Encino, CA (January 10, 2013) – ACM Lifting Lives® announced today that the January “My Cause” web feature will spotlight Miranda Lambert and her charity organization, Muttnation Foundation.  The web feature drives awareness of artist-supported charitable organizations and supports fundraising efforts for those philanthropies.

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: Muttnation Foundation” highlights a foundation started by Miranda Lambert to support other organizations whose purpose is to build animal shelters for better care, increase pet adoption, encourage responsible pet guardianship, rehabilitate sick or unsocialized animals, fund spay/neuter programs, reduce euthanasia of healthy animals and train shelter dogs for purposes of therapy programs, assistance for wounded military personnel and dogs-in-prisons programs.  Donations can be made to the charity using a donate link available with the video.
