Jason Mraz and REVERB Partner to Launch Fan Outreach Campaign
The Tree Is A Four Letter Word Campaign Launches as Part of the 2012 Jason Mraz North American Tour, Aims to Support Local Environmental Organizations and Engage and Inspire Fans to Take Action
PORTLAND, ME -- (Marketwire) -- 08/08/12 -- Environmental non-profit REVERB has announced a partnership with Jason Mraz on a new program titled Tree Is A Four Letter Word. The name is a play on Mraz's latest album title, Love Is A Four Letter Word.
For fans, each concert will include a REVERB Eco-Village to visit on the way into the show where attendees will be able to engage with their local tree-focused non-profit groups, donate for a souvenir sticker, and volunteer for tree projects in their community. Fans who participate onsite at the show will be able to win prizes including a two-week eco-adventure for one winner and a friend to India, an autographed Taylor guitar as well as reusable bottles and other prizes from the Brita FilterForGood Music Project. Additionally, in select markets Jason will be getting his hands dirty by participating in community tree projects with fans and local non-profits.
In an effort to also support global tree planting projects, fans throughout the venue and online will be encouraged to text "tree" to 85944 to make a $5 donation to re-green degraded land in impoverished communities in Burundi and Kenya via the Green World Campaign. An interactive "treemometer" will be shown on venue screens and online to show real-time progress of the "Mraz Fan Forest."
Mraz is an enthusiastic supporter of REVERB's mission and says, "I'm so excited to be working with REVERB to provide fans a platform to get involved, and support community-based organizations both locally and around the world."
