“MY CAUSE” WEB FEATURE THEME FOR AUGUST IS ZAC BROWN’S “CAMP SOUTHERN GROUND”

WEB FEATURE AVAILABLE ON ACMLIFTINGLIVES.ORG STARTING TODAY

 

Encino, CA (August 13, 2012) – ACM Lifting Lives® announced today that the August theme for its monthly “My Cause” web feature is “Camp Southern Ground.” 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: Camp Southern Ground” is highlighting the charity organization that Zac Brown was inspired to create based on his experiences growing up as a camp counselor. The camp encompasses 500 acres of farmland in Brown’s home state of Georgia. Camp Southern Ground’s mission is to allow children to overcome academic, social and emotional difficulties and to provide them with the opportunity and tools necessary to achieve excellence in all facets of their lives. The state‐ofthe‐ art camp is set to open in spring 2015. Donations can be made to the charity using a donate link available with the video.
