Charity begins at home, so the old saying goes, which is why that’s exactly where we’ll be when raising money for Cancer Research.
We’ll not be in a bath of beans, or seeing how many jaffa cakes we can get in our mouth at once (though that’s not a bad idea at all, jaffa cakes are bloody lovely...) though. No, instead we’ll be joining good friend Robin Seamer, editor of Breaking More Waves, in a 24 hour blogathon. It was Robin’s idea, he deserves the credit.
On 31 January 2014, we will be blogging about music on our site Alphabet Bands for 24 hours straight (except when nature calls of course, but we think that’s only fair). Alphabet Bands has been going for a little over two years now and in that time we’ve been lucky enough to make some great friends in and around the music industry, been given countless albums and singles for free and even the odd concert ticket and piece of merchandise. It’s opened doors that have led to radio appearances, gig promotion and even judging talent competitions. In short, it’s given us a lot, and now it’s time to give something back.
Like Robin, we have chosen Cancer Research as our charity as it is an illness that effects so many of us and can destroy the lives of more than just those unlucky enough to contract it. It’s affected our friends and family and it has possibly affected yours in some way, shape or form as well.
So, whether you are a friend, family member, colleague, reader of the site, band we have (or have not yet) supported, member of the music industry or just a kind hearted soul, please donate and donate generously to support Cancer research and help find a way to beat this illness once and for all.
Adam, editor Alphabet Bands.
