If I learned anything from junior high (other than how to survive the ridicule that accompanies pubescence), it’s that nothing says love like a mixtape (or Casey Kasem). So, in addition to the eighteen videos that have now been submitted by people from three continents, I’d like to bring the children an additional gift – a CD of songs dedicated to them by our friends, donors and supporters that share a little bit about who you are and your personal messages for the kids.
To participate, all you need to do is post a comment below with your name, the name of the song you’d like to dedicate and why you’ve chosen that particular tune. If you’d prefer, make your own muxtape, and leave your dedication and a link below.
If you need some musical inspiration, here’s a few songs that I’ve posted to Twitter and the blog throughout the last few months that somehow serve to commemorate the journey:
In retrospect, I may need to move farther afield from the genre of cheese. Here too are a few songs that the children have shared with us:
PS: If you’d still like to submit your video for our Stories Matter project, we’ve extended the deadline through Monday, 6/16/08. For more info, check here.
