Abigail Washburn's Project to Benefit Earthquake Victims

From her newsletter of May 9, 2009:

Hello All! Yesterday I was featured on NPR’s All Things Considered with Melissa Block alongside my Afterquake co-producer Dave Liang of the Shanghai Restoration Project.

Dave and I have been working around the clock to bring you a multi-media website with loads of information about Afterquake and the students and families that participated in the project. You will see amazing photos from Amanda Kowalski and a 'making of' video by Luke Mines as well as comprehensive translations of interviews, lyrics and more. Please check it out and pass along the link to those you think will be interested.

As a result of the interview on NPR, today we have charted at #1 for a moment on Amazon and now are shooting for the same on i-tunes. Charting will help us get more press so I am writing to encourage you to go to our website, amazon or i-tunes to purchase physical copies or downloads of the 7 song EP. A significant portion of profits will go back to Sichuan Quake Relief (SQR), a wonderful organization taking care of the most pressing needs in the earthquake disaster zone. SQR was also our partner in field production on the ground in Sichuan this March.
