The Skydancer Project is an international charity campaign that Byron Bay artist In Hearts Wake have set up in order to raise funds for three grassroots, non-profit organizations.
The band is giving away their new single "Skydancer" on a pay-what-you-want system, with all proceeds from the single to be split between three non-profits: Red Dust, Hardcore Help and Seventh Generation fund.

The inspiration behind "Skydancer" is a little more complex than your average single. In an effort to create awareness and raise money for the less privileged, In Hearts Wake have put together a video and short documentary about the plight of the Native American people and other indigenous cultures in today's fast moving world.
The track itself was inspired by a documentary about Native American ironworkers contracted to build the skyscrapers in New York City, one of the most dangerous jobs in the world.
"Skydancer" is available for download with 100% of all money raised going directly to those three grassroots groups that support native populations and sustainability within their communities. The organizations affiliated with the project are Seventh Generation Fund For Indigenous Peoples in North America, Germany's Hardcore Help that focuses on Africa, and Australia's own Red Dust.
The fundraising ends on November 3.
