Sing Me a Story is a 501(c)3 that gives children in need the opportunity to write/illustrate stories about anything they want. We distribute those stories to songwriters who turn them into songs for the kids and their families. We provide this programming completely free to our partner organizations. You can see how it all works in this piece USA Today did on us with Michael Franti. (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iS_p8yxccEs&feature=youtu.be)

As a volunteer for the Sing Me A Story Foundation, you will help children and families write stories & then submit those stories to our website. The story-writing session will last a maximum of 1.5 hours. Those stories are then transformed into personalized songs by touring bands and artists!

It's easy, a lot of fun, and, most of all, has a positive impact on the kids and families.

Thank you so much for your time,
Autumn Dobbeck

Mission Statement

Our mission is to serve families in need through the imaginative stories of their children and the power of music. With the help of songwriters, we create music inspired by the creative stories of children. These songs and stories remind us all of how much we have in common, raise awareness and financial aid for nonprofits around the world and, most of all, provide families with an unforgettable experience that brings joy and healing.

Description

The premise behind our program is that we give kids in need around the world the chance to write and illustrate stories about anything they want. We then distribute those stories to songwriters who turn them into songs, record them, and send them back to the kids and families via our program.

Sing Me a Story is a 501(c)3 and no cost to our partner organizations. We work with 5000+ songwriters and have partnered with over 200 organizations serving kids in need around the world. We have been featured by USA Today, The Today Show, People Magazine, and an ever-growing number of other local media outlets.
