About The Rising World Foundation
IN THE BEGINNING… Rising World Foundation was founded in 1998 (under the original name of The Kids X-Pressions, Inc.) as a nonprofit corporation and received exempt status under Section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue code. It was organized exclusively for charitable, educational and literary purposes.
AS THE 21st CENTURY UNFOLDS… we find that the predominant culture of music and art that was inherited from the previous century is unsuitable: abstract scribbles on canvases that are purchased for millions of dollars, films and television shows that glorify darkness, meaningless music with no melody, and concert halls and cathedrals resounding in discord.
OUR MISSION… is to bring into the world an important educational and entertainment platform that will reach everywhere, helping create a transformation of culture from its predominate state of negativity to a realization of the goals of all true art: emotional healing and spiritual growth.
THIS WEBSITE… introduces our mission and provides a valuable resource for young students from around the world.
