Singer challenges Rotary clubs

Singer songwriter, Lance King has come to the aid of parents faced with a diagnosis their child will be born with severe special needs.

Singer-songwriter Lance King is challenging Canadians and Rotarians alike to fundraise money for special needs awareness.

Singer songwriter, Lance King has come to the aid of a crowdfunding campaign aimed at helping parents faced with a diagnosis their child will be born with Down syndrome or other severe special needs.

As the father of an adult child with Down syndrome, Lance is keenly aware that a special needs diagnosis does not mean life is over, and instead can be the beginning of a Brand New Sunny Day. For every time Lance’s song Brand New Sunny Day is played on the radio, he will contribute $5 toward the Options of the Heart campaign (up to $500).  He hopes this song, dedicated to people living with disabilities, will become the anthem for this campaign and others championing the cause of people living with special needs.

Please call your local radio station and request Brand New Sunny Day. Then go to Lance’s Facebook page to let us know in the comments which station played Brand New Sunny Day. Only verified plays will count, so be sure to let us know which stations to contact for verification.

In addition to challenging Canadians across the country to request his song, Lance is challenging fellow Rotarians to meet his donation goal of $500 to create a Brand New Sunny Day for children with special needs. Specific ways the money will be spent are detailed on Gofundme.

To donate to the Options of the Heart crowdfunding campaign please go to https://www.gofundme.com/vjwads.

The Options of the Heart aims to raise $29,000 to fund a public awareness campaign about adoption for special needs children.  special needs.
