Raymond Weil Sponsors Australian Children's Music Foundation

Swiss watchmaker RAYMOND WEIL has announced a new and very special partnership with the Australian Children’s Music Foundation; the ACMF.

Founded in 2002 by renowned children’s entertainer Don Spencer OAM, who had the vision to use the power of music to inspire and enrich the lives of all Australian children and youth particularly the less advantaged and Indigenous, the ACMF is a not-for-profit organisation that provides musical instruments and programs for disadvantaged and Indigenous children and youth in schools, remote communities and Juvenile Justice centres across Australia.

Music is food for the soul and inspires imagination, creativity and brings joy and hope along with other significant social and intellectual benefits. Through music, children and youth can find a way to express their emotions and channel their energies and abilities into something positive and creative. Research has proven that playing a musical instrument has mental health benefits, reduces reoffending, improves engagement with learning, improves literacy and numeracy as well as behaviour and self-esteem.
Music has also been a constant form of inspiration and creativity for RAYMOND WEIL as a brand, and continually aims to share their inspiration and emotions with their consumers and partners. To begin the partnership, RAYMOND WEIL sponsored a special ACMF fundraising event featuring an exclusive performance by Brit-Award winning, Grammy and ARIA nominated, professional saxophonist and ACMF Ambassador Amy Dickson.
