I wanted to personally thank every young man and woman who became a KidsRock4Kids volunteer and help us with our fundraising efforts.

There have been over 20 WCHS current and former students who have given not only their time but their own money to help in our cause.

The idea behind KidsRock4Kids was not to simply focus on the issues in Northern Uganda, but instead to provide a platform for teens to prove that their voices do matter and that action is always a better solution than reaction.

While some of our fundraisers have left a few of our members disheartned with the lack of turn out, they have never given up on their goals or the commitment they made to reach a goal.

I would like to invite anyone who reads this to visit our website at www.KidsRock4Kids.com and write a note of encouragement to these outstanding kids. To often we see only the negative side of teens in the media, and while those stories do indeed happen, there are also others like these kids who never get the recognition they deserve.

Thanks for your time and thank you to all of the KidsRock4Kids members, you do indeed "ROCK!"

I was really hoping we would be able to rally more support for this from a site that is dedicated to Washington, IL residents and events.

These kids deserve to know that the public is proud of their efforts to make change and to focus on the future ahead. I would really appreciate anyone who has just 2 free minutes in their day to post a reply here and let these kids know that their hard work does indeed mean something.

Thank you.
