Lifestyle: Buy a book to help Greece Wildfires Relief Fund

From today through August 31st, all proceeds from purchases of the book Olympian Passion, by Andrya Bailey, both e-book and paperback version, will be donated to the Greece Wildfire Relief Campaign on gofundme:

This campaign is hosted by the Hellenic American Leadership Council (HALC) and Chicago Sister Cities International - Athens Committee. Both HALC and the Athens Committee are official, registered American non-profits. HALC has launched several relief and fundraising campaigns for the people of Greece before. We have close contacts with the government, with non-profit organizations across the country and with community leaders. We have an excellent track record of accountability, transparency and will make all fund disbursements public. HALC and the Athens Committee are not retaining a single cent of any funds raised: all funds will be distributed directly to help the people of Greece.

WHERE WILL THE FUNDS GO? 
HALC works with registered, vetted nonprofits and other organizations that have a clear record of transparency, accountability and effectiveness. We are in the process of continuing our vetting but at the moment, 100% of funds raised will be directly distributed to the following vetted, approved organizations:

* Hellenic Red Cross (Ελληνικός Ερυθρός Σταυρός)
This organization is providing direct, urgent emergency relief to those affected, such as first aid, shelter, and more.

* SOS Children's Village Greece (Παιδικά Χωριά SOS Ελλάδος) 
This organization provides support services to children. At least 23 children have been injured by the fires, some in critical condition. We will distribute funds directly for any medical care, feeding of displaced families, housing of displaced families or care for orphaned children.

As your donations are dispersed, we will provide a full accounting of where the funds were distributed and how your donation helped.

Olympian Passion is the first book in the Olympian trilogy, by romance author Andrya Bailey. It is the recipient of Readers' Favorite 5-star seal and 2016 New Apple Literary Medalist Winner in Contemporary Romance.

Sabrina loves everything about Greek mythology and can't believe when she's accepted for an internship at the Fine Arts Museum in Houston. There, she meets the handsome Greek archaeologist Nikos Soulis, who will spend two months at the museum, and she falls head over heels for him. But the sexy professor seems too busy and already spoken for... so why does he insist on helping her with her project? Can Sabrina avoid heartbreak when she is seduced by the hot Olympian-looking god of her dreams?

"A great romance that does justice to the mythological theme."

Music: Interview with Canadian artist and musician The Feasting

We've had the pleasure of interviewing a new artist from Canada. Check out what he has to say about his music!

Please tell us a little about your background and where you are from.
I'm 26 years old, from Ontario, Canada, a small town called Exeter. I've been making all types of different music since I was 14 years old, playing in bands and solo acts as well.

What made you fall in love with music and play?
The feeling when you write a song and show some people, and they dig it and just the feeling I get from making music.

Who was your greatest influence to follow in the music career? Why?
My mom and grandmother, who bought me my first electric guitar.

How nice! What is your favorite musical genre and why?
I like all types of music other than country, and I like rap, metal and punk as well. 

When was the first time you performed live and how did you feel?
When I was 15, I performed in a band called Damage Remains at a big birthday bash for my drummer's mom.

Is there a specific performance you feel was your best so far? If so, where and why? 
A live show in an apartment building with my last band Terror Slug. We have been played on radio stations in the United Kingdom , Scotland, and Japan.

That's exciting! What do you enjoy the most about your interaction with the fans?
The pure joy that people get from listening to music.

Music does inspire, so how do you draw inspiration to write your music? 
I listen to music I enjoy and then find the perfect beat for the lyrics, or just writing down lyrics sometimes gives you great ideas.

What are you working on now and what are your plans for the future?
I just released a 4 track EP called Wilderness. I also dropped a new freestyle track before I start working on the album cover for my first full album which is half done as we speak. Just a few more tracks left and will be released.

Is there anything else you'd like to add?
Believe in yourself because anything is possible if you put your mind to it.

Great advice! To find more about his music, check out: www.soundcloud.com/thefeasting
