Stephen Pate editor and owner of NJN Network has recorded the Elvis classic Blue Christmas and is donating all proceeds to the Schizophrenia Society. Even internet downloads or sharing will generate a donation.
PRLog (Press Release) – Dec 20, 2010 – Stephen Pate, editor and owner of NJN Network, has recorded the Elvis classic Blue Christmas and is donating the proceeds plus more to charity.
“Christmas is supposed to be a happy time,” said Pate “but for the many people suffering from mental disabilities it can be a time of deeper anguish.”
“The song is about a boy who misses his girlfriend at Christmas. We thought it would be nice to donate the proceeds to the Schizophrenia Society who help people with mental illness and resulting disabilities.”
“Since file sharing is popular these days, we are donating $.10 cents for every person who listens to the song or downloads it for free. When the song is purchased for $0.99 we will donate $1.09.”
NJN Network has also donated all production costs and the copyright royalty to this project. The musicians donated their time. Avolve Technology donated their graphic design for the cover art. Continue reading →
