Will's charity: Cancer for College
Cancer for College provides financial aid to cancer survivors in the form of college scholarships.
Cancer for College was founded in 1994 by Craig Pollard, a two-time cancer survivor. Craig fought back from Hodgkin's disease when he was just 15. He won his second battle at age 19, after a bone marrow transplant at the City of Hope Medical Center.
"Knowing that I would ultimately return to college after my bone marrow transplant gave me the strength to keep fighting. It gave me a reason to live," said Pollard. To help provide others with this inspiration, he created Cancer for College. Since 1993, Cancer for College has awarded over $1.75 Million in college scholarships to more than 1,000 cancer survivors from around the country.
Chad's charity: Little Kids Rock
We won’t rest until every student has the opportunity to unlock his or her inner music-maker. That is Little Kids Rock’s mission, and over the past 12 years, we have given more than 300,000 under-served schoolchildren across the U.S. access to fun, engaging, Modern Band music classes and brand new instruments at no cost to the students, teachers, or school districts.
Little Kids Rock trains public school teachers and donates all of the instruments, curricular resources and support they need to ensure that their kids receive the right to rock! What makes Little Kids Rock different is that they do more than just donate instruments like guitars, drums and keyboards; they build lasting music programs that focus on teaching kids to perform, improvise and compose the popular music genres that they already know and love, like rock, pop, blues, hip-hop, country, reggae and R&B.
