    • I did not like either person, but calling anyone dumb who voted the other way is dumb. Smarter people than all of us voted for both of these two. Kid Rock if you really feel that way, how about I bet you $100K I beat you in a series of scholastic exams - economics, history, science et et. I guess once I destroy you in all those tests it kind of shows that your Dumbfukstan is actually your hometown. You have my email from sign, please email me to accept my challenge. While not as rich as you, I have the $100K to bet. Put your money where your shirt comments are gtoman
    • I will definitely be contributing, I understand those children. Did you know during wartime when children would have no shelter, they will take the risk of laying as close to the roads as possible, because as any vehicle driving by will give off heat. Yes of course many loose their lives. That honestly angers me. Starving is not any better. So there is just no way I can't because I would be looking into my own eyes and then just turning my back. Shame on me. Shame on all of us. You might not like hearing it, but it doesn't make it less the truth. Then again, what do I know about anything really. I know that I could not just walk by an do nothing. If any of us can go an get our morning cup of coffee, HOW DARE I. just joy Blessings to all. fireytyrant
    • I looked at my Instagram account, this morning. It said that Kid Rock had requested to follow me. I just started following him on Instagram, yesterday. I can't remember being so excited over something, mainly, because, when you aren't a celebrity, people like Kid Rock, are Larger Than Life. He, in my opinion, is a legend. I started looking down through the page, on Instagram. I really don't think it is Kid Rock. There is someone on there, asking peto send money, to "Help The Children". I just don't think Kid Rock is the type of person, to do what this person is doing. I hope someone does look into it. If it is him, that is great. I just want someone to look anissa4499
  • Kid Rock Care Package Update

    The first shipment of our Kid Rock care packages has made its way to the troops. We hear it's been a rough week for them and the packages really lifted everyone's spirits. Thanks to all you fans for making a big difference for our brave soldiers.

    Here are some of America's finest rocking KR gear:

    • Dear KR. If there is any charitable contribution you could make that would move you it would be to come see my very dear friend Karen of 32 years that is at the end of her road. She's asked for very little to experience before her time is up but her top request was to see you in concert. She is one of your biggest fans and so passionate about music.Her battle with cancer started some years ago and returned with a vengance in recent weeks. The amount of oxygen required limits her ability to travel. SHe has had a raw deal in life including losing her brother just recently. Karen is the coolest, most loving, giving and beautiful person I've ever known and I want so much for her to have just one thing to make her feel what life she has left. She has hundreds of people that care for her that would support whatever we need to do to get you here. providing a very decent local venue might be an option in the Atkinson, NH area. time is of the essence. Please come. Kim 603-362-2019 flapsup
    • Just now saw these pictures. Thank you for all the donations from you and your fans Mr. Rock. I didn't censor your shirt on purpose, blame The Man for making us watch our language. I saw you on my first tour, and getting these shirts were almost as awesome as seeing you live! Thanks again, and much love <3 deezy970
    • My daughter Kaitlyn 24 years old was diagnosed with stage 4 breast cancer in April.. She just completed her 6th chemo Tx.. Even with this devastating news Kaitlyn continues to fight strong, so positive an amazing young woman... Our family and friends will be attending your concert on August 30th at the Shoreline Theatre.. It would be so awesome if Kid Rock would somehow acknowledge Kaitlyn and her brother Dean who has been by her side through every appointment and has given up a job he has been applying for and was chosen out of 1200 applicants.. Because he would be a distance away from his sister he opted to stay where he is until she is cancer free... Kaitlyn will have to have chemo txmts every three weeks for the rest of her life... I would so appreciate it if you could join in on our fight to help us Kick Cancers Ass!!!!!! And gshanna
  • KID ROCK FOUNDATION - 2013 RECAP

    Here is just one of the great things the Kid Rock Foundation supported in 2013:

    Kid Rock fans donate Care Packages for the Troops – Over $28,000 raised by fans

  • We've Reached Our Goal... And More!

    Kid Rock fans are BADASS. We are blown away by your generosity. Together we raised over $28,000!!! for our Care Packages for the Troops campaign which will send well over 500 packages overseas. We're so thrilled to spread this joy and show how much Kid Rock fans CARE.

    We'll keep you posted on the packages so you can see the difference your hard-earned money is making.

    You can also take a moment to read all of the messages from our donors here.

    • Kid Rock, First thank you for all you do for our Troops. I am involved with USA cares, Georgia and we are having our First Annual Fundraiser "Shine for the Troops" on May 2nd. I am getting raffles items and silent auction items for the event and was wondering if you would be willing to donate two tickets to your concert here at Lakewood (which I am attending and looking forward to myself) in July for our event. I don't know if you will see this comment but figured it couldn't hurt. You can check out our organization at USACares.org. Thanks ! Cathy chickisgirl
    • Kid Rock I am not expecting you to read this but all I can do is hope for my sisters boys sake. She was absolutely your biggest fan. She would fight her husband to keep your poster up so she could look at you everyday, she absolutely loved you. You are the only person i could ever think to ask this of. Since my sister Lacie Velvet Meyns passing on (August 24th) my older sister has made a trust fund for her two boys to go to college one day. I was hoping you could consider even donating the smallest amount to our fund for them. I know it would make us all including my beloved sissy ecstatic. It would mean the world to all of us, especially my mother and I who also absolutely loves you, as we want to provide a better life for her two beautiful boys. I would like to thank you as well for your amazing help with the troops and other charities. I would love to tell you more if you could possibly consider emailing me @ SunshineLollipopsNdRainbows@gmail.com Thank you deeply if read this. sunshinelollipopsndrainbows
    • I would also like to thank you for your amazing songs that help me to remember her during this hard time. Worlds cannot describe how I appreciate your music always and especially now. It has a special place in my heart. Thank you so much. Much love. sunshinelollipopsndrainbows
