Approximately 20% of the military-service members who have returned from combat in Iraq and Afghanistan report symptoms of posttraumatic-stress disorder (PTSD) or major depression, according to data compiled by RAND Corporation. Resounding Joy integrates music therapy into rehabilitation services for a host of populations, including active-military members, homeless individuals, and people with disabilities.
Music therapy can combat the effects of PTSD by helping those who suffer from the disorder to process trauma and develop coping strategies. Through its military program, Resounding Joy employs slim Hapi drums to serve as creative outlets for emotional expression. Hapi drummers can tap on different areas of the drum to produce calming musical notes in one of six scales. Resounding Joy would like to purchase five Hapi drums for its military program, but requires additional donations in order to do so.
Join G-Team and donate $10 to help provide music therapy for members of the military afflicted with PTSD. If G-Team members raise $350, then Resounding Joy can purchase one slim Hapi drum for its military program, including a pair of mallets, an instruction booklet, and a padded case. Each additional $10 raised will go toward funding another Hapi drum.
