Over the past year, on the Love Unleashed Tour, Martina McBride donated a portion of proceeds from tickets sold to our Music Is Love Fund (administered by The Community Foundation of Middle Tennessee). Back at that time we could not have known all of the disasters that would strike our country and just how much these funds would be needed.
Thanks also to generous donations made by fans to the Music Is Love Fund this year, and Team Music Is Love t-shirts sold, we’ve been able to give $25,000 in disaster relief grants to organizations helping Texas, Florida, and Puerto Rico.
On Oct 19, 2017, Martina presented a check for 125,000 meals to Jim and Donna Evans of One Gen Away, a hunger relief organization based in Franklin, TN. This donation will send mobile food pantry trucks to Texas and Florida and to towns still recovering from two recent hurricanes that hit the U.S.
Martina will also perform on Nov 12 at the all-star Country Rising concert happening at Bridgestone Arena in Nashville to benefit disaster relief in TX, FL, Puerto Rico and shooting victims of the Las Vegas Rt 91 tragedy.
