Give Them Music!

We have been talking about something for a while now and we have decided to act on it! We have noticed as we visit orphanages that quite a few of the children we see love music and seem to find it very calming. Well, some find it calming, and some can't stop dancing! Either way, it is loved by many of the children we see.

Music is good for children on so many levels! It provides multi-sensory stimulation and encourages movement and rhythm. It is something that even children who don't speak can enjoy and receive sensory input from. Music is such a fun way to connect with kids, cross language barriers, and help kids develop new skills!

So we would like to take them music that we can leave there for them. We weren't sure exactly how to implement this plan but then one of the people going on our advocacy camp mentioned that her daughter has a little music player that you can load MP3 files onto and it sounded perfect! Easy to take, easy to leave, easy to use!

If you would like to partner with us to take music to the orphanages we will be visiting, we have added several of these music players to our Amazon wish list. You can find it HERE.

Thank you so much for your support!
