Twelve Princeton-based student choral groups are featured on volumes 1 and 2 of A Princeton Christmas: For the Children of Africa as a way to lift spirits around the world and raise funds to benefit some of the world's neediest children via the World Food Program (WFP), the United Nations' frontline agency for hunger solutions. All proceeds will fund school meals programs in sub-Saharan Africa.

The collection of choral works was produced in conjunction with the Friends of the World Food Program, the U.S.-based organization that supports the work of the WFP.

All proceeds from the purchase of downloads or CDs will go directly to the children of Africa through the WFP. The purchase of one download will feed a child for two days while buying either of the almost hour-long albums will feed a child for more than one month. The music is available online as downloads at iTunes, Amazon MP3, eMusic, and other online stores and as a CD from Amazon, the Princeton University Store, the Princeton Theological Seminary Bookstore, and select Barnes & Noble stores.
