My husband and I have been 57 days, today, in the NICU with our beautiful boy who decided to join our family 75 days early… if it wasn’t for the unconditional kindness and support of those who tirelessly work their hearts out to make families like ours feel connected to our children, especially during the holidays… all of this would be so much more difficult.
75 days early
I teach 3rd, 4th and 5th graders how to play the ukulele. I have seen the joy the ukulele brings to a child. What a wonderful gift to give a child who is in need of joy. Thank you so very much for this program.
3rd, 4th and 5th graders
Thank you!!! My daughter loves her new ukulele – she plays many instruments and has always wanted a ukulele. A few minutes after Kirsten (music therapist at Univ of Iowa Children’s Hospital) gave her this, Santa came to visit and Bridgette serenaded Santa!! Thanks for bringing a smile to her face today. She needed it!
My son was hospitalized at UC Davis in California for Pancreatitis and was gifted a ukulele. I would like to send a great big thank you for helping make the stay a good experience. Thank you very much!
I just want to thank the UKC Club. The ukulele has helped me so much already. I will use it when I am sad or happy or mad. It will help me so much when I am feeling down. I want to become a music therapist when I graduate.
Thank you for the ukulele. I will cherish it forever.

Thank you Ukulele Kids Club Inc. and “Jenn the music lady” for giving this special gift to Olivia! And, just as we were on our way home from a short hospital stay – what timing!
You guys are absolutely wonderful in the work that you do for these children. My granddaughter was a recipient of one of your ukuleles during her lengthy stay in the hospital and it was worth more to her than words can express. You were the bright spot in her very trying and hard day’s. I just wanna say thank you.
Hello. I just wanted to reach out and tell you how touched I am. My daughter was hospitalized and diagnosed with diabetes. She was scared and emotional. We went to a music therapy class and she LOVED it. They talked about feelings through music. This was an awesome class. After the class, Holly brought my daughter a Ukulele. It made my daughter so very happy she practices all the time.
Your organization rocks!!!!! Thank you so much ☺
My granddaughter got a ukulele and it made her “over a month stay” at the hospital absolutely wonderful, she still plays it to this day! This program is a blessing and it works wonders to help the children get through what they need to and still smile. Thank you for everything you do.
Emma still loves to play hers over a year later. She was gifted the ukulele in the hospital by her awesome music therapist… it made a major difference in her life at that time. Nothing better than music therapy:) all made possible by Ukulele Kids Club Inc. What a generous and thoughtful program for sick children worldwide!
Thank you Ukulele Kids Club for the ukulele (courtesy of Matt at Oakland Children’s Hospital). My 7 year old daughter is fighting stage 3 Rhabdomyosarcoma and while in Boston getting radiation therapy she got a chance to take ukulele lessons. When returning to California she told her music therapist all about it and how she didn’t have one at home and he came back to her room with this. She loves to play.
My beautiful daughter, I cant tell you how much she enjoys making music, we have since gotten a piano. This pic taken is from the hardest time of our lives… and I truly believe in the power of music healing, and appreciate the opportunity and light music brought to her in such a dark time.
My Beautiful Daughter
