"Running Through The Fields"

Mission Statement

Lyrics For Life is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization whose mission is to make a difference in the fight against pediatric Cancer. It was founded by Sister Hazel front man Ken Block in memory of his younger brother Jeffrey, who ultimately lost his four-year battle with Cancer.

The charity unites musicians and celebrities for concert events, auctions and other fundraising efforts. The monies raised are donated to groups that are working to find a cure, as well as those aiming to enrich the lives of patients and their families. From research to summer camps and family support groups, we are surrounding this disease and conquering it from every angle.

Artists participate in many ways, most often by donating handwritten lyrics to one of their songs on anything from a simple sheet of paper, to a surfboard to any kind of unique item. We then frame or mount it beautifully and offer it for sale in one of our Lyrics For Life auctions.

Our team of musicians, volunteers, sponsors and supporters are proud to set our goals for the future high. We accept the challenge of finding new ways to raise money, awareness and sensitivity, to help make each day a little brighter until there is a cure.

Many of us have lived through it... a loved one, a friend, a co-worker... We've all been affected by someone who has dealt with the disease. Our desire to help comes from a real place, from real loss.This gives us the energy and ambition to fight back! We are fighting back! It's a personal mission of ours to foster and create events that are fun, cool, exciting, and ultimately events that help.

Together we can make a difference. To find out more about what you can do to help, please visit the HOW TO HELP section of our site.

Lyrics For Life Day

For several years, we've had a dream at Lyrics For Life to organize a single day event where folks from all over the country would gather in unique ways to raise money and awareness for childhood cancer.

In recognition that September is Childhood Cancer Awareness Month, we are challenging you set one day aside to help spread the word and make a difference in our fight against Pediatric Cancer. We are also hoping that you will have some fun in the process. Our idea is simple - gather with your friends, family, community and local businesses to do something that raises awareness and funds.

It can be anything; the possibilities are only limited by your imagination. It's not too late to help make a difference, so start thinking and send us YOUR ideas. While no idea is too small (every donation truly does count), we are thinking big - our goal is to have events happening in ALL 50 STATES on Lyrics For Life Day! If we band together just for one day, imagine the difference we can make as a whole.For more information or to discuss your idea, please contact us at info@lyricsforlife.org.
