The #FarmON™ Benefit Concert will be headlined by Grammy-nominated and ACM Award-winning country artist Lee Brice. Brice will be followed by a slate of top country performers in a free virtual concert.
The concert is Farm Journal’s way of saying thank you to everyone in agriculture for keeping our nation’s food supply moving forward. Donations from the concert will benefit the National 4-H Council’s FOURWARD Fund. Bottom line, the #FarmON movement is fueled by the engagement of farmers and ranchers across the nation supporting agriculture and each other.
Kids need your help and –
now more than ever – they need 4-H.
As families and communities across the country face new challenges due to COVID-19, the isolation, stress and uncertainty of the national pandemic are hitting our kids especially hard.
The 55 million kids who had their school year interrupted by COVID-19 are now navigating an unfamiliar summer. As social distancing and other precautions continue, many of the typical summer activities – including 4-H camps and county and state fairs – are on hold. And for kids in rural communities who don’t have reliable internet at home, it’s especially difficult to access virtual learning and other resources designed to keep them engaged and connected. We know that these kids are most at risk of falling behind from the sheer magnitude of COVID-19-related learning loss.
In fact, 70% of teens are worried about the long-term consequences that the pandemic-related trauma will have on their generation and are struggling with mental health, as revealed in a recent survey conducted by the National 4-H Council.
The next generation of hardworking farmers, ranchers and leaders need us right now—help 4-H provide the opportunities our kids need to thrive, no matter their circumstances.
Join Farm Journal for the #FarmON Benefit Concert to support 4-H’s FOURWARD Fund.
4-H currently serves nearly six million youth across the country and, through the FOURWARD Fund, is committed to ensuring all kids have access to the necessary resources, social emotional support and a sense of belonging and meaningful learning opportunities as the crisis continues.
