A very Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays to everybody.
This Christmas, I couldn't help but to think of the families missing their loved ones following the terrible tragedy in Newtown, Connecticut.
I am fully aware that there is very little we can do to console the families and loved ones affected this Christmas, but for those of you, like me, who wanted to find a small way to help, we created this PSA: http://youtu.be/7DmXGdWI8Ls for The Sandy Hook School Support Fund. The fund goes entirely to the victims' families and to services to help the surviving children cope - no management fees will be taken by the United Way. It is my sincere hope that this can offer just the slightest hint of solace this Christmas as these families bear the unfathomable.
Anyone interested in broadcasting the PSA, please email us at email@example.com and we will give you a link to download a broadcast quality file.
Deepest gratitude to Parker Ighile, who wrote, produced, performed, and donated the song entirely for free -- with the simple hope that he could do something for these victims. Further thanks to Getty Images, who donated the photos used, Joe Cipriano who donated the voiceover, and to Cimarron Entertainment for producing and editing the piece entirely for free -- just to help.
My deepest and sincerest condolences to those who have lost this Christmas; this is my smallest gift for you.
Love, Quincy Jones
