A Very Special Christmas Resources

novembre 21, 2011

Through bold innovation and enormous generosity, the record industry has made beautiful music for Special Olympics athletes since 1987. From the first, released in 1987, to the latest, 2009's  "A Very Special Christmas 7" album, the benefit recording series has become the largest financial source in Special Olympics’ history. This page gives background on the series and provides helpful links.

Sharing Gifts. Sean Kingston, Colbie Caillat and Mitchell Musso are three of the artists featured on the new A Very Special Christmas record. See who else has taken part. 

A Lifeline for Special Olympics

The Christmas album sales fund the Special Olympics Christmas Records Trust, which in turn distributes grants that play a major role in supporting the growth of the Special Olympics movement. Grants are given to support new Programs and innovative ideas and to expand Special Olympics to every corner of the globe. Read all about the history of the records and the many successes of the grants in this 2010 Christmas Records Trust Annual Report.

The Gift that Changes Lives

Selling 1 million copies in its first year, the premiere album, A Very Special Christmas, released in 1987, set a precedent for the following albums, which have generated more than US$100 million for Special Olympics―the most ever raised by a benefit recording series.  "A Very Special Christmas 7" continues the tradition.
