HMV My Inspiration Calendar
HMV issues limited edition charity calendar of my inspiration
icons‚ Children's cancer charity CLIC Sargent to benefit from
sales of 2009/2010 HMV calendar featuring the inspiration selections
of Paul along with artists such as Dylan, Elvis and other icons.
Music and entertainment specialist HMV is to mark the third
anniversary of its acclaimed my inspiration campaign by featuring
memorable highlights in a charity calendar for 2009/2010. My
inspiration invites iconic and exciting new artists to share with
their fans the song lyric or lines of verse that have inspired them in
their life and in their work. The proceeds of the limited edition
calendar, which has been generously produced for HMV at cost by the
UK's leading calendar manufacturer Danilo, will go to HMV's nominated
charity CLIC Sargent, which cares for children and young adults with
cancer. The calendar comes with two different but equally attractive
covers: a standard version highlighting all the featured artists, and
a special limited edition run featuring Bob Dylan.
Both versions are priced £7.99 and will go on sale in early
September in over 270 HMV stores and can also be ordered online at
hmv.com. Sister company Waterstone's is also a stockist.
HMV Marketing Director, Graham Sim, comments: "We've had an
amazing response to my inspiration from the featured artists,
photographers and, of course, the songwriters. Its success is proof,
if any were needed, of the enduring appeal of music, and reminds us
that songs and even a simple lyric can hold an intensely personal
meaning for us all. We hope that music fans everywhere will enjoy this
calendar, in the knowledge that they are also contributing to our
charity, CLIC Sargent, and we're grateful to everyone that has given
HMV their support in making this possible."
Querida Williams, Head of Corporate Fundraising at CLIC Sargent,
adds: "We are thrilled to be benefiting from HMV's acclaimed my
inspiration campaign. At CLIC Sargent our inspiration is the children
and young adults that we work with. We hope that this year the Icons
calendar will help raise vital funds so we can be there for all
children and young adults with cancer, every step of the way."
