"Thank you for giving me the "oppor-tune-ity" to play the guitar and, of course, I took it! (the opportunity, not the guitar)"
– Rachel (5th grade, New York City)
Because of your support, Little Kids Rock has forever enriched the lives of more than 200,000 needy school children over the past ten years by providing them with free instruments and music lessons.
But our work has just begun! (DONATE TODAY at www.littlekidsrock.org)
You have the opportunity to DOUBLE YOUR IMPACT! Bohemian Foundation has offered up a challenge grant, and will match your donations up to $50,000 for the next six weeks. This means that your $1,000 gift, which puts 20 guitars into a classroom, will now enable Little Kids Rock to donate 40 guitars!
"I always played Guitar Hero... Now I am one!"
– Ryan (4th grade, Dallas)
We all know music has a powerful impact on a child’s emotional and educational development. Unfortunately, the children from impoverished communities across America who need it the most are being deprived of music’s many gifts due to school budget cuts.
Please give the gift of music this holiday season so that our children have the “oppor-tune-ity” to experience the sensation of an instrument in their hands, to add some sound to their silent schools, and to feel like they are a real Guitar Hero.
"Before Little Kids Rock came into our school, it was silent. Now we ROCK OUT!"
– Levi (5th grade, Jersey City)
For every child you support, we’ll support another.
Your Friends in music,
Little Kids Rock
