Who would have thought a group of Kid Rock fans could start and maintain a charity? One who only helps other Kid Rock Fans? Well it happened, on August 29th, 2011, the Kid Rock Life Line was born, all from one post from a fan in need after the flooding from Hurricane Irene. The founder of the organization, Sonia Woolf, reacted by starting a Chip in account and from there the charity grew.
Over the past year the charity has helped or provided comfort for over 30 fans. Recipients have ranged from those that suffered from a natural disaster to those that have had loved ones pass on. The KRLL has been able to donate money, goods, or clothing for those in severe need. For those that just need comfort, the call goes out to members to send cards and the KRLL will send a gift basket.
The KRLL is proud to announce the launching of its own website, www.kidrocklifeline.com. The website will now be our new home. The new website includes:
Disaster Preparedness information
Latest News so you can keep up with where help is needed
Application for Assistance (in case you need help)
A chat room for members
A discussion forum for members
An events calendar to keep up with disaster cycles or fundraising events
Twitter, so important messages will come right to your phone
A merchandise store will be added so that you can purchase KRLL merchandise with 100% of the proceeds going to the charity

Although we haven’t raised a great deal of money, we have come together as a family when it’s been needed and ALL members should be proud of that. The Board of Directors for the coming year are:
Sonia Woolf, Founder
KRLL’s mission is clear. We provide immediate, essential support, comfort, and encouragement to fellow members of the community in the wake of natural disaster and personal tragedy. We will continue to help in whatever ways we can.
