WWF has welcomed the release of an acoustic version of Kirsty Bertarelli's song “Green”, the proceeds of which are destined to support WWF conservation projects around the world.
Gland, Switzerland – Global conservation organization WWF has welcomed the release of an acoustic version of Kirsty Bertarelli's song “Green”, the proceeds of which are destined to support WWF conservation projects around the world.
Kirsty Bertarelli was inspired to produce an acoustic version of Green after she performed live at WWF's 50th anniversary Panda Ball last year.
“It was such an honour to be a guest at WWF's Panda Ball. I performed a special acoustic version of Green and decided to dedicate this new version to WWF's cause”, said Kirsty.
The lyrics of “Green” talk about the destruction of the environment and were influenced by Kirsty's experience of the issue, as well as of how much the next generation care about being the custodians of our planet.
“Kirsty Bertarelli's gesture of donating the proceeds of her song Green to WWF's vital conservation projects around the world is a generous symbol of her commitment to the environment”, said Jim Leape, Director General of WWF International.
Net proceeds from iTunes downloads of the acoustic version of Green will be donated to WWF.
