Encino, CA (February 4, 2014) – ACM Lifting Lives® announced today that the February “My Cause” web feature will spotlight American Young and the charity organization, World Vision. 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 $200,000 to artists’ favorite charities through this program, and will again make a donation in addition to driving fan awareness.
This month, “My Cause: World Vision” highlights a Christian humanitarian organization that is dedicated to working with children, families and their communities worldwide to reach their full potential by tackling the causes of poverty and injustice. World Vision works in nearly 100 countries to provide emergency assistance to children and families affected by natural disasters and civil conflict; while working with communities to develop long-term solutions to alleviate poverty and to advocate for justice on behalf of the poor.
