The XA Project celebrates its 5 year anniversary today!
In the past 5 years, The XA Project has gifted over 1100+ tickets to over 90+ amazing concerts to pediatric patient families!! And we have brought the joy and beauty of the arts directly to patients at The Children's Inn at NIH and Children’s National Hospital.
Here are some pictures of those inspiring performances at pediatric institutions over the past 5 years.
