Guitar Wish, Granted!

In May of 2023, Free Guitars 4 Kids partnered with multi-grammy winning artist, Amy Grant, to give away two guitars in Minneapolis, MN during her concert. One year later, the young man who received the guitar is now out performing on the streets of Minneapolis! What an amazing testimony to the power of generosity, music and the impact a gift can make on a child’s life.
