Rockstar Energy Drink UPROAR Festival artist Corey Taylor, vocalist of Stone Sour, has recorded a public service announcement for Child Find of America as part of the tour's awareness campaign for the national not-for-profit organization dedicated to the prevention and resolution of child abduction (1-800-I-AM-LOST). In the PSA, Taylor reveals that he was once a runaway and sometimes lived on the street between the ages of 17 and 19, which is a brave and bold thing to share. The PSA can be viewed here: http://www.RockstarUPROAR.com/uproartv.
UPROAR's Child Find of America awareness campaign also includes wrapping the tour's semi trucks with images of missing children, providing nationwide exposure on major highways throughout North America for over six weeks; a text-to-donate campaign (Text "FIND" to 50555 to donate $5); social media outreach to bring safety messages and images of missing children to rock music lovers worldwide; and an onsite presence at each festival date.

The first annual Rockstar Energy Drink UPROAR Festival launches Tuesday, August 17 in Minneapolis, MN and runs through Monday, October 4 in Madison, WI.
It's amazing when rock music unites for a cause, isn't it?
