Dear Rockin' Supporters
Music has the power to change children's lives. A young girl from Jersey City named Jade knows it. She even wrote a song called "Change" -- a powerful testament to how music has changed her life: http://littlekidsrock.org/change.html
Jade has written several songs, and was chosen from among more than 400 students to be a grand prize winner in Little Kids Rock's 2010 songwriting contest. Another thing about Jade that makes her new found talent so remarkable: she is partially deaf. Before she was involved with Little Kids Rock, Jade rarely spoke up in class – now the entire school turns out to hear her sing and play.
By putting children in touch with their creative sides, music can motivate children to overcome the challenges in their lives. Little Kids Rock’s challenge is that more children than ever before have returned to silent classrooms this year, because budget cuts eliminated music programs from public schools.
Starting on October 12, www.GlobalGiving.org is matching all donations – and as a special incentive for Little Kids Rock to invite all our friends to meet the challenge of restoring and revitalizing music education, GlobalGiving is offering a $1,000 bonus to the project that raises the most funds between Oct 12-21 ... AND another $1,000 bonus to the project that receives donations from the most individual donors.
Please take advantage of this special opportunity to leverage your gift. Visit our project between Oct 12th and 21st – Give 3,000 students access to music education (#1464) – and give as generously as you can, so that more kids can receive the lifelong gift of music through LKR's free instruments and innovative lessons that focus on teaching kids to perform, improvise and compose the music they love. Like Jade says, “It's time to change, Be right and rearrange.”
You have the power to change a child's life, and maybe even to save it.
Keep on Rockin'Little Kids Rock
