My name is Darcy Lynch and I run a non profit, 501c3 charity called the Hands That Rock. The Hands that Rock's mission is to bring the magic of music to underpriviledged children worldwide. Our network of approximately 1,000 practitioners, provide chair massage at music festivals and special events. Patrons pay a small fee for this service, and a portion of the proceeds are donated to programs concerned with music education, performance, related resources and outreach for individuals and groups in need. Our fundraising efforts additionally address community initiatives associated with such outreach programs and groups to include environmental, social and health-related concerns to help create a suitable environment for the creation and performance of music.
This GoFundMe campaign is to help offset the cost of restoring a Volkswagon Bus to be used as a mobile massage vehicle in which to setup on site at these festivals and events as a place to offer the massages. The restoration of the van has already begun and we are need of additional funds to complete the project.
Any donation is appreciated and you will be giving the gift of music to children everywhere!

Cheap Jordan Shoes,Transjordanian forces were small but well-trained and professional. Abdullah initially assigned them the mission of taking control of all territory that had been allocated lor the Arab state in the partition of Palestine. The British were informed of this plan by General Glubb with British foreign Secretary Bevin responding, “It seems the obvious thing to do ... but do not go and invade the area allocated to the Jews.”, Later, the Jordanians departed from this plan and became involved in heavy fighting in Jerusalem, Air Jordan Shoes, which was projected to have been an international city under the UN resolution. This change in plan led to an increased use of the Arab Legion in exactly the sort of fighting that Glubb had hoped to avoid.ReplyDelete
The Arab Legion commander considered the Jewish militia (Hagana) and strike force (Palmach) to be adept at urban combat in ways that his Bedouin troops were not. Unsurprisingly, both Israeli and Transjordanian casualties were heavy in the subsequent fighting within the city. King Abdullah claims to have refocused his efforts on Jerusalem in response to urgent appeals for rescue from Arabs living there, and thus directed his military away from a variety of more feasible missions. These statements probably do not reflect the full story. Abdullah is also known to have felt a special emotional tie to Jerusalem and may have believed he had a family responsibility to defend the Muslim holy sites from Israeli capture. As the fighting went forward, Retro Jordans, it quickly became apparent that Jerusalem would not be internationalized at the end of the war, and one side or the other would establish control over the area through military action.
