All the proceeds for the EP & the LP go to Tyndale St.Georges which is a
Community Centre in Little Burgundy in the heart of Montreal. An area which
has gone through some difficulties with gang-related incidences which has
overshadowed the productive work of the Community Centre. The After School
program at TSG has been in existence for over 77 years which might be the
longest running After School program on this continent.
Dans les mots d'Andy: "I've had the pleasure of being the Educational
Co-ordinator for 2 years due to a leave of absense of their well known
Director Kim Kidder. It gives me great pleasure to give back to a Community
that has welcomed me with open arms. I'm also delighted in seeing how far i
can push the envelope in terms of developing their educational resources in
terms of admissions to some of Montreal's famous Private Schools for Higher
Learning. This sort of development is integral in making the young ones in
the community realize the importance of these rare resources. So with your
help and understanding i can further the work in determining a place for
some of the individuals in this community."
