I’d like to announce the start of this blog to accompany the release of my new album for Eco-Crusaders. It’s called The Last Frontier.
You and I know there are millions of people all over the world who care about the Earth and are doing things everyday to help our planet; our numbers are growing everyday. I’ve written and recorded these songs for them, for you, and for all of us with a passion for saving the planet.
I’ve also established a partnership with the environmental and humanitarian group AZAFADY, and am donating $3.00 from every sale of his new album directly to this London-based group’s tree planting program called Project Hazo. This project is helping to plant desperately needed trees in southeastern Madagascar. This donation amount makes it possible for everyone who purchases a cd to actually fund the planting of a tree.
AZAFADY employs over 70 local staff at its project headquarters in Fort Dauphin, Madagascar, where they are working for the environment through tree-planting and a range of conservation initiatives. I selected AZAFADY for several reasons. Madagascar is probably the hottest of Earth’s environmental hotspots, and AZAFADY is a hands-on organization. It’s obvious their efforts are making a real difference in one of the planet’s most unique and important places.
The album is available now in cd or download format by visiting http://www.jp-taylor.com/. Please visit AZAFADY’s website at http://www.madagascar.co.uk/ for more details about their work in Madagascar.
Thanks for taking the moment to read this, and for all you do for our planet.
