Online PR News – 14-October-2012 – New York, New York – Global Poverty Project hooked modernistic recording act, Veil, with their mission, "to see the end of extreme poverty within a single generation". The Global Poverty Project hosted a Central Park festival this year that featured Neil Young with Crazy Horse, Foo Fighters, and The Black Keys. The concert generated awareness of global poverty, prompting the band Veil to donate profits from the sale of their single “E-Sahka” to the organization.
“Veil was formed for the sole purpose of trying to do something different in the world using music as their platform,” says Dan McGarr, the band’s PR representative. ”The Global Poverty Project hits home for members of the band as they have experienced the effects of extreme poverty firsthand.”
The band has been in communication with Judith Rowland at Global Poverty Project, whom has made the process of donating nearly effortless. The band is donating 80% of label profits and artist royalties to the Global Poverty Project with the remaining percentage being donated to mental health efforts worldwide.
Lead singer of Veil, Veronika Salvador, explained, “People are suffering, and they need help. Our plan from the beginning has been to dedicate ourselves and our work to helping others. I received help to lift me out of dark times when I needed it, so now it’s time to give back and do it for someone else.”
Veil’s song is now on iTunes, and every download profits Global Poverty Project.
