CAPITOL NASHVILLE group LADY ANTEBELLUM held a press conference in NASHVILLE TODAY (12/3) to launch their new charitable initiative called LADY AID. The effort is designed ‘to and generate support for children in need locally, nationally and globally.’
The aim is to reach children across the state of TENNESSEE through grants to MONROE CARRELL Jr. CHILDREN’S HOSPITAL at VANDERBILT and St. JUDE CHILDREN’S HOSPITAL in MEMPHIS. On a national level, LADY AID is supporting CHILDREN’S MIRACLE NETWORK HOSPITALS and on a global level, MYLIFESPEAKS and The UN REFUGEE AGENCY (UNHCR).
“There are children all over the world who are suffering because they don’t have the resources to get the help they need,” said LADY A’s HILLARY SCOTT. “My heart has specifically been lead to the children of HAITI. By partnering with organizations like UNHCR and CHILDREN’S MIRACLE NETWORK HOSPITALS, we’ve already seen children be given access to medical care they wouldn’t otherwise have in their country. It’s so inspiring, and anything we can do to help that cause, we’re going to do.”
