Jack Johnson To Donate Up To $70,000 Toward Gulf Relief Efforts
Through Jack Johnson’s All At Once program, a social action network designed to connect individuals with non-profit organizations in order to take environmental action, Johnson’s “To The Sea” tour is partnering with charitable groups in areas affected by the Gulf oil disaster to encourage volunteerism and donations.
Additionally Johnson’s charity the Johnson Ohana Charitable Foundation, an endowment founded by Jack and Kim Johnson to support environmental, art, and music education, has pledged up to $70,000—$30,000 from direct donations and $40,000 in matching grants—to the All At Once non-profit partners working on Gulf relief efforts.
All At Once partners include Gulf Waterkeepers, Gulf Restoration Network, Louisiana Bucket Brigade, Ocean Conservancy, National Wildlife Federation, Surfrider Foundation, Galveston Bay Foundation, and Tampa Bay Watch. All donations to these groups, up to $2500 per, will be matched by the Johnson Ohana Charitable Foundation.
The “ToThe Sea” tour kicks off on August 13th in Salt Lake City, Utah. As with his 2008 tour, Jack Johnson has announced that he will again donate 100% of his 2010 tour profits to charity.
