Today we launch our first of hopefully many charitable campaigns within the Blubrry podcast community. The Blubrry Jam To Fight Cystic Fibrosis is a campaign that will benefit the Exercise For Life scholarship fund that provides financial assistance to those living with cystic fibrosis. Cystic fibrosis (CF) is an incurable disease of the the lungs that cuts the life expectancy of those afflicted to just 37 years.
We are teaming up on the campaign with podsafe music artist Brother Love and the Boomer Esiason Foundation. The Boomer Esiason Foundation started the Exercise For Life program after being inspired by Cystic Fibrosis Podcast host Jerry Cahill. Jerry is 50 years and living with CF. Jerry has improved his quality of live and extended his life expectancy by focusing on fitness throughout his life.
The campaign is running from March 15th thru May 15th and includes a live benefit concert in New York City on April 7th. On that night Brother Love will debut his long awaited follow up to Album Of The Year. Attendees of the live event will receive the new Brother Love CD as a gift for supporting the cause.
Everything you need to know about the campaign can be found over at www.blubrryjam.com. In short we’re asking all members of the worldwide podcast community to support the effort via donations and promotion of the campaign. If you’re a Blubrry podcaster, please replace any mentions of Blubrry with a mention of the Blubrry Jam for the length of the campaign. If we all come together we can really make a difference in the lives of those who are financially, physically and emotionally affected by this disease.
Please direct any questions about the campaign to Rob Safuto at marketing[at]rawvoice[dot]com.
