Sing Me A Story
Sing Me A Story is a neat nonprofit which was co-founded by Austin Atteberry and Sara Doschadis in Nashville, Tennessee ... here's how it works:
* Children in children’s hospitals, orphanages and youth organizations across the country and around the world are given the opportunity to write and illustrate stories about ANYTHING they want.
* Those stories are then uploaded to www.SingMeAStory.org through the collaboration of the partnering organization and The Sing Me A Story Foundation.
* Participating songwriters view the stories, turn them into songs, record them and send them back to the children by uploading them back to the site. By doing so, not only is it on the site, but the partnering organization gets an email with the song attached as an Mp3.
* The program hopes to incorporate any individual and/or group who considers themselves a songwriter, which includes music classes!
