Glad to hear it (pun intended), but I don’t understand a one day sale only. Not exactly to way to raise the maximum amount of money.

How lovely and nice! “Our brains are better on music”.

I am wondering if people can be inspired to donate directly to Fair Fight? I have donated several times hope others will too.

Reach out with love and care for everyone It is free to everyone
People like you and me need love to survive
Love’s not something you can buy; it’s a feeling deep inside
Open up your heart, smile and make a friend.
Every bit of love you give, you’ll get back in the end

Reach out with love and care for everyone
Love turns darkness into light.
Reach out with love and care to everyone
Love is our human right.

We’ve all see people suffering at home and across the world
Millions live in anguish with no hope left at all .
Show them some compassion because we’re all family
Send them all the care you can; your love will set you free .

Reach out with love and care for everyone
Love turns darkness into light.
Reach out with love and care to everyone
Love is our human right.

We all want to live in peace and have freedom every day,
So why do we hurt each other?
There is a better way - spread loving-kindness everywhere you can
Everyone’s your neighbor now - there are no foreign lands .

Reach out with love and care for everyone
Love turns darkness into light.
Reach out with love and care to everyone
Love is our human right.

………If we don’t care for each other we can kiss the world goodbye.
Love holds life together ; just love and don’t ask why .

Make friends all with your neighbors; love them and we will all survive!

Reach out with love and care for everyone
Love turns darkness into light.
Reach out with love and care to everyone
Love is our human right.

I’m wondering if the one day only sale is to protect the producers/artists profits, and make themselves look generous in the eyes of the public. I hope that’s not the case.

It’s going to take more than a music CD to shore up the United States. It will take a revolution of spirit, beginning inside each person, everyone refusing to give the Empire what it constantly demands—unqualified obedience and silent enabling of its monstrous agendas. Then, we might actually have democracy—for the first time.

I hope not either, but when it’s the music “industry” rather than the artists, pushing it I get suspicious—I’ve acquired, over 63 years, an increasing allergy to corporate much-of-anything.

Jackson Brown donated a million dollars to Massachusetts General Hospital (he survived having the virus) for covid-19 care. Lets hope they put it to good use. Bravo for his music as well.
