Sheryl Crow is the ambassador for Music Gives to St. Jude Kids! Music Gives mobilizes the music industry – artists, fans, record companies and sponsors - to raise funds to support the lifesaving work of St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital®, one of the world's premier centers for the research and treatment of pediatric cancer and other catastrophic childhood diseases. If you watched this season of Celebrity Apprentice, you're aware of the great things that St. Jude's does; Rich's charity of choice was St. Jude's for their work with kids.
The program unites artists and their fans to get involved and support St. Jude's efforts through a variety of opportunities including concert promotions, text to donate messages, social media and a range of other fundraising opportunities. To help launch the program, Ticketmaster and Live Nation are showcasing it by running a summer promotion that enables consumers to add-on a donation to St. Jude with every ticket purchased now through August 22nd. In addition to Crow, musical groups Kings of Leon and Stone Temple Pilots have joined Music Gives, with more artists to be announced in the near future.
