Former American Idol contestant Clay Aiken is offering a free download of an unreleased song… but is encouraging people to make a charity donation in return.

“Just You” was recorded for his 2006 album A Thousand Different Ways but never used, and now Aiken is using it to raise money for the Bubel/Aiken Foundation, an organization he created to bridge the gap that exists between young people with special needs and the world around them.

“Go ahead…. download the song,” he said. “It’s yours. Share it with your friends. It’s free. But… I want to make it count for someone… so let’s make it count for tens of thousands of children in the US with developmental disabilities. If you can’t afford anything for it… then don’t pay… but… if you can… I encourage you… I ask of you… that you make a donation to the Bubel/Aiken Foundation for how ever much you feel the song is worth. If you want to give $1… great. If you want to give $1000… GREAT… if you can only give $.05 … that’s fine too. It’s a tough time we’re living through nowadays, and non-profits are hurting more than ever as well. BAF (which will soon be known by a different name) has had amazing success in fulfilling it’s mission, and is embarking on a long term plan to continue including kids in every aspect of life. But, it will continue to need help from all of us in order to make that possible.”

“Consider this track a ‘charity recording’… donate whatever you can or whatever you are willing to… and accept our thanks.”
