Song for Console
Sean Mythen has written and produced a song ‘Life’s Song’ which can be bought online with all proceeds going to Console. Sean hopes to raise €5,000. Console is a nationwide suicide prevention, intervention and gives support and counselling to those in crisis. This is obviously a very deserving and necessary project and can do with all the support we can give it.
You can buy the song online using a credit card and it’s quite simple. Go to Sean's website
and scroll down to the bottom of the homepage and you will be brought to CDbaby where you can buy the song for 99cents. Well done Sean and best of luck with this worthy initiative.
