Over on Thinking out Loud, a blog I read with much frequency, Paul Wilkinson reviewed a new CD/DVD a month back.
The CD is called Compassion Art. Based in part on Paul's review and seeing the CD in the bookstore I picked up a copy and let me just say................WOW! WOW! WOW!
You can read the Press Release here but in short 12 artists: Michael W. Smith, Darlene Zschech, Chris Tomlin, Matt Redman, Tim Hughes, Paul Baloche, Israel Houghton, Graham Kendrick, Steven Curtis-Chapman, Andy Park, Stu Garrard, Martin Smith all got together to write and record songs for charity.
The proceeds from this and other projects all go to 4 charities picked by the group and 12 by the individual artists.
With an album, book and even coffee, yes coffee, available there are many chances to donate to these awesome charities!
You can also sign up for updates, learn about promotions of other events to help the poor, etc.
If you can tell I am stoked by this project. I have bought the CD, ordered the book and look FW to checking out the material available on this website regularly. So buy the CD, read the book, drink the coffee and help the worlds poor all at the same time!
