Hey Rockin’ Supporters!

This year was a spectacular success thanks to supporters like you. Thanks to the generous donations that you have made to Little Kids Rock through Global Giving we have been able to reach thousands of new students, by bringing free musical instruments and lessons to children in our public schools.

In 2007, Little Kids Rock opened new chapters in Atlanta, DC, Philadelphia and Trenton, New Jersey. Due to your generosity, thousands of students in these cities will have the gift of music in their lives, a gift that has the real potential to bring about lasting change.

This past year, Little Kids Rock students made appearances on Nickelodeon, MTV, HGTV and a host of other news outlets. They jammed with some of music’s biggest celebrities, opened up sporting events, and even played for city mayors!

If you would like to see video footage of some of the thousands of kids we are reaching across the country, visit www.littlekidsrock.tv. While you are there, explore some of the free video lessons that we post there for our students. Also, be sure to check out Little Kids Rock on iTunes U, Apple’s free educational component to its wildly popular iTunes platform, where Little Kids Rock became the #1 most popular educational program.

At Little Kids Rock, we still have plenty of work ahead of us. In 2008, we plan on bringing our program to many more deserving public school students. Your donations will help us launch new programs for five cities in 2008 (Chicago, Dallas, Houston, Jersey City and Tampa). We need your continued support to meet our ambitious goals of rocking the lives of 20,000 students in the coming year. We need to raise an additional $150,000 before the end of this calendar year to do so and we need your help to get there. A gift of any amount will make a difference!
