Hope Through Healing Hands Announces The Water=Hope Campaign’s Continued Partnership with The Brad Paisley H2O II: Wetter & Wilder World Tour
Nashville, TN --Today on World Water Day, a day to draw attention to the one out of eight people around the world who lacks access to safe drinking water, Hope Through Healing Hands (HTHH) announces The Water=Hope Campaign's continued partnership with CMA Entertainer of the Year Brad Paisley and his H2O II: Wetter & Wilder World Tour presented by Chevy.
Hope Through Healing Hands (HTHH) is excited to partner again with the Brad Paisley's H2O Tour in 2011 with a campaign for clean, safe water. The Water=Hope Campaign will promote awareness and advocacy for safe water, adequate sanitation, and improved hygiene, especially in low-income countries. At each U.S. show, HTHH will have a booth to distribute literature and encourage people to learn more about how they can get involved. Prior to the show, fans will have the opportunity to text "H2O" to 25383 to donate $10 to support clean water initiatives around the globe.
Last year, HTHH built three wells in Liberia, Uganda, and Ethiopia and installed water purification systems in homes lacking access to water in Appalachia. This year, we hope to build more wells and service more homes for families to have clean, safe water at home and around the world.
H2O II: Wetter & Wilder World Tour will bring back the very popular and fan favorite "Water World Plaza," turning every city into a water festival. Focal point in the Plaza area will be the "Water World Plaza Stage" featuring emerging new stars Brent Anderson, Edens Edge and Sunny Sweeney. Special guests on the tour will be Blake Shelton and Jerrod Niemann. The tour extravaganza will open each day at 4:00pm with music starting at 5:00pm. In addition to the music stage there will be multiple water-themed activities – including a Chevy H2O FLW fishing simulator, dunking booth, slip n slide, The Water=Hope Campaign booth and more.
