Since the end of October, $5 from all sales have been going towards these kits for children in palliative care, so that they can enjoy making music with their families and spark a little musical joy in their precious lives.
We at Tiny Tones are thrilled to launch The Lily Calvert Music Therapy Kits in partnership with the Lily Calvert Foundation . The program aims to spark joy from music and encourage families to explore music therapy through donating musical care kits to children who are in a palliative care program all across Australia.
