Two local independent record labels – Ronald Records (owned/operated by Jonathan Jennings of Turlock) and Way Grimace Records (owned/operated by Sean Duncan of Oakdale) – are spearheading an effort to raise money and awareness for the recent events that took place in Nepal.
The “Benefit for Nepal” Compilation was created in response to the tragic earthquakes that occurred in Nepal on April 25 and May 12, in which more than 8,000 people died. The devastating quakes have left thousands injured and in need of help. The Women’s Foundation of Nepal is a non-profit and non-governmental organization that is currently working to bring immediate emergency relief to Nepal and they are seeking donations to aid their efforts. You can learn more about WFN at www.womennepal.org and keep up with their relief efforts on their Facebook page.
In an effort to raise money and awareness for the cause, 25 Independent Record Labels have come together to release the “Benefit for Nepal” Compilation featuring 50 artists contributing songs. The music is from a variety of different genres and many of the tracks are previously unreleased. The compilation was released as of Monday, May 18 and is available as a “Name Your Price” Download at www.benefitfornepal.bandcamp.com and 100 percent of the money raised will be donated directly to the Women’s Foundation of Nepal.
“Please consider sharing this link and donating to this cause,” said Duncan.
