Kitchener, Ont, Canada, September 06, 2007 --(PR.com
)-- Jekyl, the edgy rock/metal band from Kildare, Ireland recently joined forces with Worldview, an international child poverty coalition to shout out a unified message “the insanity of extreme child poverty will no longer be tolerated.”
Jekyl is one of sixteen bands and singer/songwriters from ten countries who have contributed music videos and also recorded their thoughts on child poverty for the new website worldview.ca. Jekyl's video is the ultra high energy “My Time Has Come.”
Site creator Stephen Jarnick says “Jekyl's a fantastic addition to Worldview. Although we connect with the world's major child sponsorship organizations, we select artists that may not traditionally be associated with these charities. If we're going to be serious about involving as many people as possible with child sponsorship, it's important not to focus too much on conservative musical styles. The great thing about Worldview is that we're as comfortable with punk bands as we are with gospel artists. Anyone with a heart for the poor can sponsor a child.”
Jekyl is comprised of Paul Harkin: vocals, Tom Keenan: guitar, Cliff Dean: guitar, Dave Bolger: bass, and Shane Pearson: drums.

It is not a charity and it doesn't accept donations.
