Blessings raise Lullaby for Columbine benefit CD to new heights.
We wanted to get the word out about all of the wonderful things happening for the Lullaby for Columbine Project in 2000 as we approach the one year anniversary of the Columbine tragedy.  We were founded shortly after the Columbine shooting to provide financial aid and healing to the victims through music.  To learn more about our mission and the wonderful people behind the scenes, please visit the LFC website.  We want to thank David Vande Velde at MoneyTeam Webservices for hosting the LFC News so we can keep you informed on everything happening with our project.

LFC Beams its Message to the Sky!
The Christian Broadcasting Network (CBN) flew out their crew to tape members of our project and victims of the Columbine tragedy recently.   The footage will be used for a news segment to be aired on the week of the 20th across the country.  Its primary focus is to address the spiritual aspects and the positive things that have come from the Columbine tragedy.  Our thanks to Pamela Newby, producer and writer of the story for capturing the vision of our project and spreading the word of our spirit-filled effort!

PAX station, Channel 59 in Denver, is planning on airing our 15 and 30 second spots produced by Beyond Digital over the Columbine anniversary week.  We thank them for this wonderful opportunity to get the word out locally of our benefit CD!

Healing Notes
Many of the Columbine victims have shared with us the wonderful healing our CD has brought them.  Aside from the funds being raised, the music alone is already making a powerful impact on so many of their lives.  The Columbine families are always are in our prayers and we wish them peace and comfort during the upcoming anniversary which we know will be a challenging time for them.

As we are entering an exciting phase with our wonderful project, we thank
you for your undying support.  Stay tuned, as we'll keep you posted on
upcoming events, the progress of our CD and the positive impact it is having on the Columbine community.  God bless!
