Music Without Barriers - a non-profit organization dedicated to giving everyone the ability to create the music they want to create, regardless of their individual physical, cognitive or other life barriers.

To give you an idea how this works, meet Joey:

When Joey was 5, all he wanted to do was to rap, sing and make music.  However, he has cerebral palsy, which in his case, makes it impossible for him to create his own music.

Or so everyone thought.

With the help of some amazing technology, a professional musician, and the support of his teachers and family, he overcame the barriers of cerebral palsy and has now launched his first single on iTunes!  Joey is amazing, and an inspiration for many around him.

But what if someone doesn't have access to this kind of a community?  What if your family can't afford the technology to help a loved brother, mother, son or daughter communicate?  What if your area simply doesn't offer programming designed to help diffrenetly-abled persons shine? How on Earth are you going to connect to a professional musician or Music Studio!?

Enter Music Without Barriers:  a community of Experts, Innovators, Researchers, and Professional Musicians that connect, collaborate, and create music in order to give everyone the chance to shine.  There are no fees and no strings attached - our simple mission is to work with each Artist and with the support of our Community show the world what is possible.

Over a year ago we set out to see what we could do with no money, minimal reseources, and pure volunteer blood, sweat, and tears.  We have since written several songs, colloaborated with one of the biggest schools and medical rehabilitation and research centers in Canada, created an album, created a record label, become a registered non-profit organization and continued building an exiciting network of collaborators.

So what is this fundraser for?  Music Without Barriers is now working hard to make this community a funded organization with programming to help everyone access music. It's time to see what we can do with a years' worth of funding. If our campaign is successful, we will build a studio, hire staff to help drive our vision, and get to work on making more stories like Joey's possible. We want Music Without Barriers to be a community that lasts a long time, and with your support, we will endeavour to do just that. We envision a future where we have studios all over the world, dedicated to giving everyone the chance to express themselves in music, no matter the barriers.

Help us continue the next step of our journey and join us in realizing the dream where everyone has a chance to be a star.
