Back in June the Rockstar Uproar tour announced that they would be partnering up with the non-profit organization Child Find of America that is dedicated to the prevention and resolution of child abduction. If you’ve purchased tickets to the Rockstar Uproar tour you’ve already helped out since portions of the proceeds from ticket sales have been donated to the organization.
In addition to wrapping the tours semi-trucks with images of missing children (a photo can be found below!) Child Find of America, which celebrates its 30th anniversary this year, also has an on-site presence at each festival date so please make sure to stop the booth and check it out!
“I have three daughters and they are the most important thing in my life,” says John Reese, Producer of UPROAR. “After the Chelsea King tragedy we made a conscious decision that we were going to make strong efforts to help ensure that something like that doesn’t happen again. Working with and supporting Child Find of America is something that is very near and dear to our hearts.”
Donna Linder, Executive Director of Child Find of America, explains: “We’re very excited by this great opportunity to increase awareness and knowledge about the issue of missing children to the general public, as well as opening an avenue to offer prevention and safety tips to a difficult-to-reach age demographic. The passion and energy the UPROAR team has expressed has been incredible and their generosity is deeply appreciated.”
