Have you ever wanted to get your hands on a cowboy hat signed by George Strait? How about a guitar signed by Eric Church, Jason Aldean, or Dierks Bentley? What if you could get one or more of those items and have the money go to a good cause? The charity organization Musicians on Call is making that possible.
What is Musicians on Call
Musicians on Call is a charity organization that brings music into hospitals. Before 2020, they offered both live bedside performances as well as virtual performances. Because of current restrictions many other organizations that fill the same role are unable to operate. However, since Musicians on Call offers virtual performances they are still able to bring music into hospitals.
The charity brings music to patients as well as caregivers. They bring their services to children’s hospitals, VA hospitals, and adult facilities. Currently, their focus is on those who are most in need of a bright spot in their day. This includes those with visitor restrictions, elderly and at-risk patients, and frontline healthcare workers.
Since the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic, they have served over 75,000 people.
George Strait and Others Pitch in for the Auction
The auction organized by Musicians on Call will help the charity to continue to brighten the days of people in need of the hope and solace that music brings. It features some items that are hard to find. In fact, it might be a once in a lifetime chance to pick up some of these items without collectors’ markups.
Strait, Church, and some of the other artists involved in the auction took to Twitter to announce their involvement earlier today.
