“MY CAUSE” WEB FEATURE THEME FOR JUNE IS “ST. JUDE CHILDREN’S RESEARCH HOSPITAL”

06/06/2012

WEB FEATURE AVAILABLE ON ACMLIFTINGLIVES.ORG STARTING TODAY

 

Encino, CA (June 6, 2012) – ACM Lifting Lives® announced today that the June theme for its monthly “My Cause” web feature is “St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital.”  The web feature drives awareness of artist-supported charitable organizations and supports fundraising efforts for those philanthropies.

 

ACM Lifting Lives repeated the My Cause opportunity in 2012 by encouraging artists to speak on camera about their favorite charities at the 2012 ACM Awards.  My Cause is a way for ACM Lifting Lives to tangibly demonstrate the Academy’s support of country music artists.  Many people have been helped by these fantastic charities, and ACM Lifting Lives bolsters that support by increasing awareness and funding for these very deserving causes.  Over the past two years, ACM Lifting Lives has donated more than $45,000.00 to artists’ favorite charities through this program, and will again make donations in addition to driving fan awareness.

 

This month, “My Cause: St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital” is highlighting the organization that works to advance cures, and means of prevention, for pediatric catastrophic diseases through research and treatment. Donations can be made to the charity using a donate link available with the video.  

 

Below are the artists included in the June “St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital” feature:

Eli Young Band

Chris Young
