SEATTLE, WA...September 24, 2008...From the band that knows how to make teen girls swoon as well as impact the lives of the youth generation, Hawk Nelson is on target to make a difference with the "One Little Miracle" campaign in multiple facets. The band is partnering with various organizations to urge others to reach outside and be that "one little miracle" that can change someone's life. The moniker for the newly launched program is based of the band's newest single "One Little Miracle," which is currently charting at No. 6 on CHR formats. As the song states:
Not just focusing on one area of need, Hawk Nelson has chosen three avenues to be the "one little miracle" across the nation; however, the band needs the help of their truly devoted fans and following to make an impact. Each outreach will enforce the band's ongoing involvement with the Hands & Feet Orphanage in Haiti, which the band visited last summer and recently purchased a van from proceeds raised during the spring tour (pictured below). The orphanage was directly hit in the recent Gustav hurricane, and the band is striving to help provide aid as many others.
Hawk Nelson & TOMS Shoes
Hawk Nelson loves TOMS shoes and the cause they support: providing shoes for children in poverty stricken countries. For every pair of shoes purchased, TOMS donates a pair to someone in need. Their motto: One for One. Hawk Nelson is joining TOMS outreach. For every pair of shoes sold through this relationship (by clicking on the TOMS logo on the Hawk site or by clicking here), TOMS will give $8 back to the Hands & Feet Orphanage in Haiti. Coming soon will be an exclusive Hawk Nelson designed shoe (see sketch).
TOMS Shoes was founded in 2006 and in their debut year gave more than 70,000 shoes to children in need from Argentina and South Africa. In 2008, TOMS plans to distribute more than 200,000 pairs of shoes across the world. For more information on Hawk Nelson & TOMS SHOES visit Hawk's site.
Hawk Nelson & Ronald McDonald Visits:
As the REVOLVE 2008 tour gets underway, Hawk Nelson is planning on visiting select Ronald McDonald homes in the tour cities (below). The guys will visit the homes on Friday afternoons before the REVOLVE events take place and take goodie bags with CDs and t-shirts. They hope to encourage teen girls and families at these homes to attend the event, which REVOLVE will provide transportation and passes.
For nearly 35 years, Ronald McDonald House Charities® (RMHC) has been creating, finding and supporting programs that directly improve the health and well being of children worldwide. RMHC is making a global impact on the most pressing problems facing families today. As a trusted non-profit for 35 years, RMHC has three core programs that help families in need: Ronald McDonald House®, Ronald McDonald Family Room® and Ronald McDonald Care Mobile®.
Hawk Nelson & Air1:
To help support the REVOLVE tour and the Hawk Nelson "One Little Miracle" campaign, Air1 Radio is partnering with the band to giveaway 75 signed records along with REVOLVE tickets. The grand prize will be a fly away package to Orlando (Feb. 6-7,2009) for the REVOLVE event. The winner will go with Hawk Nelson to the Ronald McDonald house as well as the event. In addition, Hawk Nelson and Air1's Scott Smith will do weekly vodcasts as well as live broadcast with Hawk every Friday night on air from the REVOLVE dates.
For more information on all of these initiatives and Hawk Nelson's involvement, please visit www.hawknelson.com . In addition the "One Little Miracle" EP, featuring Amy Grant special recording at Creation Northeast, will be available on October 14th at iTunes.
