Hey LPers...I was wondering, do any of you have a charity you feel strongly for? If so, do you do anything to raise awareness? Please share!
Personally, I care a lot about a charity called To Write Love On Her Arms. It's a charity dedicated to helping people with mental illnesses, addictions, suicide, self-harm etc. It is a prime example of where I turn if I'm feeling low. I buy merchandise knowing 100% of the money will be donated to the charity and I am part of their Street Time, so I spend a lot of time trying to raise awareness.
So how about you guys? Any stories?
If you do support charities but can't find ways to do "your bit", try looking to see if they have a street team or, if you don't know, there is a site called www.goodsearch.com which donates money to a charity of your choice with every search! It's like Google except you get a good feeling out of using it.
I am starting a charity program called Make some Music for Relief. There is a group here for it with that exact name. It now only has 16 participants and I am the leader. I would like to invite you to help make songs that we can sell for charity. Please trust me when i say i will not cheat the money. I have been through hell in 2011, and i want none to go through that same hell. Besides I'm already a songwriter for a starting out band, so why would i need the extra money? Please help make some music for relief:)
