Jack Johnson Announces Donation up to $70,000 for Gulf Oil Spill Relief


HONOLULU, HI, Aug 06, 2010 (MARKETWIRE via COMTEX) -- In the wake of the recent Gulf of Mexico oil spill, Jack Johnson announces his support of Gulf Oil Spill recovery efforts. Johnson is due to embark on the second leg of his "To The Sea" tour, which begins on August 13th in Salt Lake City, Utah, and continues on to Texas and through the south to Florida. Many stops on the tour will be in areas directly affected by the Gulf Oil Spill.



As part of the All At Once campaign, Johnson's "To The Sea" tour is partnering with local and national non-profits in areas affected by the Gulf Oil Spill to encourage volunteerism and direct donations.

These groups will be featured at www.AllAtOnce.org. Fans can learn more first-hand in the Village Green at Jack Johnson concerts taking place in areas affected by the Gulf Oil Spill.


In addition, Johnson's newest charity, the Johnson Ohana Charitable Foundation, is committing up to $70,000 to the All At Once non-profit partners working on Gulf Oil Spill relief efforts, with $30,000 in direct donations and up to $40,000 in matching grants.

Key All At Once non-profit partners working in the region include Gulf Waterkeepers, Gulf Restoration Network, Louisiana Bucket Brigade, Ocean Conservancy, National Wildlife Federation, Surfrider Foundation, Galveston Bay Foundation, and Tampa Bay Watch. Donations to these groups will be matched by the Johnson Ohana Charitable Foundation (up to $2500 per group).

Now through August 9th, Jack Johnson will be auctioning off prime seats to his August shows via TicketMaster with all auction proceeds going directly to the All At Once non-profit partners working on relief efforts in the Gulf.

Johnson is also encouraging his Gulf Coast fans to report the oil spill impacts that they witness first hand. All At Once non-profit partners Ocean Conservancy and Surfrider Foundation have collaborated with CitySourced to develop the SkyTruth Oil Spill Reporter -- a free smart phone application that empowers Gulf Coast residents to snap and tag photos of oil on the land, in the water, and affected wildlife. These citizen reports help prioritize clean-up efforts and document the extent of the spill for policy makers and the public.

www.skytruth.com In addition to the non-profit partners working on Gulf Oil Spill relief projects, Johnson's 2010 To The Sea World Tour is collaborating with over 150 hand-chosen community groups around the globe as part of Johnson's All At Once Community. This year's All At Once campaign is focusing on supporting non-profit groups and engaging fans in plastic free initiatives and sustainable local food systems. As in 2008, Jack Johnson will donate 100% of his 2010 tour proceeds to charity.
