The single will debut on iTunes on January 14. Each purchase will help provide medicine and supplies for millions of people still suffering after Typhoon Haiyan. In a press release, Jeremy talked about the story behind the song, saying, "This song is about finding the strength for a new beginning, no matter how hard it might be."
Virginia-based NGO Project HOPE has been deploying medical volunteers to remote Panay Island in the Western Visayas region and the Camotes Islands surrounding Cebu in the Philippines. Project HOPE has also delivered over $2.3 million in donated medicines, generators, First Aid kits, and surgical equipment. The NGO is operating in typhoon-hit areas still struggling without electricity and running water. Every penny will go to help with those efforts.
John P. Howe III, President and CEO of Project HOPE, talked about Jeremy's generous heart. He said, "We are honored to have Jeremy's generous and heartfelt support. Jeremy is truly delivering hope through his lyrics and support of HOPE volunteers who are providing lifesaving care for the people of the Philippines. There's still much work to be done in the Philippines to rebuild health facilities and strengthen communities devastated by this epic disaster."
