David Shaw & Tonya Campos Launch 'Give More After 24' Campaign

RIDE RECORDS VP/Promotion DAVID SHAW and MT. WILSON BROADCASTING Country KKGO/LOS ANGELES PD TONYA CAMPOS have teamed up to launch GIVE MORE AFTER 24, a campaign to raise awareness of the importance of giving to those less fortunate.
GIVE MORE AFTER 24 was designed to promote and support 24 different charities at a time in order to bring awareness to the various causes they represent. GIVE MORE AFTER 24 asks visitors to their website to give up one thing for 24 hours and donate the money saved, preferably $24 or more, to the website they are moved to give to.
CAMPOS created this concept after a trip to NICARAGUA to visit the children she sponsors and found that they had not eaten in 24 hours. She knew that if others had witnessed this event they would have been quick to donate. Starting DECEMBER 24th, CAMPOS began her initiative of fasting every 24th of every month in order to bring awareness to this campaign.
SHAW heard of the idea and immediately started to work on the project and along with TONYA was eager to be able to “give back to those less fortunate.”
GIVE MORE AFTER 24’s first donation was given at the holiday event of the LOS ANGELES MISSION on DECEMBER 24th. In a coast to coast effort, DAVID also donated his efforts to the BOSTON RESCUE MISSION on DECEMBER 24th. He also fasted along with TONYA for the entire 24 hours.
