Diane Birch: Discover & Donate

I didn't know anything about Diane Birch until a recent #gno on Twitter and even now I know I still have much to learn about this rising new star in the musical world. Apparently her iTunes Single of the Week "Rise Up" was downloaded over 500,000 times! Bible Belt, her debut album, was released only a few days ago.

Diane's life experiences have made her aware of the great need for charitable work around the world and she's given fans a great way to support a variety of charitable organizations. Through Discover & Donate, Diane has teamed up with S-Curve Records so you can Discover her critically acclaimed album and Donate $1 to charity in the process.

To participate, visit the Discover & Donate page and choose a custom Diane Birch widget from one of six charities: Autism Speaks, March of Dimes, Keep A Child Alive, Share Our Strength, SOS Children’s Villages and Susan G. Komen for the Cure. Then post the widget on your blog, website or social networking page.

Once you've done that tell your friends and family about Diane's new album; for each person that buys the album from either the iTunes or Amazon link through the widget you posted, a $1 donation per album sold will be made in your name. How cool is that!
And get this: whoever raises the most money for charity through their widget by June 23rd will win a free private performance in the winner’s hometown!

What are you doing this weekend? I'm planning on checking out Bible Belt and spreading the word about Discover & Donate. Shouldn't that be on your to-do list too? --Emily
