ACM Announces Augustâ€™s â€˜My Causeâ€™ Charities
August 3, 2011 at 9:40 AM (PT)
The ACM (ACADEMY OF COUNTRY MUSIC) announced TODAY (8/3), that the AUGUST theme for its monthly “My Cause,” web feature is “BACK TO SCHOOL.” The web feature drives awareness of artist-supported charitable organizations and supports fundraising efforts for those philanthropies.
“My Cause,” is encouraging artists to speak on camera about their favorite charities. Last year, ACM LIFTING LIVES gave more than $25,000 to artists’ favorite charities through this program, and will again make donations in addition to driving fan awareness.
This month, “BACK TO SCHOOL,” is highlighting a cause that helps improve the lives of children and young adults through education. REPUBLIC NASHVILLE artist MARTINA McBRIDE’s charity LOVE IS RESPECT will be supported this month, along with CAPITOL RECORDS artist DARIUS RUCKER’s foundations PATTISON’S ACADEMY and HOOTIE AND THE BLOWFISH FOUNDATION.
