Collin Raye Offers Operation Kids Charity Download

(Webster and Assoc) Country music star Collin Raye and Operation Kids have teamed up to offer a "free" download of Collin's new song, "She's With Me," to anyone who donates $5 or more to Operation Kids to help children facing extraordinary medical expenses through their website (http://operationkids.org/collinraye/).

After making the donation online, fans will be directed to click through to a special page where they will be able to download the track before it is available anywhere else. "She's With Me" was recorded for Raye's forthcoming album, Never Going Back (released April 28th on Time Life), and is an intensely personal, poignant song of unconditional love written by Raye for his severely neurologically ill granddaughter. This free download offer will run through May 10th.

Operation Kids is a non-profit organization that matches caring donors with qualified children's charities and programs in the areas of health, education, safety and well-being. Operation Kids seeks to measurably improve the lives of children by identifying charities and programs most effectively addressing key issues.

Operation Kids will reward the metropolitan area that raises the most money during the campaign by contributing a portion of the proceeds to a local children's health charity or program to help children in their own community.

"Operation Kids is an amazing charity in that they benefit SO MANY and in such different circumstances, not just limiting to one thing or another" says Raye. "And the lengths they go to to be accountable, assuring the donors of where the money goes and to whom," he continues, "that in itself makes Operation Kids very special. Through them, so many children are helped. It's a true honor and privilege to be associated with Operation Kids."

"The song deeply touches everyone that hears it and from the beginning we wanted to work with Collin to bring Operation Kids some help for all their great work," said Mike Jason, Time Life Senior Vice President Audio & Video Retail.
