Jack Johnson will tour North America this summer and give 100% of the profits to charity.
The singer will kick off a 34-date tour in Connecticut on July 9 in support of his new album, To The Sea, and will donate proceeds to charity through his All At Once Campaign. Charities to benefit will include the Kokua Hawaii Foundation – which supports environmental education in the schools and communities of Hawaii – and the Johnson Ohana Charitable Foundation, which matches fans’ donations to the local charities featured in the Village Green area at each of his shows (up to $2500 per concert).
The singer has also announced that once again the tour will be green, and will utilize biodiesel for all tour vehicles, reduced waste and carbon emissions, water refill stations, and eco-friendly merchandise.
Johnson is well known for his eco-tours, and incorporates a Village Green into each show, where fans can learn about local charities. LookToTheStars.org co-founder Myrlia Purcell volunteered to work at the Village Green in 2008 – to read her report, click here.
