Cool Mandolins for Kids

The Cool Mandolin CompanyBrance posted a few weeks ago about The Cool Mandolin Company, founded to promote our favorite eight-stringed instrument – particularly to young people – and the CD they produced to raise money for their work.

They have now announced a new program, the Cool Mandolins for Kids Program, which they jokingly describe as "The new cure for Mandolin Acquisition Syndrome." The idea is to seek unused mandolins that are gathering dust, and get them into the hands of eager young pickers.

Do you have a gently-used mandolin at home that would make a child really happy? If so, we’d love for you to send it to us. We’ll find a young picker that’s in need of one and send it directly to them. It won’t cost anyone a cent. We won’t take any fees and we’ll pay the shipping fee to the recipient.

We LOVE the mandolin and we want to help promote it to the next generation of "mandolin legends.” Won’t you help us?

If you have a mandolin to donate, or would like more information about the Cool Mandolins for Kids Program, you can contact Laura Leder by email, or by phone at 215-630-8047.
