World Vision Advances Outreach with Partnerships in Entertainment
|TOP|World Vision, international relief agency, has been actively partnering with the entertainment industry to further promote their outreach.
The organisation will offer DVDs and CDs to donors, including The Chronicles of Narnia, which will be given to anyone who will sponsor a child. Now with Provident Music Group, they are offering the new WOW Worship Aqua double CD set at no additional cost to those who give $20 or more to support World Vision's efforts.
With the goal to help those in need, World Vision has a gift catalogue along with music and DVD merchandise, where anyone can purchase everything from a chicken and some pigs to a well or a tree for those in need.
In addition, World Vision has been partnering with Christian musicians to further spread the vision of making a difference in the world.
|AD|During GMA Music Week in Nashville on April 3, 2006, World Vision sponsored a showcase featuring renowned artists such as Avalon, Natalie Grant, Matthew West, Casting Crowns, Third Day, and Russ Lee, where they gave personal testimonies that were aimed to encourage the audience to gain hope and take action.
Provident recording, GRAMMY-winning band Third Day recently came alongside World Vision's ‘Children Of War’ campaign to rehabilitate children in Uganda and “give them a hope and a future,” according to Third Day’s bassist Tai Anderson.
“Last year we were introduced to a film called “Invisible Children: Rough Cut” that documented the tragic situation in Gulu in which children are taken from their homes, armed with machine guns and sent into rebel warfare for the LRA (Lord’s Resistance Army). We immediately wanted to bring resolution, aid and awareness to this issue, and we knew our fans would want to be involved as well.”
At each concert and online, the band is encouraging its fans to sign up for a monthly pledge of $20 to raise money for the Children of War Rehabilitation Center in Gulu, which reaches out to escaped LRA children, giving them medical treatment, counselling, and spiritual aid. The Centre has helped more than 13,000 formerly abducted children to recover from their trauma, prepare for a productive future, and in most cases, return to their families and communities.
