Hello Friends!

In early 2012 I embarked on a round-the-world trip that took me to more than 25 countries and completely changed my life. I had the opportunity to meet people I never thought I would be able to, and see with my own eyes the realities affecting the global sphere. The most pressing cause that I recognized was the striking rise in population in developing countries and the desperate need for education, especially for girls!

According to the Girl Effect, "When a girl in the developing world has 7 years of education, she marries 4 years later and has 2.2 fewer children."

This is such and important catalyst to healing developing countries in the world, in Asia, Africa and Central America. In the Philippines I did music therapy with victims of sexual trafficking, some of the sweetest, most precious girls I have ever met. This could ALL change with more attention to education!

So.... WANNA HELP BUILD A SCHOOL???

On the wings of my just-released music video for "Knock On Wood" (check it out above)... a compliation of photo stills from my journey and featuring some of the kids I met along the way, I am excited to partner with Pencils of Promise to fund the Knock on Wood School Project. PoP is currently on the ground in a host of developing countries building schools in Nicaragua where I have already done volunteer work with kids and clean water initiaves, Laos, Guatemala and Ghana. 100% of donations goes directily to projects on the ground. Let's help get a school done!

HERE IS MY GOAL:

Small- just $2500, but this goes towards building a classroom. And within that $25 gives a child access to education for 1 year, doesn't that feel good? We can do more.

I plan to personally travel to the school in progress to connect with the kids being impacted by our donations and document the progress. PoP is upstarting in Laos, where lack of education is a crisis. Nicaragua is also a country I have volunteered in and have seen with my own eyes the excitement of kids learning and empowering themselves!

(You guys know me by now, I WILL travel there and bring my guitar, too :)

Buy the single, I match it.  Buy "Knock On Wood" and I can track the sales, matching it with a donation.

What better way to get in the holiday spirit than by giving back? And how cool is it to give a donation towards a school for a Christmas Present. 

HERE'S WHAT YOU GET:

Updates on the progress YOU are making when we raise the funds. 

Get "Knock on Wood" in your inbox. Any donation large or small I will send you the track of my favorite song off my record, "Carefree."

And YOU are part of building a SCHOOL!!! How cool is that. 

Your donation is Tax-Deductible.

Hopefully together we can make a dent and help inspire education in places where it is crucial.

Thanks again for your support, and remember: While one person can make a change, only together can we change the world.
