We are the Holland sisters, Kylie (14), Devon (13) and Piper (11). We believe kids can make a difference in the world and age doesn’t limit a person’s ability to have ideas, make plans, take action and help others.
As kids born in the Silicon Valley, we are entrepreneurs and activists ☺, and giving back to the world is definitely something our family believes in. We started the Earth Saver’s Club for Kids to help kids save the earth when we were 11, 10 and 8, and we just founded a new record label called Painted Wolf Records. The label's mission is to help young musicians like us use their talents to raise awareness and help support worthy causes around the world.
Our first release, Invitation to Dream, is a cool collection of bedtime ballads and lullabies sung by Devon to benefit US Green Building Council’s Project Haiti. She had a remarkable team supporting her including top vocal coach and producer Peter Maleitzke; Grammy® Award winning recording and mixing engineer, Leslie Ann Jones and her team at Skywalker Sound; concert-level musicians; and the iconic Fantasy Studios in Berkeley, CA. Devon was also fortunate to have award-winning, Elisa Kleven, illustrator and author of over thirty children’s picture books create the original cover art for Invitation to Dream.
We are donating 100% of the profits from the sales of her CD to hopefully raise over $250,000 for the US Green Building Council’s Project Haiti. Watch our video to learn more about it.
Recognized by the Clinton Global Initiative as a Commitment Maker, Project Haiti will be the FIRST-EVER LEED-certified orphanage and children’s center in the world! It will provide a new home for the children and babies left homeless by the terrible 2010 earthquake in Haiti. It will also provide a blueprint for building other healthy, happy, sustainable, affordable orphanages throughout the third world. The money we raise will make sure USGBC can break ground on Project Haiti in 2014. PLEASE help us give these babies and kids in Haiti a new place to live, to play, and to dream listening to Devon’s lullabies.
A minimum contribution of $20 (more is better ☺) will give you a copy of Invitation to Dream to enjoy or share with a little kid or baby in your life. Please buy the CD now at www.invitationtodream.com
. Together we can show these children we LOVE them!
Thank you sooooo much!
