A Cause Worth Fighting For

Recently I went out and purchased War Child's latest effort to fund money for kids at war. A $10 CD that I think that everybody should go BUY or PURCHASE from Itunes. It's a pretty solid CD and a great concept. War Child asked 15 of the most well known artists from decades ago to pick 15 new artists to re-create one of their famous songs. It turned out great! The best part about this is War Child gets every cent that is made off of these CD's (minus applicable taxes of course). Here's the lineup, I hope this inspires you to do a little bit for these poor kids.
