The Stephen Lewis Foundation has been challenging Canadians to dare themselves into acts of bravery and resourcefulness for the last three years as part of its Dare Campaign to raise funds for the fight against AIDS in sub-Saharan Africa.
This month, Great Big Sea member Murray Foster is rising to the occasion by daring himself to write and record a new song every day until the end of January. Anyone who wants to hear the songs can make their own donation to Foster’s 30 Songs in 30 Days Dare Page on the Stephen Lewis Foundation’s website.
The Dare campaign was launched as a recognition of the courage and ingenuity required for those living with AIDS in Africa to go about their daily lives. It asks Canadians to try conquering their own fears by signing up for an activity they would never otherwise do, and seeking sponsors to help them go through with it (and raise money in the process).
