As part of their mission, organic baby clothing company Punypixel™ selects one charity organization every four months and campaigns for their cause through their Kid’s Cause program. From January through end of April 2013, they proudly support Little Kids Rock. With every Punypixel™ purchase, $1 will be donated to help fund music education programs for kids in disadvantaged school districts.
Why is music education important?
Music education is a crucial part of child development; recent research has found that music uses both sides of the brain, making it valuable to all areas of the growing mind. Music affects the growth of a child’s mind intellectually, emotionally and physically. Music education in early childhood has also been shown to lead to success in adult life.
Who are Little Kids Rock?
Little Kids Rock is a national organization that transforms children’s lives by restoring and revitalizing music education in disadvantaged public schools across the United States. Started 11 years ago by an elementary school teacher who sought to address the lack of music education funding, it has grown to become one of the leading free music programs in US public schools. Little Kids Rock currently serves children in more than 800 schools. Thanks to their collaboration with professional music stars, over 38,000 rock n’ roll instruments have been donated to public schools.
Nothing is too little to make a big difference!
- Only one US dollar buys a set of new guitar strings
- Twenty US dollars gives a child an entire year of music lessons
We invite everyone to consider this great cause!
