift of Music to Children on RaiseItNow.com

RaiseItNow.com (http://www.raiseitnow.com) proudly announced they have partnered up with Ear Candy Charity (www.earcandycharity.org (http://www.earcandycharity.org)) to be their “Fundraiser of the Month” for December 2009. RaiseItNow.com is excited to help this distinguished 501 (C)(3) non-profit organization exceed their goal of $10,000.

Nate Anderson, Founder and President of Ear Candy Charity stated, “Out of 50 states, Arizona is currently dead last in educational funding. Historically, Arts programs are the first to get cut when times are tough.”

Ear Candy’s mission is to provide every child access to music education in Arizona and through out the Southwestern United States. They have already created after school music programs with community partners such as Boys & Girls Clubs of Metro Phoenix. They have supported many in-school music programs by providing instruments to areas in need. For example, Washington Elementary School District, recently received over 40 instruments to 13 different schools which provided hundreds of kids access to music education.

Ear Candy believes the deep divide between the need for music education and the state’s ability to fund it will not be bridged without help from contributors. Ear Candy accepts new and old musical instruments and cash donations to help implement their programs. Ear Candy believes, “kids with a strong foundation of music education will have heightened academic performance, increased self esteem, and a cultural perspective to make an impact both locally and globally”. Just in the last year, Ear Candy has made an impact on thousands of kids in Arizona with their music programs.

Ear Candy explained with just $100 they can equip a child with a guitar and learning materials in one of their after school programs. For every $5,000 Ear Candy raises they can launch a brand new, year long program, and impact up to 100 kids!!!
