The December 10th Fund
A Fan Tribute in honour of Led Zeppelin
December 10th 2007 - a date that will live in the hearts of Led Zeppelin fans of forever! You didn't even have to be in the arena to experience the joy. It rippled out to every fan that admired the band. It was a very special night. I still talk about it at length to other fans, and sharing the memories is as much fun now as it was the night I walked out of the concert.
Led Zeppelin's music touched my life in a significant way, and I carry the affects of it with me to this very day. It just makes me happy. I'd like to spread that happiness, and I know other fans would too, so Memories in Music is starting a fund to do just that. If we could get every Led Zeppelin fan to donate even a small amount to this fund, we'd have a whopping amount of money to donate to a good cause in honour of the band, and spread the happiness to people who find themselves in need.
All the money in the fund for 2011 went to Guide Dogs UK to sponsor Cracker, a lovely black dog that is in training to be a guide (Visit their website here: http://www.guidedogsgiving.org.uk/sponsorapuppy/home ). We sponsored Cracker as a gift to Led Zeppelin, and the donation made celebrating the anniversary of the show even more special! We'll keep track of Cracker and post regular updates for you here.
Long live Led Zeppelin, and long live their fans!

Comments from fans who have donated to the Dec 10th Fund:
I just donated to the December 10th Fund because I'm a Led Zeppelin fan. 'Nuff said! - Lif C. Strand
I'm donating to the Memories in Music December 10 Fund because the O2 concert itself was for charity, and this is a great opportunity to continue tying in my happy memories of the concert with the spirit of giving. Also, at the O2 concert, the whole Memories in Music concept hadn't fully taken form yet, and I want to recognize how far Annie has taken this idea over these past few years. Fantastic! -- Tom
