Blind Items Revealed #2 - Reader Blind Item - Kindness

November 2, 2019

This foreign band that reunited not too long ago after a long lay-off has a deep history of activism and organizing for charity, helping the downtrodden, the natural world, stopping war, you name it. The peak of their success came several decades ago with some international hits and accompanying records.

They are most famous for the striking physical appearance and stage presence of their lead singer who has his own history of activism and charitable advocacy and even served in a political office in their home country.

Since their reunion, in between tours, the band has done a number of charity concerts including putting together one for this very large natural wonder in their home country, raising funds to prevent further destruction to it.

One charitable project they are working on which is not public knowledge yet involves purchasing land to set aside for this very marginalized group in their native country who was the inspiration for some of their most successful music.  They tried this before many years ago but couldn’t make it come together. Now they are older and wiser and better financed and it is all but done. Look for an announcement on this around the middle of next year.

Band - Midnight Oil, Singer - Peter Garrett, Natural Wonder - Great Barrier Reef, Group - Aborigines

After they took away the Australians' guns I was surprised the Aborigines didn't just take their land back.
