Announcing “Don’t Be Afraid” (Of the Light that shines within you)
A compilation album in aid of Samaritans
Release Date: Oct 9th
People who are going through difficult times will often want to share their problems with family or friends, but sometimes, for a number of reasons, it can be hard to talk to those who are closest. It can be easier to talk to a stranger, and this is where Samaritans comes in. They provide a safe place for people to talk when things are getting to them.
This CD, features songs from some of Irelands most beloved artists and bands such as Mary Black, Imelda May, Hozier, Paddy Casey, Brian Kennedy, The Coronas, Tommy Fleming, Maura O’Connell and the Hothouse Flowers to name but a few. The songs chosen, deliver a powerful message of hope. The CD is dedicated to any of us who may find support in calling Samaritans and imparts the message that within the 21 branches on the island of Ireland, with 2,000 volunteers, Samaritans are there to listen.
Like the artists and bands that have dedicated their songs to this CD, Samaritans volunteers are ordinary people who do extraordinary things, and their service is available around the clock every single day of the year. Calls are confidential and those who contact them can be themselves – Samaritans do not judge.
The CD will be readily available to purchase on iTunes and all good digital sites from Oct 9th as well as in select stores Nationwide. All proceeds from the sale of the cd will go towards Samaritans. For all updates and info, please check out the website http://dontbeafraidcd.com
