DJ Rising has joined forces with a great non-profit organization called “Got Kidney?” and will be donating all proceeds from the soundtrack to help promote organ donor awareness.
ABOUT “GOT KIDNEY?”
In December of 2008, DJ RasCue was diagnosed with Chronic Renal Failure (kidney disease). On May 20, 2009 Hip Hop(e) for Healing co-founder Aaron Lazansky (DJ SpazeCraft) successfully donated a kidney to his girlfriend of two years who had been battling chronic kidney disease. Throughout their own personal struggles with this illness, these three saw a great need to not only offer aid to those currently afflicted with kidney disease, but also to educate the general public about organ donation.
Propelled into action, RasCue created the “Got Kidney?” foundation and Lazansky founded the Hip Hop(e) for Healing Project. Both organizations use their ties to the worldwide music industry, generating funds to raise awareness about the importance of organ donor registration and healthy lifestyle strategies for those living in marginalized urban communities.
All involved look forward to a memorable experience for music lovers, as well as, a unique opportunity to educate the public on health and wellness issues that affect us all. Your donation could help speak to the next generation of youth on healthy living choices and disease prevention.
