Download an Album, Help the Turkana People

Jesse Humm ’12 writes in with a great cause you can help by purchasing an album created by Wesleyan students:

With a lot of help from musicians Howe Pearson, Jesse Humm, Immanuel Lokwei, and Matt Hurwit have gotten the amazing opportunity to release an album that showcases the work of incredible Wesleyan musicians from Uganda to liberal arts colleges, from the bustling Big Apple to San Francisco. We’re offering this CD to all of you, whom we love so dearly, and need some support to help a worthwhile cause. All of the proceeds will benefit Kenyans of all ages from villages in Kenya called Kalemng’orok and Eldoret.

We will be:

1) Helping an orphanage called the Lewa’s Children’s Home, notable for helping the Chokora, a group of street children in the Elderot region: http://www.africanrelief.org/lewa.html
2) Constructing a Relief Center in one of the Most Hunger Stricken Places in Kenya
3) Creating a Youth Soccer Club

For more information please visit our blog at:

To download the album, go to http://musicianshelpinghands.bandcamp.com/

Please help us realize this vision by sending us your kind donations with two easy steps:
1) On the main page, click “Download Album,” and name your price (the album is available for free, too, if you want to listen to the music first!)
2) Enter your credit card information (all of the money will go directly into an account open for the cause), and a link to the music will be emailed to you!

If you have any questions PLEASE contact Howe Pearson ’12, Jesse Humm ’12, Immanel Lokwei ’12, Matt Hurwit ’12 or Sarah Vandermeer.

    These kids are great. I’m downloading and contributing right now. It will be a lovely reminder of Wesleyan to have this summer.
