To our incredible POUND Community,
We want to send a huge THANK YOU to you for committing to MOVE FOR MUSIC and support Little Kids Rock with us through the month of November.
Last year, we stumbled upon Little Kids Rock and ran a small Instagram contest as our first POUNDgiving effort. We donated $232 and it was enough to purchase three brand new acoustic guitars and educate about nine additional students. “It’s a small difference, but a difference nonetheless,” we thought.
This year, we set our sights MUCH higher and asked you to get involved in a big way. We asked you to MOVE FOR MUSIC — and you MOVED us. THANK YOU for sharing your stories with us, holding fundraisers in your community, teaching POUND classes for free, and personally reaching out to your family and friends to express how much this cause meant to you and to the POUND community.
Together, we raised over $6,500!! That will add over 260 new seats to music programs in inner city schools and 87 acoustic guitars! That means that 260 kids PER YEAR will now be receiving music lessons where they may otherwise not have had access at all. That’s a huge deal and we are so grateful! We surpassed last year’s donation by 2600%! Now, THAT is how you MAKE NOISE!
Our Crowdrise fundraising page will remain open until next Friday, December 11, 2015 at midnight. If you would like to make one final donation, please go to crowdrise.com/moveformusic.
Thank you, from the bottom of our hearts,
Kirsten and Cristina
