As part of its holiday charity events, Play It Forward Musical Foundation in partnership with the local organization “LJW Gives” donates acoustic guitars to teens in foster care. Being in ages 12-18, this group often gets overlooked during the Christmas season, while music and musical therapy can be life-changing experiences for them. Moreover, some of those teens don’t have much to call their own, so a potential to own the guitar also gives them sense of pride and ownership.
Within the charity program, each teen will receive a brand new beginner’s acoustic guitar, with a case, tuner and extra picks. 25 guitars are planned to be donated.
