We extend a warm welcome to Beate Hilker from Germany. She starts her volunteer work in September by distributing Parkinsong CDs near Berlin with German postage of 1,55 € per CD instead of 6,90 € (5,50 € Economy) when posting from Austria to Germany and Switzerland.
That’s a huge saving for buyers on shipping cost to and from Germany and will hopefully boost donations of 15 € for our beautiful CD. Beate’s labour of love is much appreciated. Volunteers in other countries are also more than welcome to join our network.
We keep full transparency and tell you everything that happens with your donations. Towards the end of the 4th quarter 2019, our board will discuss to whom we give the award. Meanwhile, every Cent of your generosity goes into the trust account.
So, if you want to give, order a CD (jetzt kaufen/buy now to your right), or simply transfer any amount directly into the account above. Thank you very much.
Apparently Michael J Fox performed a duet with the great Paul Simon, but unfortunately none of them responded to my enquiries. The only proof is in the picture above, found somewhere on the Fox Foundation’s website without the music. A pity, because I would have loved to listen to them singing together. Could it perhaps go on Volume 2 of Parkinsong Duets?
Stefan Weber (8 November 1946 – 7 June 2018) was an Austrian art teacher and the lead singer and Kapellmeister of the Viennese band Drahdiwaberl. Weber founded the band in 1969 in the wake of the events of 1968. Drahdiwaberl were infamous for their elaborate stage shows which often include bizarre and, as some claim, disgusting elements.
