Want to help support lupus research? I found an easy way to do that today.
There's a new song called "LUCY" by Julian Lennon and James Scott Cook. Here's the background on it, directly from the Lupus Foundation of America:
Musicians James Scott Cook and Julian Lennon are doing their part in the search for a cure for Lupus. For both men – this is personal. James’ 92-year-old grandmother, Lucy Cook, has lived with lupus for many years, and Julian’s childhood friend, Lucy Vodden, recently passed away at the age of 46 after a long battle with the disease.
You may already have heard the story that one day four-year old Julian brought home a watercolor painting of his friend and classmate, Lucy Vodden. Julian told his dad that the drawing was “Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds” which inspired his father, the legendary John Lennon, to write one of his most famous songs of the same name.
To honor both of these women James and Julian have partnered to release the song, "LUCY." A portion of the proceeds will be donated equally to the Lupus Foundation of America and the St. Thomas Lupus Trust in Great Britain to support lupus research. From now until March 15, 2010, 100% of the proceeds from each download of "LUCY" will be donated to lupus research.
I already bought the song on iTunes. Join me by buying your own copy and helping to fund lupus research!
