Everyone's help needed!
Sorry this is slightly off topic, but I'm hoping being a fellow educator you all might be able to help.
This week we are releasing a song into the charts recorded by our Staff and Students in memory of one of our students, Ellie Othick-Bowmaker who we sadly lost on Valentine's Day this year to two brain tumours. During her three year battle with the brain tumours she raised over £25,000 for charity. Her mum, Heather Othick is carrying on Ellie's work under Ellie's Fund.
We want to try and get our song into the charts as a fitting tribute to Ellie, and to help raise funds and awareness of childhood brain tumours (the most underfunded of the cancer charities).
I was wondering if anyone would be able and willing to email their staff and/or students asking them to watch out music video on youtube YouTube - Somewhere Over The Rainbow / Wonderful World - Scalby School Staff & Students
and if they felt moved by the video to purchase our song on Amazon or iTunes for just 79p (every single penny goes to Ellie's Fund). The link to amazon is:
Somewhere Over The Rainbow / Wonderful World: Scalby School Staff & Students: Amazon.co.uk: MP3 Downloads
We have posters, desktop wallpapers and all sorts of other things available if anyone is able to help us? We're currently 18 in amazon's charts so it's promising but alot more work to do yet! If you are able to help and need any more infor please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org or message me on here.
Maybe if you have staff/student email you could send the link out? Or put a few posters up around the school? Or we've found the video really useful in tutor time to give the students something to reflect on.
A facebook page might get this launched for you too! Good luck :)

Have spread the word as best I can to those I know. Wonderful song, and some really talented singers in your school.
Best of luck, and hope to see you at #1!
We currently have a girl with a brain tumour. Things seem to be looking good for her at the moment. Will see what i can do!
I like what you're trying to achieve with this, we'll do whatever we can to promote it.
All the best as you continue towards your goal!
Update- Have purchased the song from Amazon, would have bought a few copies (y'know..in case one didnt work)
Sadly quantity was restricted to 1, however we'll be spreading the word for this and the other solid charity efforts being made by members on t'geek
Just bought it and I hope thousands more people do as well.
Yeh it's a bit annoying that, we've been asking everyone to go through the checkout again to buy another copy! You can actually buy 3 before the charts company will smell a rat!

Bought it and will spread the word
Done and done. What an inspiring girl Ellie was and what a smile! I loved this song, listened to it with lump in throat. Good luck with the fundraising.
Thanks everyone for your support, we really appreciate it! We're still a bit off charting as things stand so it's big final push time! We really hope it charts as it will increase awareness massively for the charity (which is the least funded charity of all of the cancers)
Thanks again and keep spread the word as you can :)
Bought it! Hope you make it into the charts!
Amazing girl, I've bought it also, brings a tear to your eye SO brave!
