“At the start of the pandemic, my co-founder and I realized that it was the opportunity to really start expanding this mission to help kids with serious illnesses have the power and choice through a creative process that they so often don't get to have in their daily lives,” shares Dan Rubins. Dan is the co-founder and executive director of Hear Your Song, a non-profit organization empowering kids with serious health conditions to make their voices heard through collaborative songwriting. Today, Dan joins host Tiffany Zehara to talk about how the organization got started and how it works to empower kids globally.
Kids with severe illnesses and diseases lose a lot of agency over their own lives. They may spend a lot of time inpatient in hospitals and don’t have as much opportunity to express themselves creatively as other kids. Hear Your Song gives kids an opportunity to be involved in every step of the song creation process from lyrics and vocals to beats and instruments. It also provides an online community so that kids and their families can feel more connected.
Music can be incredibly healing, but the creation of music itself also provides an opportunity for empowerment. Tune into today’s episode of Humanitarian Entrepreneur Podcast for a talk with special guest Dan Rubins to learn more about the work Hear Your Song is doing to improve the lives of children with serious and chronic illnesses.
