Musicnotes.com to Again Donate $1 Per Patriotic Download to "Honor Flight" Program for America's Veterans
MADISON, WI - May 25, 2012 - Musicnotes.com, the worldwide leader in downloadable sheet music, announced today that it is again donating $1.00 per purchased download of patriotic music to the Honor Flight program honoring our nation's veterans with a focus on World War II veterans. In 2011 Musicnotes contributed over $6,000 to Honor Flight. This year's promotion began on May 20th and will run through July 4th - Musicnotes' peak selling season for patriotic sheet music.
Honor Flight Network is a non-profit organization created solely to honor America's war veterans. Honor Flight programs around the country transport veterans to Washington, D.C. to visit and reflect at their memorials. Priority is given to World War II veterans along with veterans from any war that may be terminally ill. Recent numbers indicate approximately 900 World War II veterans die each day, and for these veterans, time is of the essence.
"Musicnotes is again honored and humbled to support Honor Flight in 2012," said Musicnotes Chairman Tim Reiland. "We hear many moving stories about how meaningful this experience is for our veterans and their families, as well as for volunteers and all involved."
As in 2011, proceeds from the promotion will be shared between Badger Honor Flight in Madison, WI where Musicnotes is headquartered, and Stars and Stripes Honor Flight in Milwaukee, WI. Musicnotes also encourages its 140,000 daily visitors to contribute, providing a link to the national Honor Flight site where people can indicate a specific Honor Flight program to support if they wish http://www.honorflight.org/donate/
Hundreds of patriotic sheet music downloads will be sold each day during the Memorial Day through July 4th timeframe at Musicnotes.com. Top selling patriotic titles include "God Bless America," "The Star Spangled Banner," "America The Beautiful" and many others including Musicnotes' own choral arrangement of "The Armed Forces Medley."
