For many of you this is the time of year that you start thinking about how you can donate your time and give something back. Unfortunately everyone has the same idea and usually all the soup kitchen volunteer demands are full and toys will start stacking up. If you ever work with a volunteer organization they all wish that this sentiment was year round and not just during the holiday season.
If this year you are once again inspired to give back and the Thanks Givends event itself is out of your reach, we may have an option for you. This year the first volume of THE GIVENDS benefit compilation has been put together by artists donating music to raise donations for organizations that incorporate music and art that help underprivileged and at risk youth.
This is a “You name the Price” campaign and it’s something we can all easily participate in by not only donating for an incredible selection of downloads from a variety of independent artists, but sharing the link virally to be able to raise donations and awareness globally. So it’s simple, if we all “Share it forward” to 10 people and so on and so on, then not only do the non-profits benefit but artists in need of larger exposure also get discovered. Win-Win and lets add a third Win, because individuals will be getting great music for what they can afford to give.
Just by you taking the time to read this is in full gratitude and however you can participate from here on out is greatly appreciated.
Thank you sincerely on behalf of loslito and the Walk Talkin family.
