Seeds of Kindness: Shine Together

The Album

Shine Together is the culmination of months of effort on the part of many dedicated fandom musicians. Featuring twenty-two tracks of folk, rock, orchestral, and electronic jams recorded by charity album veterans and new blood alike, Shine Together offers over an hour of uplifting tunes.

The Charity

Half the world’s population is at risk of malaria. In 2012, about 627,000 people died of malaria, the equivalent of four Boeing 747 crashing every day with no survivors. On average, one person dies of malaria every minute. This has to stop.

Long-lasting insecticide-treated nets (LLINs) are the most cost-effective means of malaria prevention and also protect against dengue fever, yellow fever, and forms of encephalitis. The Against Malaria Foundation (AMF) funds the millions of nets that are needed in LLIN distributions. It stands out for its commitment to transparency and self-evaluation. AMF is one of the most provably effective charities in the world.

All donations to Seeds of Kindness go directly to AMF, who use them exclusively to buy LLINs. Donations are tax-deductible in the US, Canada, and most of Western Europe. Each donation will be publicly allocated to a specific distribution, and extensive distribution and follow-up reports will be published online.

For further motivation why you should donate and donate to AMF, here a TED talk by Peter Singer and a TEDx talk by Toby Ord, explaining effective altruism.
