Lost Child Single for Charity

lost_chil_cover_art_Lost Child is the first single off our next album. This track was inspired by the Newtown tragedy and all similar acts of violence in this world we live in. Especially when children are involved. The children are our future and we must stand up to protect them from physical and mental abuse. This is our way of standing up to help them. Actions are worth so much. Stop the talk and walk the walk. Children need our help.

All the proceits, and I mean ALL the proceits, will be given to  to these two charities for victims of violent acts:

Isabelle Boisvenu Fund and Beyond Borders

ISABELLE BOISVENU FUND

The Isabelle Boisvenu Fund was established in memory of Isabelle Boisvenu who died accidentally in December, 2005. With her father Pierre-Hugues Boisvenu, she was significantly involved in setting up AFPAD.

This fund, managed independently from AFPAD activities, was created to help research in the field of victimology by means of scholarships or subsidies granted to university students. For this purpose, a management committee consisting of a representative of the Boisvenu family, an AFPAD representative and one from the university environment annually overviews the various guidelines that govern the granting of scholarships.

This fund is set up in the memory of Isabelle Boisvenu, who died in December, 2005. It aims at getting to know more about problems facing collateral or indirect victims of manslaughter or criminal disappearance.

 

BEYOND BORDERS

Beyond Borders

In 1996, Canadian government delegates, as well as representatives from non-governmental organizations (NGO’s) were invited to participate in the first World Congress Against Commercial Sexual Exploitation of Children in Stockholm, Sweden.

Canada went into the conference believing that the biggest concern was Canadian offenders committing acts against foreign children. It became clear, however, that there were many Canadian children abroad who were victims of exploitation as well.

These children were beyond borders—being abused and neglected by foreigners, family members, and the system that was created to protect them. Policies within each government were as complex as the regulations between countries.

Two members of the Canadian delegation decided to do something to help these children. Rosalind Prober, an official observer invited by the Canadian government, and Mark Erik Hecht, a children’s rights lawyer, created a new NGO (Beyond Borders) to bring global justice to children everywhere.

In 1999 Beyond Borders was granted affiliate status with ECPAT International, the campaign to End Child Prostitution, Child Pornography and the Trafficking of Children for Sexual Purposes.

Having a great day at the 2012 Montreal Marathon on the 29th of September. Our soundman was absolutely awesome. Even Pete was so anxious to get to the gig that he forgot his drum seat. Well  Jack and I took a walk before we hit the stage and we found something for Pete.
