Kid Rock might be playing smaller venues, but his giving has expanded in several ways. The Detroit rock star is setting an example for his fans and for other musicians through his Care Tour on how to make a difference in the world. His Care Tour includes playing in smaller venues in different cities while making donations to local charities in each place.

Rock claimed that since his son is in college he needed to figure out what to do with himself. He told The Boot, “I was sitting at home trying to figure out what the hell do I do now? So I finally thought to myself, the one thing I love beyond friends and family is music. So why don’t we get back to the music we love and go out and do something good for people?”

His foundation, The Kid Rock Foundation, focuses on those who need help in Detroit, but he wanted to do more than just help people locally so he set out on the Care Tour. When the Care Tour is completed he says, “We will have given $375,000 to friends in these cities through the Foundation.”

Gilda’s Club, Best Buddies, Nashville Rescue Mission, Safe House Denver, Excelsior Youth Center, Bikers Against Abuse, and Helping Hands Ministries have all seen donations from Kid Rock through his Care Tour. One young woman from Kentucky received a $5,000 check from the star to help her pay for enrollment at an alternative private high school.

To help his Care Tour succeed, a group of businessmen from Detroit agreed to match ticket sales from each small venue he plays at on the tour. Kid Rock pointed out, “I can afford to go out and do a few shows and give back to folks who need a little help.”

Kid Rock will see himself honored as an individual who is making a difference in the world and improving the lives of others on Dec. 11 in an episode fo “CNN Heros: An All-Star Tribute.”
