“What a great concept from Always Saturday for businesses to not only help out financially, but to continue to share the love with their own employees and customers."
Elberton, GA (PRWEB) July 03, 2012
Rehabmart.com, an online e-commerce company that sells rehabilitation and medical supplies, has made a contribution to “Our 10K” at Always Saturday to benefit children with cancer at Camp Sunshine in Decatur, Georgia. Always Saturday is a fun and inspirational Atlanta-based musical group dedicated to creating bright songs and spoken-word stories for families that connect communities and benefit kids. The founding members comprise Marc Castelo, Donny Todd and Dan Fishman who are absolutely dedicated to composing thoughtful songs and stories that celebrate family, and all three believe in the power of music to inspire kids, connect people and enrich lives. Their debut record, “Love is Plural” consists of both songs and spoken-word stories, and is based on one simple phrase: “love is all around us.” Inspired as fathers and by working with special needs families, love has impacted their lives in some very powerful ways. Continuing in this spirit of love, they decided to use this music to benefit families affected by cancer at Camp Sunshine. Two more musicians, Doug MacMillan (The Connells, Mommie) and Annie Hyra (The Hyras, Billy Pilgrim), who both just happen to be cancer survivors themselves also perform on the record.
For Always Saturday, music and stories are a great way to connect communities and to help raise awareness and funding for outstanding family-related organizations, such as for Camp Sunshine. The group hosts 'Love is Plural' benefit events, like the Sunshine Family Fest in 2011, and their “Bright Story Hours” for school and community centers. In late 2011, Always Saturday introduced the 'Love is Plural 10K', with the goal of reaching 10,000 song downloads of their song, “Love is Plural” for kids living with cancer at Camp Sunshine. For $1, anyone can download the song and all proceeds will directly benefit Camp Sunshine's local projects and summer camps for families whose children are battling cancer. Always Saturday is additionally looking for “10 companies that 'Kare'” to help them reach their 10,000 song download goal. Companies and businesses can pay for and download a certain amount of songs that can then be given away for free to their own employees and customers. Rehabmart.com is one of these special donors who have 500 free song downloads of “Love is Plural” to give away and to help share the love. Free downloads from Rehabmart can be found by 'liking' their Facebook page at https://www.facebook.com/Rehabmart.
Camp Sunshine was founded in 1982 by pediatric nurse, Dorothy Jordan. It began as a summer camp for children with cancer and held its first camp in 1983 with 44 children, and started to expand to other programs in 1987 when the first Family Camp Weekend was held. Today, over 375 campers and 200 volunteers participate. While summer camp is still the largest program Camp Sunshine provides, it is only one of many recreational programs held throughout the year, including family camp weekends, teen retreats and activities, pre-school programs, young adult programs and sibling camp, as well as educational and support programs. “We are thrilled to be able to help raise awareness and to contribute directly to the success of Camp Sunshine,” said Hulet Smith, Founder and CEO of Rehabmart. “What a great concept from Always Saturday for businesses to not only help out financially, but to continue to share the love with their own employees and customers. We hope that by sharing these free song downloads, that others will feel inspired to participate and share as well. Camp Sunshine is much more than a camp. It is a program that offers an infusion of love, support, fun, acceptance and hope for children with cancer. This is a great way to give some love back to this outstanding organization.”
