August 22, 2018

There's a local twist to Weezer covering Toto's song "Africa." And we think you ought to know about it.

On their website, Weezer is selling t-shirts that say "Bless The Rains," one of the lines in the song "Africa." (I bless the rains down in Africa
Gonna take some time to do the things we never had."

All profits from sales of the shirt go to Middleton-based "Roots Ethiopia," a non-profit organization that improves schools, enables livelihoods, educates children, and serves special needs students in the most rural region of Ethiopia.

The organization strives to create jobs and boost education in Ethiopia by utilizing ideas that orginate in Ethiopia, and then working together. Because. according to an Ethiopian proverb, “When spider webs unite, they can tie up a lion.”
