PRLog - April 22, 2012 - PHOENIX -- Phoenix, Ariz. - The world would be a better place if Apple donated those sales to the charities that work so hard to make a positive difference. In fact, the iTunes Store represents only about 4% of Apple’s total revenue stream. Combining its sales of MAC computers, iPods, iPads and their best performer, the iPhone, Apple recently announced that the first three months of 2012 was its best quarter ever, with $46.33 billion in revenue and $13.06 billion in profit. But Apple is simply not going to do something like that, is it? No, and that is why singer-songwriter Scott Helmer is launching the Support YOUR Cause Tour 2012-2013 – to raise one million dollars for good causes.

“I’m hoping that what I do will inspire other artists to do the same. Can you imagine all the people who could be helped if someone like Justin Bieber or a band like Maroon 5 did something like this?” Helmer’s tour is inspired by some of the hard knocks he has experienced in his own life. “I know what it’s like to hit hard times. In the last economic meltdown, I ended up losing everything, including my business and my family,” said Helmer. “There are just going to be times when people, myself included, need a little help to get back on their feet. They need access to the lifeline that so many great organizations offer. But those groups need our support."
Helmer’s debut album, Wake Me When It’s Over, scheduled for release on August 1, 2012, will be made available for free through his website to anyone who donates at least $5 towards the cause of their choice. A free download of the first track, Time To Say Goodbye is available now at http://www.scotthelmer.com/
The music on Wake Me When It’s Over was co-written and co-performed by Scott Helmer (vocals and drums) and his photographer-
