Christmas 4 Kids is a non-profit organization based in middle Tennessee with the intention of providing a holiday celebration for those who may otherwise not have that experience.
It was recently announced that Hunter Hayes, Brett Young, John Berry, Lindsay Ell and Halfway to Hazard will all be performing at the Ryman Auditorium on November 20. Tickets are available now, and all proceeds benefit the Christmas 4 Kids organization.
The organization works selflessly for the cause, "The entire year's efforts come together when the buses pick up over 400 children and bring them to a Christmas Party held in their honor. Santa and Mrs. Claus host the party, which provides lunch (donated by Garth Brooks), live music, dancing and a lot of fun!! After the party, the children get back on the buses for a parade, led by the Nashville Trolley carrying Santa and Mrs. Claus, that stretches nearly five miles and features more than 70 Tour Buses, ending at Super Walmart in Hendersonville. Each child is met by his or her own chaperone, and they're given $150.00 to buy anything they want. Plus, Christmas 4 Kids gives every child a brand new winter coat."

Christmas 4 Kids President Linda O'Connell is excited to celebrate their 35th anniversary, "We are so thankful for all of these great artists who have all volunteered to donate their time and talent to help bring a better Christmas to so many children in need."
For a very affordable donation, fans are able to participate in the Tour Bus Show during which top artists open up their "home away from home" in the name of the cause. In the past, participants have included Chris Young, Trisha Yearwood and Taylor Swift. The fun part? You never know who you might get to meet. The Tour Bus Show will take place on December 11, if you're in the Nashville area it's worth checking out!
