Your donation will allow Little Kids Rock to bring new instruments & a modern music curriculum to underfunded public schools nationwide!
THANK YOU FRIENDS!!! As of October 23 -- $6018 raised so far! $2850 raised off line, and the rest here!!! I know a few of are also working on some large donations and grants - thank you for that level of support!
I will continue matching your donations up to $7500 to double the number of kids we can serve - and my friend Joe Veni offered to match the next $500 in donations as well, so you can still double your investent today.
More kids than ever before will return to silent classrooms this year due to budget cuts that have eliminated music programs in public schools nationwide. Little Kids Rock is reversing that trend by putting a rockin' music program into hundreds of schools and instruments into more kids' hands.
So far, more than 54,000 kids are rockin' in 24 cities nationwide! Please join us in transforming another 20,000 children's lives by winter break. The donation levels provided here as an example of what your dollars can buy when we launch a new program or expand a program in a school.
But also keep in mind how far your $$ reaches! We are currently bringing music education to a child for an entire school year for in the range of $20-57 (varies by market) - that is far less than the cost of a 1 hour private music lesson!!! Want to know more, or see the kids play? Here's an awesome video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bAOvSLV4_Q8
Thank you, thank you, thank you for your support to help us serve more kids! -- Karen Chakmakian, www.littlekidsrock.org
