Proud of East Texas: Chinn Guitar Project

By Joan Hallmark joanhallmark@kltv.com

Tara Chinn is the inspiration for "the Chinn Guitar Project," which has given away hundreds of guitars to hospitals, schools and individuals.

The project began when Tara was a patient at Children's Medical Center in Dallas, and her dad, Ken, found out the center had four music therapists, but no guitars. He gifted the center with eleven guitars and since then, has given away hundreds of guitars to hospitals, schools and needy children who dream of playing guitar but don't have means to buy them.

The Chinns plan to expand their project nationwide.
