It’s Fall, the season after our International Children's Music Network Conference, and the time when we ask a respected member of our community to share what CMN means to him or her and appeal to you for a year-end donation. This year our donation letter author, Bruce O’Brien, told us that he tries “to go to the Conference every year because CMN is like family to me, and a Conference is a family reunion! When I return home from a Conference, I always have a great feeling of optimism and hope for the state of our world and the strength and resilience of all of our families, our human family.”
CMN is about more than kids’ songs. It is also about celebrating each other and embracing the hope that transcends our difficulties and differences. Please support the Children’s Music Network to continue this work. We sincerely appreciate your taking time as 2019 winds down to support us in any amount. You can make donations online or send a check to CMN/ 10 Court St #22 / Arlington, MA. 02476. CMN is a 501c3 organization and your contributions are fully deductible.
Thank you for your generosity,
Your Fundraising Project Members

I was thinking recently how much the CMN community has enriched my teaching. How about you? Have you sung "There's A Dog In School," had a "Snowball Freeze Fight" or spread the love with "Love Grows One By One"? These, and many more, are all authored by CMN'ers, and shared through our community. If you haven't donated to CMN recently and have ANY amount to spare, click on the "donate" button and give a gift to CMN. I did. It felt good.
