(3BLMedia/theCSRfeed) CHICAGO, ILLINOIS – February 16, 2010 – The zyOzy
Foundation, announced the release of the anticipated Brighter Way Haiti Choir Project video across all social media outlets.

In January, Amy Carol Wolff, an Indiana University graduate student specializing in non-profit management, zyOzy collegiate advisory partner and song composer, issued a call to upon choirs to do an original video recording of her composition “A Brighter Way,” an inspirational, musical “call to action,” which, as Wolff states, “is a powerful statement of rising up, serving and bringing hope to those who need it.”

Wolff conceived the idea of a global choir initiative after family friends miraculously survived and escaped the deadly earthquake, which struck Haiti about a month ago.  By a miracle, they all were found alive.

Five choirs joined the movement, bringing hundreds of young people together for Haiti. The choirs include Uganda Rural Fund Childrens’ Choir, the Crescendo Chorus of Connecticut, the famed Voices of Eve ‘n Angels – the Voena Childrens’ Choir of California, the Pacoima Singers of California, and the PS 22 Chorus of Staten Island, NY.

With the help of Byron Campbell from Firelight Media Group, all of the videos were put together to create a dynamic and inspiring media piece for the people of Haiti and those looking to continue to champion this country’s recovery. You can view the video on the Brighter Way Haiti Choir Citizen Effect project page: http://citizeneffect.org/projects/brighterwaychoir_haitirelief/, where they are accepting donations for CARE’s Haiti Relief efforts on behalf of the project.

Wolff and the zyOzy Foundation team are looking to raise over $30,000 for CARE’s relief effort in Haiti.  “CARE has a long history of work in Haiti and their people are extremely focused on providing for basic needs,” said Dan Morrison, CEO of Citizen Effect, “they are committed to providing water, food and shelter for the people of Haiti.”
