Day 22: Do They Know It's Christmas?

Do They Know It's Christmas? is a song written by Bob Geldof and Midge Ure in 1984 to raise money for famine relief in Africa.

Sadly, while it's now been 25 years since the original recording, we still have a long way to go to eradicate poverty, malnourishment, and disease.

If it's been a while since you've heard this, or if the song is new to you, have a listen:
