FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
In an effort to support the victims of the wildfires in and around Fort McMurray, Canadian recording artists Age of Days will be donating proceeds from their acoustic single “Afflicted”.
“It’s a very tragic situation and my heart goes out to everyone affected. My parents, two sisters, their husbands and my nephew - literally my whole family - lives in Fort McMurray, so it is overwhelming and terrifying to see what the city is going through right now” said vocalist Tim Morrison.
“I got a call from my sister who was crying and telling me what was happening. My heart sank and I felt helpless and fearful for everyone. I travel to Fort McMurray frequently and even lived there a short time myself, so I still consider it my second home”.
“The band and I just can’t imagine what the people of Fort McMurray are going through, and we want to contribute in any way we can”.
Age of Days has recorded an acoustic version of their 2008 single “Afflicted”, originally from their album “Hollywood Ending”, and will donate the proceeds to the Red Cross Fort McMurray Fire Relief Fund.
The song can be purchased on iTunes or by following this link:
Age of Days would like to personally thank the brave men and women firefighters, police officers, first responders and everyone involved in the safe evacuation of 88,000+ Fort McMurray residents.
“The effects of this tragedy will be felt for years to come and we hope we can help in some small way to help rebuild. As proud Canadians it is our natural response to lend a hand any way we can. The people of Fort McMurray deserve our support!” said Morrison.
“Age of Days would like to urge everyone to make a direct donation to the Red Cross FIRST to help with the urgent immediate needs of those displaced by the fires. We hope you will purchase the song as a secondary donation”.
To help donate the Red Cross has set up an emergency 'Alberta Fires' appeal. You can text REDCROSS to 30333 to make a $5 donation or a $10 donation by texting the word “fires” to 45678.
