About Give the gift of music to Hummingbird House

Hummingbird House needs a Music Therapy program.
You can help us raise $22,500 to deliver this essential service!

For most of us, music is an everyday part of our lives. For children and families who need to make every moment count, we know music can mean so much more.

It has been said that when words fail, music speaks. Many children who are supported by Hummingbird House have difficulty communicating verbally and may have other sensory and movement impairments. What better way to give each child a voice and an opportunity to engage with their world and the people around them, than through the use of the creative wonderland music can provide.

We want to harness the power of music to enrich and enhance the special moments that children and families share at Hummingbird House, Queensland’s only children’s hospice. By bringing music therapy to Hummingbird House, children and their families will be able to access the proven benefits of music to help with pain relief, socialisation, communication, and self expression.
Research shows that music therapy programs have significant benefits for children affected by life limiting conditions and we want to incorporate these benefits into the best practice care we provide at Hummingbird House.
Our music therapy program will compliment and contribute to all aspects of care within Hummingbird House, whether a guest and their family are enjoying a short break stay, engaging in family wellbeing support, or are receiving care at the end of life. With your help, music will be an integral part of each child’s experience with us.
Initially, our goal was to raise the $48,000 required to provide this specialist music therapy program to guests, their siblings and their families. We are excited to share that already $7,500 has been donated by generous community groups towards our goal and we have applied for a grant of $18,000. Now we need your help.
Children and their families supported by Hummingbird House deserve the gift of music to help them make every moment count. There is $22,500 left to raise. Please help us meet our goal, and fill Hummingbird House with the sound of music!
