Tuesday was a special day. The kind of day that fills my heart with gratitude for the generosity of the Kidznotes team and family, and reinforces the significance of our mission to change lives through music.
On Giving Tuesday, over 60 individuals stood up to #GiveKidsMusic. If you are one of those individuals, thank you! Thanks to you, we raised over $46,000 in just 24 hours. Thanks to you, at least 18 students will receive a beautiful instrument and 400 hours of rigorous instruction. Thanks to you, their lives will be changed through music, just as mine has been.
Beyond the world of Kidznotes, these meaningful gifts were amplified as we joined an international community of supporters. Over 1.6 million gifts were made to Giving Tuesday campaigns in 98 countries worldwide, totaling over $177 million in gifts. I am truly moved when I think about our important role in this movement, and am reminded of the words of Margaret Mead:
Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world; indeed, it’s the only thing that ever has.
Let’s keep changing the world together.
