Guitars Not Guns (GNG) is an international, non-profit organization that has been around for quite some time. Founded by foster parents Ray and Louise Nelson in 1992, the volunteer based program, was recognized by the federal government as an official nonprofit in 2000. Its mission is to provide guitars and lessons to foster kids, at risk youth, and other deserving children in a classroom setting with qualified teachers.
