Northridge, California (PRWEB) April 05, 2016
The month of April is Autism Awareness Month!
Rising Star Music Fund announced its campaign today to raise funds via a crowdfunding campaign on Go Fund Me. The goal is to raise $15,000 to allow the Rising Star Choirs for Children with Autism to continue to keep going and growing.
So many children are diagnosed with autism and their families face tremendous challenges every day.
Our Rising Star Choir Fund provides this great opportunity at NO COST to the families. We are deeply committed to honoring the amazing strength of people living with autism.
The Rising Star Music Fund has established community choirs for children with autism with the Music Therapy Programs of Belmont University, Nashville, Tennessee and California State University, Northridge, California. .Rising Star Founder and Executive Director Kathleen Hale says "Our commitment is to provide professional music therapy and to offer the opportunity for children who share many of the same characteristics, to spend time together, bond and develop friendships. Equally as important is that we provide a fun and inviting environment for the whole family." This is offered at NO COST in order to make it available to any family in the area that wishes to participate. An additional benefit is that Music Therapy students volunteer to help during the choir sessions and gain tremendous experience in their chosen field.
The Rising Star Music Fund is a 501(c)(3) public charity dedicated to supporting music education, encouraging the study and making of music, and providing opportunities for children with special needs or in under-served communities to access well-balanced, comprehensive, and high-quality programs of music instruction. Rising Star Music Fund was founded by Kathy Hale in 2009.
