Hanson Walk to Spread Awareness

posted by High Voltage Staff | Thursday, October 25, 2007 | 1:29 PM

WEST HOLLYWOOD — The City of West Hollywood, recording artists Hanson and TOMS Shoes will join together to help fight poverty and HIV/AIDS in Africa. The partnership is a component of the City’s “Global AIDS Initiative” which was created with the goal of advocating for and supporting education, outreach and funding efforts to combat the AIDS pandemic in Africa.  The goal is to raise awareness about the correlation between poverty and HIV/AIDS in Africa and to inspire people to look for simple ways to make a difference in their community and the world.

On Tuesday, October 30, 2007, joined by West Hollywood City Officials, a special one mile walk will be staged through the streets of Los Angeles culminating with a performance by Hanson in the old Tower Records parking lot on the famed Sunset Strip. All fans in the area are encouraged to join the walk.

As part of the Walk tour, a one mile walk is staged in each tour market inviting the fans and local artists to join the band  and walk barefoot, encouraging those participating to take action by purchasing a pair of TOMS Shoes as part of these one mile Walks. For every pair of TOMS Shoes purchased, a second pair of shoes is donated to a child in poverty.
