Give To The Gulf is the brainchild of the following team of people: Eric Knight of Remarkable Technologies, Inc.; Tom Russo and Paul Lombardo of L&R Productions, Inc.; and Mike Sokol of JMS Productions, Inc.
Our goal is to help the citizens of the Gulf through the environmental catastrophe that is not only destroying the ecosystem — but also ways of life of generations of fine people.
We have developed this online portal for musicians — from around the world — to submit their music for this fund-raising effort. All ownership and copyrights remain the property of the musicians and copyright holders. We are simply the conduit to Apple’s iTunes system under the Give ToThe Gulf music-label umbrella.
Thanks to the technology and team at TuneCore.com, proceeds from this effort will go directly to the people in need through the targeted disaster-relief efforts of the United Way.
Speaking of the United Way: The United Way for the Greater New Orleans Area deserves great credit for coordinating with us on this project — and for streamlining the process for contributions to go to the United Way Gulf Recovery Fund. We’re very proud to be associated with their fine efforts.
Great thanks also goes out to an extraordinarily talented artist and designer, John Parkinson of Parkinson Design, for generously conceptualizing and producing our stunning “Give To The Gulf” logo.
We want to especially thank Bill Holloman for his phenomenal music engineering — as well as his vocals on Give To The Gulf and I Believe.
All time and efforts– by all entities — have been donated to this cause. It’s our mutual love of music, and our desire to help, that motivates what we’re doing.
Eric, Tom, Paul, and Mike.
