Have you been knocking about the idea of getting your kids music lessons but can’t justify the expense?
My friend, I have an offer that will have you doing a happy dance.
Not only can you earn a free instrument, you get to help improve the life of a foster kid.
Who is incredible enough to offer you this amazing chance?
Care2Rock. Let me tell you about this mind-blowing program.
This post is sponsored by Care2Rock, but the opinions and excitement? They’re entirely my own.
Helping Foster Kids
You probably don’t know this about me, but I have always wanted to foster a child. Or 10. Or 100. If only my income and time could equal what is in my heart.
As a librarian and teacher, I have seen my fair share of children who need a mentor or caregiver to help them believe they are worthy and special. My go-to for this kind of mentoring has always been (drum roll, please) books. Introducing children to a different mindset or lifestyle through literature is hands-down my favorite way to reach them. Helping them find and explore their interests through books, showing them kindness, listening to their wants and needs…
That’s the stuff.
But there are other ways to help youth in need, and Karyn Scott of Care2Rock has come up with a genius way to do that.
I don’t know about your kids, but my boys looooove music. They spend a large part of each day with earbuds in. I mean, they’re teenagers.
Heaven forbid they do their chores without music.
They connect to music on so many levels. Just listening to music reminds them they’re not alone (kind of like books do). It helps them understand that the human experience is pretty much the same everywhere, makes their problems seem surmountable, and gives them the feeling that someone out there Gets It.
Just imagine how good it feels to have an outlet for all those pent-up emotions you deal with every day. That’s what being the musician does for you.
Imagine feeling like you could be the one to reach another person who needs to be reminded she’s not alone.
Enter music lessons
Learning to play an instrument would not only be infinitely cool to my boys, it would give them the creative and emotional outlet from which just about every kid would benefit.
From which your kids would benefit.
Imagine, though, that you’re a foster kid. Your family can’t afford to pay for those lessons. You’re dealing with, perhaps, the biggest loss life can throw at us. You need an outlet. You need to remember you’re special.
Care2Rock is specifically designed for that kid. Because when you sign up for lessons for your kids through Care2Rock, you’re not only getting live online courses with amazing teachers, you’re also supporting a teacher who has agreed to mentor a foster kid through music.
The cool part? The teachers who have signed up with Care2Rock are highly-vetted professionals, like a guitarist who toured with Bruce Springsteen or an American idol finalist.
And while your child gets live browser-to-browser lessons from your own home, the program does its best to match up teachers with foster kids near them so that children in need get a live, in-person mentor.
Can you even?
I can’t tell you how much Care2Rock touches my soul.

Earn a free musical instrument
It gets better, my friends.
Care2rock is running a Sounds of Summer Club that is going to rock your socks off.
Here’s how it works:
Every single package includes a FREE instrument (keyboard or guitar) and FREE teacher matching.
$39/month = 1 lesson per month for 12 months
$69/month = 2 lessons per month for 6 months
$99/month = 3 lessons per month for 3 months
Already have an instrument? Buy 3 lessons and get one lesson free for $96!
Listen, you can’t beat this deal. If your kids aren’t interested in keyboard or guitar, you can contact Care2Rock about other instruments that might be available.
The instrument alone will save you approximately $149. And the price for lessons is super reasonable. And every time you pay for a lesson, you’re paying for a foster kid to get free lessons.
Can I say that enough?
Can I tell you how much this rocks? Because I’m having trouble finding words here.
Stop looking at me like that. It happens sometimes.
Get over to Care2Rock and sign your kids up for lessons. Get your free instrument. Do something seriously worthwhile.
Let’s change some lives.
