Dubai based Colombian Singer/Songwriter Fatiniza has teamed up PADDLE FOR THE PLANET to raise awareness for the marine environment.
When asked how she felt that her song titled ‘Today’ had been chosen to be the theme for Paddle for the Planet, Fatiniza said “My objective is complete. I wrote ‘Today’ specifically with awareness for the environment in mind, hoping that an organization could use it to reach out to the public and encourage them to take action today. I have planted my seed and I am so happy that I can help make a difference in the world through my music”.
Paddle for the Planet has generated interest all around the globe and so far 52 countries will take part in the inaugural event on Sunday June 5th. In Dubai where the project was born, the launch will take place in Jumeirah on Saturday June 4th with hundreds of paddlers heading out around Jumeirah beach Hotel, Burj Al Arab and Madinat Jumeirah.
A preview of ‘Today’ by Fatiniza can be heard and downloaded here. Donations are accepted here and all proceeds will go towards funding the Daram Marine reserve in Raja Ampat, Indonesia, which is the first location for the project.
