Grammy®-nominated NewSong is partnering with Samaritan’s Purse this holiday season to raise funds and awareness for Operation Christmas Child (OCC). All sales on December 4 and 5 of NewSong’s original Christmas song “White As Snow” will go directly to support OCC’s mission to bring shoebox gifts—and the Gospel—to millions of children around the globe annually. “White As Snow” may be purchased at newsongonline.com.
“NewSong has a deep respect for the work of Franklin Graham and Samaritan’s Purse,” said Eddie Carswell, NewSong founding member. “Operation Christmas Child is one of the best efforts we know to bring the real meaning of Christmas to children in need around the world, so it is our privilege to offer our music to help in that endeavor.”
“Operation Christmas Child is thrilled and grateful to be partnering with NewSong to share the true meaning of Christmas and the gospel of Jesus Christ with children all over the world,” said Jeremy Bentley, Assistant Director, Promotions, Operation Christmas Child USA, Samaritan’s Purse.
Written by Eddie Carswell, Russ Lee, Stephen Carswell and Seth Mosley, “White As Snow” is featured on NewSong’s Swallow The Ocean: Christmas Edition digital exclusive.
