Christmas Appeal from Sarah Ellen Hughes.

Tomorrow, Sunday December 2, I'm releasing a Christmas single – it’s a song I've written, and it’s sung by the children at my school.  We’re releasing it to raise money for a charity called Music as Therapy International, which is a UK-based charity working to support disabled children and adults for a better quality of life through music.
I need to make about 3,000 sales of the song to raise any money for the charity and this could possibly get us into the UK charts.  I'm taking on this massive project by myself as I don’t have any management/PR/record company on board, so I'm hoping to get some help from friends and colleagues, particularly people I've worked with before in a musical capacity, as this project is for a music charity.
So, if you are able to, would you mind mentioning it in a newsletter/on a mailing list, to help spread the word as much as possible.  I appreciate that a mailing list is a delicate thing, and you can’t go overboard on promotion, but if think that your mailing list would be receptive to this, then I would truly appreciate your help.
The details are:
Let the Light Shine Down, by Riverside Children’s Choir
Written by Sarah Ellen Hughes
Released 2nd December 2012.
Sold in aid of Music as Therapy International.
Digital release only – buy it for 79p on iTunes.
And of course, it would be amazing if you could buy a copy next Sunday!!  Thank you so much!

I'd like to add my voice to the appeal and ask every one of our readers to download the single.
It's only 79p!
