Country star Kristian Bush is encouraging people to #GiveItAway with a FREE meet and greet on Thursday, August, 27 from 12pm – 1pm at the Goodwill Southern California Los Feliz store (4575 Hollywood Blvd. L.A. 90027). Bush, also known as one-half of country music duo Sugarland, is currently serving as a celebrity ambassador for Goodwill Industries International, with his Top 20 hit “Trailer Hitch” featured as the centerpiece of their #GiveItAway campaign. The first 50 fans in line will receive a free autographed copy of his debut solo album Southern Gravity.
When people donate to Goodwill, they help individuals with disabilities and disadvantages in their communities secure sustainable employment through education, training, work experience and career placement services. Goodwill Southern California supports its mission of Transforming Lives Through The Power of Work with proceeds generated from the sale of donated goods at 80 retail stores.
“We are honored to meet and host Kristian Bush, whose song reminds us of the importance of giving to others and how good it makes us feel to do so,” said Craig Smith, President and CEO of Goodwill Southern California.
“I’m excited that I get to use my partnership with Goodwill to do something good for this community.” said Bush. “When I learned more about Goodwill and what they do with the proceeds from donations – how those donations help create jobs – I was really excited to join the effort. If you are interested in creating change in your community, donating to Goodwill is a great place to start.”
Following the meet and greet, Bush will perform a concert at The Troubadour (9081 Santa Monica Blvd) in West Hollywood, CA. Kicking off at 8p.m., Bush will be joined by special guest Rita Wilson. A portion of each ticket sold will be donated to the charitable arm of the Academy of Country Music and their mission to improve lives through the power of music.
