Liam’s Christmas Guitars ™

“Sau-da-de”. “Saudade is a deep emotional state of nostalgic or profound melancholic longing for an absent something or someone that one loves. Moreover, it often carries a repressed knowledge that the object of longing might never return.”

The question is, where does one go with the love that remains?”  

“Music Is Where the Love Remains”.

Liam’s Christmas Guitars ™

Liam’s Christmas Guitars ™ mission is to provide brand new Acoustic Guitars to teenagers who currently reside within Foster Care programs. Too often, these young teens from 12 - 18 are often overlooked during the Christmas gift season. Liam’s Christmas Guitars ™ aims to focus our intentions specifically on these children. Each child, boys and girls will receive a brand new beginners acoustic guitar. 

Supporting teens with music and music therapy is a life changing experience for these children, some of which don’t have much to call their own. Gifting and influencing children with new acoustic guitars also gives them a sense of pride and ownership. Together, with your pledge, we will provide, guitars, straps, picks, strings, cases, and workbooks to make Liam’s Christmas Guitars ™ a huge success by honoring Liam's musical legacy and knowing that...
