Deborah Allen Donates Ukuleles to Children’s Hospital

Country music veteran Deborah Allen helped spread holiday cheer to children in need this year by stopping by Seacrest Studios in the Monroe Carell Jr. Children’s Hospital at Vanderbilt, where she read her children’s book, The Loneliest Christmas Tree. While there, Deborah made a special surprise presentation to the Children’s Music Department by supplying 90 ukuleles for children who are battling illnesses to learn and play, while staying in the hospital, which were sponsored by REMRAF inc., Music and Arts and Davitt and Hanser.

“Christmas is a wonderful time of love and giving. This year I was so excited to stop by Seacrest Studios at Monroe Carell Children’s Hospital at Vanderbilt to visit with the children and read my children’s book, The Loneliest Christmas Tree,” says Allen. “It was an honor to have the opportunity to offer musical inspiration by bringing beautiful ukuleles to children during this joyous season through my relationship with good friend Shane Farmer.”

Allen also participated in the annual Christmas 4 Kids tour bus show at the Hendersonville Walmart where she was joined by other celebrity artists like 3 Doors Down, NSYNC’s Chris Kirkpatrick, T. Graham Brown, Mo Pitney and many others. The event and celebrity shopping party benefits underprivileged families and their children by giving them a special opportunity to see the inside of the star’s tour buses, along with meeting some of the music industry’s top artists before going on an all-expenses paid shopping spree funded by the Christmas 4 Kids charity and sponsor donations.

“Seeing the joy and excitement in the children’s eyes is what Christmas 4 Kids is all about!” said Allen. “It is so rewarding to be able to bring happiness and delight to the children, but the truth is they are as much a blessing to our hearts as we are to theirs. Christmas 4 Kids is a beautiful circle of love.”
