Willpower Entertainment and Our Positive Impact
Without getting all sappy, Willpower Entertainment cares about the world that has been so good to us. A lot of people are hurting, and we feel that very strongly ourselves. The label can't keep promoting music while ignoring what is happening and not doing anything to make people's lives better. Music ALSO makes people's lives better, but there is so much more we could be doing.
Some facts to illustrate our point:
-Less than 1% of what the governments of the world spend on their militaries is enough to put every child ON EARTH, into school!!!
-For less than the cost of the Iraq War, we could have ended world hunger for 30 YEARS!!!
If that makes you angry, then I can tell you that we feel the same way. Frankly, it's unacceptable, and we have a small part in changing things for the better. Instead of being a goddamn victim who thinks that it's someone else's problem, or that the problem is so huge that there's no point in starting, let's make a fucking impact.
Below are some of the causes we support explicitly, but there are SO many good causes that deserve your attention and support. If you're not making someone else's life better, then you're wasting your time. Help Willpower Entertainment fight for truth and justice, and give generously so that others may live.
Causes That We Support
---> Donate to Kiva <---
Kiva Microfunds is a non-profit organization that allows people to lend money via the Internet to people in 67 countries through Kiva's 190 partner microfinance institutions, which Kiva calls field partners. Kiva includes personal stories of each person who needs a loan because they want their lenders to connect with their entrepreneurs on a human level. Kiva itself does not collect any interest on the loans it facilitates. It is purely supported by grants, loans, and donations from its users, corporations, and national institutions.
---> Donate to Doctors Without Borders <---
Doctors Without Borders is based on the humanitarian principles of medical ethics and impartiality. The organization is committed to bringing quality medical care to people in crisis regardless of their race, religion, or political affiliation. For every dollar that comes in to DWB, a full 86 cents goes to their relief efforts. By law, only 25% of their donations have to serve their mandate, but DWB spends just 1.3% of it's income on administrative costs and about 12% on fundraising costs. The rest goes to providing medical care and food to populations devastated by natural disaster, civil war, disease and malnutrition.
---> Donate to the Heart and Stroke Foundation <---
The Heart and Stroke Foundation of Canada supplies researchers with the funds they need to develop life-saving and life-prolonging strategies and treatments in the battle against heart disease. They have saved so many lives over their history but heart disease ranks among the highest killers in the world today. Tremendous strides have been made, but they still need our help to continue the fight. They have done so much for us, so Willpower Entertainment encourages you to support their efforts by giving generously. Donate today!
