Legendary UK Dance act Faithless have launched an exciting social media challenge, #PlayItForward, with world-renowned artists & DJs each donating a signed, prized piece of vinyl to create a one-off record collection to be won, whilst raising money for Choose Love/Help Refugees – a charity which supports displaced and vulnerable communities.
During a time in which the sharing of goodwill and kindness is more important than ever before, Faithless created #PlayItForward to unite the music community, whilst helping to give back and support those in need.
Faithless’s Sister Bliss launched #PlayItForward on Instagram Stories by donating a signed copy of Faithless’s ‘Insomnia’ Remixes. Sister Bliss nominated Tim Burgess, Kelly Lee Owens, Frank Carter & The Rattlesnakes, Above & Beyond, Shadow Child, and DJ Fat Tony, who will each donate a signed, precious vinyl record and nominate three other artists to continue #PlayItForward via their own Instagram. These artists will then donate a vinyl record, and each nominate another artist or DJ, which will then continue. This will build to a highly sought-after record collection of ‘money can’t buy’ signed records which one lucky music lover can win, by purchasing a raffle ticket for £5 via faithless.lnk.to/PlayItForwardPR.
All proceeds from the #PlayItForward raffle tickets bought will go to Choose Love/Help Refugees (helprefugees.org/choose-love). All funds raised will be spent on buying urgently needed supplies and services for refugees and displaced people this winter: from warm blankets and winter clothes to medical care and legal support.
Faithless’s Sister Bliss said: “I really hope through the sharing and giving of music we can raise a significant amount to help vulnerable people living in the most difficult conditions imaginable – please choose love.”
