Get Upset – A Response

This from a student named Jesse at Wesleyan University. Connect your wallets to your hearts.
I thought you would want to know about a project put together by a bunch of Wesleyan University seniors to raise money for the victims of the genocide in Darfur.  “ASAP: the Afrobeat Sudan Aid Project” is a compilation of mostly modern-day Afrobeat tracks (except for a classic Tony Allen track featuring Fela himself!) by artists from around the globe, who all donated their material to the project, which was sponsored initially by non-profit TrueMajority.org (founded by Ben Cohen).  The project has already raised over $100,000 for an Oxfam-affiliated charity based locally in Darfur to assist refugees with food, water, medicine, and shelter. You can order the CD online from the website: www.modiba.net.
