A HUGE thank you to all of the 152 musicians who played at Hope Twinkles 2022.  It was an incredibly full day, and so rewarding to see students from 27 different studios plus parents and teachers play together throughout the 10.5 hours of Hope Twinkles 2022.  Our musicians logged 262.25 playing hours (not counting 20 hours from our 2 fearless leaders who were there from start to beyond finish!)  Donations on-site and online during HT '22 came to $3,001.90, and our steadfast anonymous donor (who has given every year since Hope Twinkles began) put in $1 for every 15 minutes played--that's $1049 for 1049 quarter-hours!  Add more that has come in since the event, and we total


raised for mental health awareness!  If you missed donating, we suggest you go to our Donation page to find out how to send funds directly to the two recipients: Tennessee Suicide Prevention Network, and The Transformation Center.  We are so grateful for each of you, and for the East Tennessee Symphony Orchestra and SoundPoint Strings, who partnered with us to finish the day with a fantastic concert.  Bravo, all!

Many disasters have happened in our world recently, and any one of them would be a great project for Hope Twinkles 2022.  However, there's an unseen epidemic, one that can't be held at bay by masks or temperature checks, and that social distancing only makes so much worse--Mental Distress. 

One of the least visible, yet most painful current disasters is the epidemic of mental health issues facing our population, and in particular, our youth. 

Governments and insurance companies will step in to rebuild homes and businesses after natural disasters. Feeding starving children in Africa or mopping up flood waters in Florida are popular (and necessary) charities. But who meets the needs of emotional anguish?  How do we rebuild from the hopelessness, loneliness and emptiness of mental distress? 

The uncounted toll from years of pandemic shut-down, from heightened reliance on artificial communities through Zoom and social media, from fear and uncertainty, is a growing frequency of young minds and hearts hurting in desperate, and unseen ways until the pain is too great to bear.  We want to reach, touch, and strengthen the faint of heart.  That's why
