Celebrities making a difference

My husband and I went to a concert last night, which I've mentioned in other discussions. We left before it had completely ended, but as we were leaving, Adam Duritz, the lead singer for Counting Crows was telling the audience about all the things they were doing on this tour. First of all it's a "Green Tour". They're neutrilizing the carbon emissions to make their entire tour more energy efficient.. as well as some other things which you can read about on the website here.. http://www.reverbrock.org/M5CC/greening.htm But what really got me is how these bands are promoting LOCAL non-profit charities in each of the cities they visit. They chose a couple of organizations in our local community to promote at the concert, and mentioned each one. They also had booths for these charities at the concert. I just think that is so awesome that not only are they helping a charity, they are helping charities in our communities, not just theirs. That's really going to make a difference for our neighbors! I just love it when celebrities use their fame and celebrity power to bring awareness to things like this... don't you?
