January 20th 2010 | Provide needs to be for sale

Karen Bliss from SamaritanMag thinks the song 'Provide'
needs to be for sale in order to help the charity Spread The Net
to fight malaria and so do we.

One of the best new songs not on Ian Thornleyís latest album,
Tiny Pictures, is a track he recorded to help raise awareness
for the charity Spread The Net. 'Provide', for which the Toronto
rock singer-guitarist also made a video, directly addresses
the issue of malaria-carrying mosquitoes in Africa
and how a simple bed net can save lives...
