The Marsh Family
"If That Day Comes Round" - Marsh Family Christmas Song for The International Red Cross Appeal
Fundraising for The British Red Cross Society
We wrote and recorded a song in November, in response to the plight of innocent victims of conflict in Israel and Palestine, calling for peace and light. Atrocities and acts of war have bred cycles of hatred that pollute the world far beyond the Middle East, and our lyrics - written with input from people on both sides of divides - call for peace and light, knowing that it will take a miracle.
Since Saturday 7th October, a devastating humanitarian crisis in Israel and the Occupied Palestinian Territory has developed. International staff and volunteers have been working round the clock to respond to urgent needs, including treating casualties - many of them children. The ICRC are ready to provide further humanitarian assistance as required on both sides.
If our song can bring even a small amount of extra resource to their activities in support of innocent families and casualties, then we'd love for it to have an impact beyond its message. We will be donating all proceeds from the music or appearances linked to it.
The Israel and Occupied Palestinian Territory Appeal will support people in areas currently affected and those potentially affected in the future by the crisis. In the unlikely event that we raise more money than can be reasonably and efficiently spent, any surplus funds will be used to help us prepare for and respond to other humanitarian disasters anywhere in the the world.
