THE STORY:

Hi! I'm Aerynn. 

Below you can read a note about the Starfish Project; here is my connection:

About 6 years ago, I had the pleasure of hearing a talk by Jenny McGee, and hearing music by her husband Doug.  I also had multiple friends who were Advocates for Starfish Project, and one friend who moved overseas as a Starfish employee for a few years. 

I'm a singer-songwriter living in the UK, and for the 30-day fundraiser, I'm forwarding any CD and digital download earnings to the Starfish Project Expansion Campaign.  My music is available in the USA and the UK, via www.aerynn.com

Earnings from my street performances will also go toward this campaign.  Very excited to be part of the team!!!  Please donate directly, if you feel so moved.

Love,

aerynn
