BENEFITING: OPERATION HAPPY NOTE
Then I started thinking. What if we can surprise one or two of these charities with a check…How cool is that?!? Then they’ll join crowdrise and give money and voila…..We vote Edward Norton for president and all is right in the UNIVERSE!!! WHOO –HOO.
I started searching and found this organization.
From the Operation Happy Note Website:
“Operation Happy Note is a volunteer effort to send musical instruments to deployed service men and women throughout the world. Steve and Barb Baker from Fergus Falls, MN run Fergus Music and started Operation Happy Note, after their son was deployed to Iraq. They sent him a guitar and one to his friend, too. These soldiers were so pleased to have instruments while deployed that we found a way to get more instruments to our troops hence: Operation Happy Note."
“Operation Happy Note is doing it's very best to support all our service men and women. At this time they have a few bass guitars, violins, banjos, horns and other instruments in stock waiting to be shipped.”
They don’t have the funding for postage. Imagine that…being just a few stamps shy from making a huge difference in someone else’s life through music and having postage be the show stopper? On average they receive 350 requests a month. Donations are the only means they have to get these instruments into the hands of our deployed service men and women.
They need our help!!!!
Let's Surprise Steve and Barb with a crowdrise welcome check next month and get those instruments off the shelves and into the hands of the people who may need it the most right now.
