Title: Good Cause: Help Get Polio Vaccines to Kids Who Need Them!
Post by: KatieHal on May 11, 2010, 09:40:13 PM
Hey everyone, the wonderfully talented Amy Kurylo, our narrator and singer of "The Day You Were Gone," has a special request for anyone who's able to donate to a really great cause. In her words:

Quote
I'm part of an 18 piece jazz ensemble that is going to go to Europe to play to find a cure for polio. I will be singing at the Montreux Jazz Festival in Switzerland for two days. It's the epitome of Jazz festivals - like saying I'm going to sing at Carnegie Hall. Plus, I'll be in Paris, London, Liverpool and parts of Germany singing at concerts with the band - All to raise funding for Polio. Bill and Melinda Gates foundation will match whatever we raise over there.
    Here's the dilemma. The trip will have to wait another year without the Montreux Jazz Festival if we don't raise a little more funding in the next 2 weeks.
    ... this is an opportunity for a lot of cool things. Helping kids, helping the band ... If nothing else, it's a great cause.

You can donate money and get more information here through their website:  <>http://www.rivercitiesjazz.com/europetour.php

It is indeed a good cause, and doesn't just give our narrator a great opportunity, but also gives some kids who greatly need it a chance to get a vaccine for a potentially debilitating disease!

And I have now made my donation as well!  Good luck, Amy!  Break a leg out there.  It's fantastic that you're utilizing your gifts for this cause.
