If you turn on the news, it’s become unbearable to see the terrible stories involving kids that tend to get all of the press. Over the past year, though… I’ve been hit with some pretty good ones – positive and inspiring stories about people doing good for the little ones in the world – stories that don’t get as much coverage as they should. You’ve got SINGING OUR WAY THROUGH: SONGS FOR THE WORLD’S BRAVEST KIDS by Alastair Moock & Friends, the work that Brady Rymer does for kids with Autism, and of course, the 10th Annual St. Jude Thanks and Giving campaign – and those are just a few. Today, something popped up on my radar here at Rock Father HQ that I wasn’t familiar with, but had to share immediately: SONGS FOR KIDS. Watch the video below and keep reading…
Founded in 2007, the SONGS FOR KIDS FOUNDATION is a 501(c)(3) organization with a mission of enriching the lives of children suffering from illness or hardship. These folks work year-round to bring music to children’s hospitals and special needs camps through live interactive concerts, hospital bedside performances and their Songs For Kids Records songwriting & recording program.
In 2013, Josh Rifkind and Sanjay Kothari put together the first-ever SONGS FOR KIDS TOUR, performing at 240 Children’s Hospitals in 240 Days in 180 Cities across the country. By Thanksgiving, the duo will have logged over 350 performances over these 240 dates – all of which have come at no cost to the hospitals or families.
Their 2014 SONGS FOR KIDS National Tour will kick-off next May. Learn how you can lend your support at http://www.songsforkidstour.org/
