In the spirit of the holiday season Glee will donate 100% of the net monies from the sales of their version of Band Aid's 1984 hit "Do They Know It's Christmas?" to The Band Aid Trust (www.bandaid.org.uk)
. The Band Aid Trust, a registered British charity since 1985, has raised in excess of 190 million dollars to support projects designed to make a lasting difference in Ethiopia, Somalia and surrounding countries in East Africa. This includes the construction of schools, hospitals, boreholes, wells, rain-water harvesting facilities and latrines, as well as food security, hygiene, sanitation, livelihood diversification and income generating activities, training in-country for teachers, doctors and nurses, assistance for those living with HIV/AIDS, and emergency interventions such as nutrition screening programs, seed and animal distribution and the procurement of emergency food aid to treat severely malnourished children and adults...
Seasons on the Terrace was inspired by the design and beauty of Central Park, and the Conservancy's 30-year role in bringing this national treasure back from a devastating decline. The installation was created with digital mapping – a process that matches 3-D points to a 2-D plane. That 2-D plane was Bethesda Terrace – located, appropriately, in the heart of Central Park. Narrated by Kevin Bacon with musical selections from Sting's Symphonicities, this digital artwork lets Central Park admirers from around the globe enjoy its colorful spring blooms, green summer lawns, rust-colored fall foliage and snowy winter landscapes – all without traveling an inch.
