Join Taylor Hicks to Help Support the Children of Alabama

As part of Taylor’s Angels series highlighting various charities that are accomplishing great things this holiday season as a result of the inspiration of Taylor Hicks, we are proud to feature our first charity, Kid One Patrol of Soul (KOPS). KOPS is a very special group who is sponsoring several incredible and fun events that we are sure you will want to support! Remember that all proceeds go to Kid One Transport, one of Taylor’s favorite charities located in his hometown of Birmingham, Alabama. And the best part is not only will you be helping countless children receive much needed medical care, you will also be eligible to win some awesome prizes! Taylor’s Angels is proud to feature the KOPS “Booking it for Kid One”, “Jolly Old St. Nick Hicks Picks” and “A Year Full of Heart and Soul” 2009 Taylor Hicks calendar! We hope that everyone will join together with Taylor and support the children of Alabama!

"Bookin' It For Kid One" Holiday Book Drive!


During the 2007 & 2008 holiday seasons, the Soul Patrol generously donated 3080 Beanie Babies for the children of Kid One Transport! The joy each baby brought to these wonderful children was priceless! The joy those of us who participated felt, was overwhelming! The feeling of making a difference in the lives of the children can never be measured.This year, Kid One has asked KOPS to organize a book drive with the Soul Patrol hoping to collect as many Children and Young Teen books as possible for the 2008 Holiday season. The books will be handed out to each of the children traveling to their medical appointments during the month of December.What a wonderful gift for the kids this year! The ages of the children range between 1 and 18, so please look for books older children would enjoy, as well!Visit your dollar stores or book stores and purchase as many books as you would like to donate to the kids this holiday season. Mail the books directly to Kid One and they will do the rest! Book donations need to be delivered to Kid One by November 22, 2008 so the children can receive their books starting December 1st!KOPS would like to thank those who participate in this project by holding a drawing for a wonderful gift package filled with some very unique Taylor Hicks items along with a one of a kind Soul Patrol necklace.

Purchase and mail at least two books to Kid One Transport for your first chance in the drawing. For every book you purchase thereafter, you will receive additional chances in the drawing!

Please mail your books to:

KOPS has evolved into a very worthwhile "organization" with dedicated members. Plaudits to those gals who are helping such a fine charity as Kid One Transport and to Taylor's Angels for helping to spread the message .

I certainly hope that the SP will be able to support one or more of these "drives"...such fun and for such a good cause.

Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays to all the children serviced by KO.
