Your gift is rockin’ overtime on June 16th – 150%

Dear Rockin’ Supporters,

http://littlekidsrock.org/therain.html

These are our kids at a school that had NO music program whatsoever. It's an original song by the kid who is rapping. He was a gang member and well on the road to dropping out of school to a life on the streets. NOW...he is at school every single day. Why?

Music – it has transformed his life.

Thanks to your help Little Kids Rock is now reaching over 54,000 underprivileged students nationwide with free musical instruments and lessons.

We love this work, and we are so grateful to you for helping to make it happen.

Our challenge is to raise $914,000 to reach 75,000 kids by year’s end – only $12.19 per student, so please support changing a kid’s life – or a group of kids.

Wednesday June 16th is a special day to ring out the school year and make your donation increase its impact. Global Giving is making a 50% match of any gift you give by visiting our link http://www.globalgiving.org/projects/music-education/

Please take advantage of this special opportunity to leverage your gift and help put music back where it belongs -- in our schools!

Keep on Rockin’,

Little Kids Rock
