From the revolutionary minds of Pixar Animation Studios and the acclaimed director of MONSTERS, INC. comes a hilarious uplifting adventure where the sky is no longer the limit.
Carl Fredicksen, a retired balloon salesman, is part rascal, part dreamer who is ready for his last chance at high-flying excitement. Tying thousands of balloons to his house, Carl sets off to the lost world of his childhood dreams. Unbeknownst to Carl, Russell, an overeager 8-year old Wildnerness Explorer who has never ventured beyond his backyard, is in the wrong place at the wrong time - Carl's front porch! The world's most unlikely duo reach new heights and meets fantastic friends like Dug, a dog with a special collar that allows him to speak, and Kevin, the rare 13-foot tall flightless bird. Stuck together in the wilds of the jungle, Carl realizes that sometimes life's biggest adventures aren't the ones you set out for.

So basically there is a song now on iTunes by a band called ChartJackers. They are a YouTube band meaning that the people in the band are "professional" YouTubers. They decided to make a song and the money will go straight to charity. The charity is called "Children in Need" and it is in England.
I know that it is a totally cheesy song and definitely not most people's style but seriously when it comes to charity I think you can afford to buy a song for 99 cents.
The band is called ChartJackers because they literally want to hijack the charts. By making this song more and more popular their aim is to reach no.1 on the British charts. The reasons they want to do this are:
1.to raise money for charity
2.to show what good things can happen if the internet community unites and works together. Imagine if we, youtubers, facebookers, myspacers, bloggers etc managed to control what the no.1 single in the charts is instead of the music industry! Wouldn’t that be amazing?
The song is called “I’ve Got Nothing”.

If you could it would be a great help if you printed out this flyer and put it up in your school, workplace etc.
Thank you so much for your help.
and remember... Every penny goes to charity.

There aren’t many people in the world that I truly respect. Okay I mean there are a few (e.g. Andy Warhol, etc) but I bet I can count them all using the fingers of my two hands. (5+5=10)
Yet there is one person, who will remain nameless, who inspires me in such a way that I feel motivated just by being around him/her (I will interchange the two so as not to reveal the identity of the individual I am talking about). Even when she is standing next to me I feel this flow of energy flowing off of him onto me. Her motivation and devotion to the thing he loves is so astonishingly strong that I believe he should be the role model of the “perfect” student. It’s not that she is just creative, he is also original, something that most people are not nowadays. His artistic side is so alive that if every day was a canvas she would have lifetime worth of portfolio pieces. She is always covered in paint-slash-plaster-slash-glue... He is what I would call a true artist.
One might say “sure she is a great artist but he might have a horrible personality.” Quite the contrary. She is as great a person as he is an artist, which means that she is pretty great. She is a warm-hearted, open-minded person and most of all he understands me and the way I see things. I am nearsighted also.
I am lucky to have met her. She is and always will be one of my closest friends.
