A Little Help From Our Friends

As we sit down on a comfortable suede-leather seat enjoying a nice warm meal, there are people suffering at the end of the planet that we ain't aware of. They may not be as lucky as those who gets Wi-Fi access all around town, probably not as fortunate as those who gets to rock a decent pair of Dunk.

Methods and approaches have been initiated from time to time with the formation of charitable organisations to help the needy ones and to curb the scenario in getting worsen. Talking about charity organisations, that one aid effort which caught our attention on recent event is War Child.

War Child provides assistance and supports to protect childrens affected by the wars, poverty and marginalisation. Not only this heartfelt approach has made us shed a little tear or two, we are particularly excited over the involvement of some of the biggest names in the planet to show their support as well.

On February 16, the War Child Heroes album was released. Featuring 15 ultimate cover songs performed by your favorite artists including Franz Ferdinand, Beck, Lily Allen, Scissor Sisters, Duffy, Elbow, TV On The Radio, Hot Chip, The Kooks, Estelle, Rufus Wainwright, Peaches, The Hold Steady, The Like and Yeah Yeah Yeahs. (purchase the album)

In conjunction with the charity album release, English fashion designer Sir Paul Smith created a t-shirt to show his support as well. Available in three colorways, the t-shirt features a distinctive gun-print adapted from the album cover designed by John Squire. The tees are limited to 250 pieces. (purchase the t-shirt)

Proceedings from both merchandises will go directly to the aid. For more information on the organisation, please visit War Child official site.

Together we can make a difference.
