Jacob Moon Does Benefit for International Justice Mission

Published: 2006-09-22
Folk rock musician Jacob Moon is giving a little back through a benefit concert for the International Justice Mission Canada.

Moon has been making music since the late nineties, with his most recent album Evertide hitting store shelves last year.

Moon learned about the mission after reading a book recommended to him by the executive director of IJM Rev. Jamie McIntosh. Moon describes the IJM as an organization that, "works in countries in South East Asia rescuing bonded slaves, freeing children who are being held in captivity by the sex trade, and settle illegal land claims made against widows in Africa. I'm amazed by what they accomplish through their teams of volunteer lawyers and policemen and women. these people are like superheroes, circumnavigating the globe to fight crime wherever they find it!"

He also encourages his fans to give to all that they can, "be it time, prayer or financial contributions," to the cause. Moon himself is also giving all he can by doing a benefit concert for the organization next month in Hamilton. Joining him will be The Soul Gospel Experience and Chantal Handricks. Tickets to the show are available now through Ticketmaster. Tickets are $20-$25 each.

Here are the details for the benefit show:

October 20, Hamilton, ON - Hamilton Place Studio Theatre
