The Gift of Life

Recommended Posts

Hi all

been a bit heads down on a few projects recently and I thought I would share this one with you.

About a year ago a friend of mine had a baby daughter who was delivered several weeks premature. It quickly became apparent that all was not well and due to a very rare condition baby Lottie needed a new liver. When it looked like it was not going to end well a donor was found and Lottie became the youngest recpipient of a liver transplant in history. more on the story here

A year has now passed an Lottie is doing well and has just celebrated her first birthday.

One of Lottie's parents friends wrote a song as a personal gift to them which we have taken, had produced in our studio by Richard "Digby" Smith (of Led Zeplin, Bob Marley and Traffic fame), and released as a single to raise money for a number of charities and to raise awareness of shortage of organ donors. The single is available to download from iTunes and Amazon and you can watch the video and hear the song on You Tube here

The BBC are covering the story and you can see the report on the making of the song here

You may need a tissue depending on how much of a softy you are.....we keep a box standing by.

Any support, interest or feedback is welcomed.

Thanks Darryl

The transplant took place at the Birmingham Childrens hospital and that is one of the charities that are being supported by the project so will keep you posted and will pass your offer on to Chris and Julie.
