HUDSON JEANS Kidstock Music & Art Festival: Hollywood Lends a Helping Hand (Ziggy Marley, Stephanie Scott, Angie Harmon & More! )

Hey Loves,

I had an amazing time this past sunday at the HUDSON Jeans Kidstock festival. As the west coast affiliate for, my denim voyaging has led me to events by brands that are fashionable but also passionate about making a difference. The One Voice Scholarship program is very dear to my heart. This year I have been teaching engineering to high school students and one of my own students is a beneficiary of these efforts as a One voice scholar! I had an amazing time chatting up HUDSON jeans staff. There is an awesome new range of denim out for children. However, the uber cool t-shirts seen below were only available to KIDSTOCK festival goers. These shirts are fab and I admit, I thought about purchasing one and wearing as a shirt because I am pretty slim! : ) The festival was a dream event for kids and fun for adults as well. I snagged a cupcakes from the make a cupcake booth and had a blast just taking in how much everyone was enjoying the activities! From hand squeezed lemonade stands to tasty sliders— delicious food and snacks were one of the highlights of the day.

SPECIAL NOTES: Proceeds from Kidstock benefit One Voice Scholars Program. The One Voice Scholars Program mentors and prepares low-income and inner-city Los Angeles high school students for college and places them in top colleges across the United States. With their support, 100% of One Voice scholars gain admission to college. Under the guidance of One Voice, 95% of their scholars graduate from college.  The national graduation rate stands in stark contrast–only 11% of low-income, first-generation students graduate college in six years.  30% of the One Voice Scholars attend graduate school.  Most of the scholars are the first in their family to attend college.

DSW, a first timer at Kidstock, kicked-up the fun with custom Converse High Tops! Airbrush artists were on site to offer personalized designs with 100% of the proceeds benefitting ONE VOICE.Alli Simpson (“Finding Cody”), rocked the imPRESS nail booth helping kids to design their inner Rock Star with press-on manicure looks and nail appliqués.

Jo-Ann Fabric and Craft Stores had three booths set up with various activities including Tie Dye, decorating musical instruments, weaving and beading “Hippie Head Bands,” crafting and making “Rock Icon Bangles.”

The highly anticipated Kidstock Music and Art Festival brought kids of all ages together for an interactive afternoon of live music, arts & crafts and fashionable activities as well as gourmet food provided by Baskin-Robbins, Sprinkles, SodaStream and more, photo booth fun and performances from the hottest pint-sized performers on the planet.

Kidstock is not only an incredible day to share and inspire children through music and creativity, but also to raise an awesome amount of money for the very much needed scholarship fund for the amazing kids of One Voice. It’s a great day of positive and explosive energy that will be heard and felt for generations! – Peter Kim, CEO HUDSON Jeans
