LITTLE KIDS ROCK wrote -Have you ever had a moment where you closed your eyes for a moment and just listened to the music, choking back tears, and swallowing the lump in your throat? Music can bring out the most profound feelings in people, and connect you to a deeper sense of self, if even for just a moment. For those who are music makers, that feeling can be exponentially greater, and even vital for children who are growing up in challenging circumstances. Little Kids Rock is celebrating a milestone of unlocking the inner music maker in more than a half million kids. How are we celebrating? By working to unleash the inner music maker in the NEXT half million kids! With a $500,000 matching gift from The Hot Topic Foundation, every donation will be matched dollar for dollar. Please join us by making a donation. Just $25 will give another child a year of free music lessons, and with the matching gift, that child's friend will get the chance to join him/her. Thanks for helping me celebrate our children by bringing more music into the world!
