(CelebrityAccess MediaWire) —
On September 20th, the Vans Warped Tour donated $300,000 to Habitat For Humanity. The donation will help build five new houses for Hurricane Katrina victims.
Vans Warped Tour skaters and artists, as well as members of the Vans and Warped Tour organization, gathered together to help build a prefabricated home, load it onto a truck and ship it off to Louisiana where it will be given to a family in need. In addition, for the summer 2006 Vans warped Tour trek, the tour will stop into areas affected by the hurricanes to assist communities with rebuilding homes.
Due to the success of the tour this summer–over 680,000 tickets were sold–the tour was able to team up with Habitat for Humanity to make a difference. In the tour’s traditional grassroots fashion, the tour has continued not only to be successful, but to give back to the community by donating to charities worldwide.
The Vans Warped Tour is made possible through the support of Vans, title sponsors Samsung Telecommunications America and Cingular Wireless, Fuse, PlayStation®, Wrigley’s Winterfresh, AOL, Hot Topic, truth, Monster Energy and Hansen’s Sodas, Lost Beverage, Dodge, MySpace.com, Hurley, ELLEgirl, Circuit City, Energizer® e2™ Titanium, MasterCard, The Army, Alternative Press and SPIN magazine. –Bob Grossweiner and Jane Cohen
