Burnlounge Helps Global Relief Effort

BurnLounge Helps World Vision Promote Global Relief Efforts Through Digital Music NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--BurnLounge, the world's first community-powered digital music service, announced today that World Vision has joined the BurnLounge retail network to launch its own digital music store.

The World Vision Artist Association BurnLounge Store will primarily feature three hundred artists in the BurnLounge catalog that are in partnership with the World Vision organization. Artists featured in the World Vision BurnLounge Store will be able to see their music help some of the most underprivileged children in the world. The World Vision BurnLounge Store also makes it easy for consumers to support the World Vision cause and buy great music at the same time.

"Our organization shares a belief in the power of music to attract, educate and inspire," said Pamela Muse, Director of Artist Associates Program, World Vision. "The BurnLounge platform enables us to help further realize this belief and reach out to our supporters in a new and innovative way."

World Vision also works with artists who promote World Vision child sponsorships and will be providing those artists with Money2Burn Cards to hand out at their concerts. The cards will be given to those who sign on as a sponsor for children in need and can be redeemed for free digital music downloads at the World Vision Artist Association BurnLounge Store.

"I have always been touched by the way music can inspire emotions and charitable giving," said Ryan Dadd, Co-founder, President and Chief Operating Officer of BurnLounge. "World Vision is reaching out to music lovers who want to help support efforts to build a better world for children and we are honored that we can provide the platform to make this possible."

Through BurnLounge's proprietary software, music fans can use point-and-click technology to build their own fully functioning digital download store. These stores cannot only sell the music they love, but will also allow visitors access to a vast catalog of nearly two million titles from all of the major labels and hundreds of independents and unsigned artists. By allowing highly motivated fans to benefit from recommending their favorite music, BurnLounge aims to revolutionize the way entertainment products are marketed. BurnLounge is designed to provide a fun and exciting experience whether you're looking for a fun and sustainable hobby or a serious business.
