I’m a fan of Joy Collins. I’ve reviewed her CD, “It Ain’t Just Music”. And if you still haven’t purchased this great music, now is the perfect time. Because in addition to getting yourself some awesome country music, you will be helping the American Red Cross help the people in Oklahoma. If you missed the review of her CD, please click here to find out what you missed. Below is a press release I received about how Joy plans on helping the victims of the Oklahoma tornados, but donating 50 percent of the proceeds from the sale of her CD to the American Red Cross. Here is the press release:
Once again, tragedy has struck this Great Country of ours. This time however, tragedy did not come at the hand of our enemy, it came in the form of a brutal natural disaster. On Monday, May 20, 2013, a deadly tornado unmercifully ripped through our Nation’s Heartland, delivering record-breaking devastation to Moore, Oklahoma and surrounding areas. As I write this, the death toll and total damage assessment are still unknown. What we do know NOW, is our Oklahoman Friends NEED HELP!
In an emotional statement, Nashville Recording Artist Joy Collins offered up condolences to all affected by this overwhelming tragedy. Unable to hold back tears, Ms. Collins stated ” this is absolutely unbelievable. My heart is heavy at the thought of what these people are going through.” She went on to say “As a mother of three precious sons myself, I can’t comprehend how the parents of the missing, injured, or deceased children are able to function. All my love, thoughts, and prayers to all of them. I also want to encourage everyone to pray for the safety of the Volunteers and Emergency Service Personnel .”
“As a Registered Nurse, I know that medical services, food, clothing and support for the victims, their families, and Emergency Service Workers is of paramount importance! Fortunately, when tragedy strikes this great nation of ours, there IS an organization that faithfully delivers these services. That organization is The American Red Cross.”
Like most Americans, Joy refuses to stand by during times like this. Being a nurse, her first thought was to jump in the car and head west to Oklahoma. However, after multiple media reports asking people to refrain from physically showing up to help, Joy made the decision to donate her help in the way most needed right now. And my friends, the best way we can all help is FINANCIALLY!
Joy has made the commitment to financially support the American Red Cross.
“We are a Nation that has suffered financially for the past five years. During these hard economic times, many of us have struggled just to make ends meet. Therefore, it is only natural that monetary contributions to organizations such as The American Red Cross declined.
However, We are truly blessed to live in a Nation where we come together during difficult times. Though we may have our personal differences in this Country, America remains the greatest nation to call home, and her citizens will faithfully rise to lend a hand when a disaster alarm sounds. Thank God we still live in a place where a stranger IS truly willing to give you the shirt off their back if you need it.
” As of this morning and until further notice, I will be immediately donating, to The American Red Cross, 50% of sales revenue from each digital copy of my 2012 debut CD “It Ain’t Just Music” downloaded directly from our website . I will be earmarking these funds for immediate distribution to the Moore, Oklahoma Tornado Relief Fund.
Don’t miss your chance, not only to purchase some great music, but to help the people in Oklahoma. Thanks, Joy, you’re awesome!
