Such diverse celebrities as Jerry Springer and ‘Captain America’ actress Hayley Atwell are supporting the cause to change children’s lives through rock music through the fundraiser, Rock For The Children. One of the leading spotlights for the fundraiser is the newly released video for We Are The Catalyst’s rock-metal cover of the popular Swedish House Mafia track, ‘Don’t You Worry Child.’ The internationally renowned talk show host has praised the Swedish alternative metal band’s song, describing it as an “incredible rock video” that’s aimed at raising funds for fostering charities all over the world. The video offers an unprecedented insight into the darker side of a broken home, and the horrific struggle many children face on a daily basis.

All of the profits from the global sales of the ‘Don’t You Worry Child’ single, as well as the video, which is now live on YouTube, will benefit The Fostering Network. As the UK’s leading fostering charity, The Fostering Network works with over 400 fostering services and 52,500 foster carers. The company helps the 63,000 children in foster care on any one day to achieve the very best they can. Passionate about foster care and the difference it makes, The Fostering Network is dedicated to creating a better future for everyone who is fostered. More information on the efforts The Fostering Network takes to help protect children in foster care can be found on the company’s official website.

On the release of We The Catalyst’s ‘Don’t You Worry Child’ single and video, Tony Round, Head of Fundraising for The Fostering Network, said “The children who come into care have all too often experienced neglect and abuse, or witnessed domestic violence or substance misuse. The Fostering Network has worked hard for the past 40 years to ensure that these children can experience love, support and stability in a foster family. We are delighted to have been chosen as the charity receiving funds raised through Rock for the Children. We thank We Are The Catalyst for shining a huge spotlight on foster care and the amazing work that foster carers do around the world through the release of ‘Don’t You Worry Child.'”

Kenny Boufadene, the guitarist and co vocalist for We Are The Catalyst, was equally as appreciative of the public’s backing for the fundraiser. “A lot of people are also supporting Rock For The Children, by sending us Index Finger Smiley Selfies. They are simple smiley faces drawn on the index finger, but it signifies how a simple #OneClick (downloading the single) can literally change a child’s life forever.”

‘Don’t You Worry Child’ is a blunt assessment of the heartbreaking truths surrounding child abuse in the world and the steps that everyone can take to help end this terrible affliction. The video begins with a sincere address by Springer, who asks viewers to show their support for “Don’t You Worry Child.’ All profits from the single will go to The Fostering Network and helping children in need find loving homes.
