After the shooting in Thousands Oaks, Blake Mycoskie and our friends at Tom’s shoes dedicated 5M to end gun violence on Jimmy Fallon. Blake boldly declares gun violence as one of “the most important causes, and issues of our time,” after telling an emotional story of his wife being too scared to leave their home with their son. Blake goes on to announce an app they created in 4 days from their website that allows the user to send a post card to their representative. This postcard urges your representative to do one thing “passing universal background checks.” This is the single largest corporate gift to end gun violence in the history of the United States. NOW GO SEND A POSTCARD!
Bonnaroo is around the corner and we're setting the stage (badum-ching*) for an epic weekend. We've teamed up with the crew at Fort Houston as they take over Plaza 7 The Ville (formerly "The Grind") and feature Nashville's most creative, most entertaining, and most delicious food partners in conjunction with Nashville Convention & Visitors Corp. The Ville will highlight Nashville hot chicken, burgers, art, and live local music including artists Earthbound Sound, Luthi, Katie Schecter, Astrobrooke, Profesoras and many more.
Dive into this playlist to get you through what's left of the work week or press play as you make your way to Manchester. Happy Roo!
