The Healing Box Project

What we do:

We give guitars and lessons to disabled Veterans. We give the joy of music through guitar playing. We use music to replace symptoms of PTSD and our motto is "the guitar is the box and healing begins with the first strum."

Why we’re great:

We prevent suicide. The method of teaching allows a beginner to play guitar in just a few minutes. From beginner to advanced levels of performance, The Healing Box provides a hobby and outlet for feelings of trauma to be replaced with music.

Why does your organization deserve community financial support?

Our program serves those who have sacrificed (in life-changing ways) to protect our liberty. We ask the community to help our deserving Veterans, and we are the vessel to give back. Gifted guitars come with a $250 price tag. The results are priceless.
