Am I Collective, Andrew Bannecker, ilovedust, and Kai & Sunny Celebrate More Birthdays with the American Cancer Society
The American Cancer Society and The Martin Agency team up with artists and musicians for their "More Birthdays" movement, because "A world with less cancer is a world with more birthdays." Artists were given uplifting facts in the fight against cancer to use as inspiration for new work. Musicians recorded their own version of the song "Happy Birthday" especially for the American Cancer Society. People who visit morebirthdays.com can purchase custom art, send personalized music videos, or send an art e-card with a special birthday message.
Artists invited to join the movement include Am I Collective, Andrew Bannecker, ilovedust, and Kai & Sunny. Musicians Justin Bieber, Maroon 5, Devo, and Colbi Caillat also lent their support.
