You might recall a few weeks back, the Times caught up with Chane Morrow, known to most everybody as Big Piph, about his upcoming fundraiser to help establish the Global Kids program in Arkansas. Piph and a bunch of other folks are seeking to raise $100,000 by April 29.

Along with a variety of events (including an art exhibition and sale Wednesday at White Water Tavern), several artists have contributed songs to the fundraiser. You can download them for $1, with 100 percent of the proceeds going to help underprivileged kids in the area learn and travel with Global Kids.

Rock Candy will be sharing new songs each day. First up: Adam Faucett, with "The Way You See It." Download it here and you can not only enjoy a great tune, but also know that you're helping a good cause. Also, if you'd like to donate more, here's the page where you can do that.

Be sure to check back over the next several days, as we'll be posting more songs. Up tomorrow, a live track from Times Musicians Showcase alums Brown Soul Shoes.

There's a full press release after the jump.

Proceeds go to the Global Gateways Summer Institute of Global Kids Arkansas

LITTLE ROCK—Hip-hop artist Chane “Big Piph” Morrow plans to raise $100,000 in 14 days to bring the four-week Global Gateways Summer Institute to Little Rock. Twelve underprivileged high-school students from the greater Little Rock area will be selected for the program of global learning and youth development. The program works to ensure
the youth have the knowledge, skills, experiences and values they need to succeed in school, participate effectively in the democratic process, and achieve leadership in their communities and on the global stage. Young people examine global issues, make local connections, and create change through peer education, social action, digital media, and service-learning, while receiving intensive support from GK staff. The first two weeks of the program will be held in Little Rock, whereas for the final two weeks the students will be chaperoned out of the country to continue their studies abroad. Upon returning, the students will be further mentored to initiate sustainable programs within their community. The fundraising kicks off April 15 and lasts until April 29th.

During this time, Piph will work with other leaders of the community to hold events such as a 3-on-3 basketball tournament, scavenger hunt, performances, art shows, cocktail parties and more. Additional funds will be raised through corporate sponsorship and crowd funding as we are encouraging the entire community to be part of this movement as well.

“Something about traveling to foreign sands is eye-opening and soul inspiring. When that spark is placed in a progressive, fertile mind; positive change is bound to occur." - Piph

In July 2012, Piph travelled to Gambia in Africa, courtesy of the U.S. Embassy to teach hip-hop culture to students, perform, and create new music with the country’s natives. Although he travelled out of the country several times before, personal relationships he formed with children and artists while serving as a goodwill ambassador for our country caused a paradigm shift, which inspired him to do more to make a direct impact on youth at home
and abroad.

Upon realizing that such a paradigm shift and positive influence on his mindset form the very roots for improving the world, he immediately began working on ways to share such experiences with others. After conversing with a former collegiate friend who was working for The UN, he discovered that Global Kids was just the program he was seeking to bring to Arkansas.
