Your Kindness Out-Pours Unto Your Fans.. and We Hear You : )
I, just like so many of us, have been following Kid Rock, TBT and their music since 1999. In fact, 12 years ago this month, my husband and I attended our first ever show in Philly. Since then, we sorta rolled where the wind took us which has been a ton of different States in dozens of different venues, and a couple boat rides to 'Roll wit the Rock' & 'Chill the Most' - it's been quite an amazing road that I'd never thought we'd be traveling.
Along the way, we met so many friends with warm hearts, and open arms who seemed to want the exact sorta thing that we were looking for... which is : Fellowship amongst friendly and familiar faces that share the same common interest. And yet, after all this time gone by, it still continues on today, given the fact that there are so many of us out there in the community. We are still meeting new friendly faces, partying down with one another with one thing in mind - We Love This Band !!!!
Bob, I hope you know how good to each other we are : ) These are people 'fans' that will invite you into their home, send birthday n Christmas cards, send care packages, invite you over for dinner, carpool to the shows together, set up tailgates, do pre n post parties, share hotel rooms, encourage 'get togethers outside the 'going to' shows, buy tickets for each other - the list goes on and on just like the friendships that we made thru supporting you and the band.
Being Good to Each Other Brings on the Smiles & Good Times !!
PAYING IT FORWARD...... WHAT CAN WE DO TO HELP ???
Being blessed with such friends and opportunities, I wanted to give back to 'The Kid Rock Foundation', in some way or another. Kid Rock's spirt of human kindness has also effected my motivation in this, as sometimes we see people acting kindly which can start a phenomena of Good Deed amongst everyone. So, with the help of some friends, I have compiled a few links for folks like you and I, who may want to 'Give Back' in some small way.
PLEASE, feel free to add more ways or ideas that will help 'Give Back'
OPERATION: KID ROCK FANS UNITE - LET'S... 'GIVE A LIL BIT MORE THEN YOU GOT TO GIVE' !!
1) OPERATION HOMEFRONT - HELP OUR WOUNDED WARRIORS IN NEED !!
Text "SALUTE" to 90999 to give a $5.00 donation. Their Mission is to provide emergency financial and other assistance to the families of our service members and wounded warriors.
This didn't work for me because I have one of those 'pay as you go' cell phones as I keep some things cheap to save for things that mean more to me. But, if you happen to not have a cell phone, or have one like I have; and you would like to donate, copy and paste the link below to the official site. This also explains their mission in more detail, gives current needs, and explains how you can volunteer, or support your local chapter.
2) SUPPORT THE Karmanos Cancer Institute BY BUYING A 'MADE IN DETROIT' 'ROSIE THE RIVETER - WE CAN DO IT' T-SHIRT
3) SUPPORT THE 'KID ROCK SCHOLARSHIP' FOR WAYNE STATE UNIVERSITY.
A scholarship will be awarded annually to an individual from the Metro Detroit area enrolled in WSU's Music Department. You can help by going to the 'Made in Detroit' site and buying WSU Scholarship t-shirt.
4) SPREAD THE LOVE AND SUPPORT KID ROCK AND TBT
Go to http://www.peopleschoice.com/pca/nominations/ and vote for Kid Rock to be nominated. The voting will soon be over, but hopefully we will see his name come up in the nominations, and then we can vote for him to win an award at the People's Choice Awards.
