    We love bands with a heart and a cause, and a sense of philanthropy! Having just begun their 2012 US tour last week, Grand Rapids band La Dispute are pleased to announce they have partnered with 826michigan, a non-profit organization dedicated to helping kids with writing and self-expression. What an amazing and noble cause to link up with. Nice work, La Dispute.

    To support this partnership, the band will be selling 150 limited edition packets at their shows, including "Conversations," rare photos, a poster, postcards, and other great things. "Conversations" is a lengthy interview with La Dispute's lead-singer Jordan Dreyer, analyzing and elaborating upon the stories and themes present in the band's 2011 album Wildlife. For more information, please go here.

    826michigan is a volunteer-driven non-profit writing and tutoring center that offers after-school tutoring, creative writing workshops, publishing opportunities, field trips, and in-class support to local schools, all free of charge. It is part of the 826 National network founded by writer Dave Eggers, with locations in Ann Arbor, Boston, Chicago, Los Angeles, New York, San Francisco, Seattle and Washington, D.C.

    What can you do to support an org like 826?

    —Amy Sciarretto
