Essential Advent Calendar: Jedward – ‘Leave A Mark’

You might wonder how ‘Leave A Mark’ is our 6th door of Advent. Well, this year it’s the charity song for ALONE Ireland, for whom Jedward are the Christmas ambassadors.

ALONE highlights the isolation and loneliness sometimes felt by the elderly. Edward said,

“We think that it’s a really important cause and that everyone should take some time to look out for older people in their community. We encourage everyone to spread the Christmas cheer by sharing your presence, which is the most important gift of all”.

People in Ireland can take an #Elfie4ALONE by texting ALONE to 50300, to donate €4.

All proceeds from Jedward’s single, ‘Leave A Mark’, will go to ALONE. Donations from outside Ireland can be made via their website, with 100% going to their front line services.

About the author

There’s a lot of music out there - good music. At Essentially Pop our remit is that we cover music that deserves to be heard, with a particular focus on independent artists. That doesn't mean we won't cover your old favourites - rather we hope to give you some new favourites as well.

We no longer accept unpaid PR agency work. We believe the creative arts have value, and this includes writing. As always, we will write about artists who contact us - or who we contact - for free - but we can no longer work free of charge for PR agencies. We work hard, we put in a lot of hours writing, and we ask that you respect that. Contact us for our very reasonable rates.
