Looking Out amplifies the impact of music by empowering those without a voice. From neighborhood to nation, we help fund causes and organizations that often go unnoticed. Founded in 2008 by Grammy-nominated artists Brandi Carlile, Tim and Phil Hanseroth, we band together with fans, nonprofits, and corporations to translate voices of song to voices of action. Find out more.

    Calling All Volunteers for Brandi's March tour dates!...

    It's 2018, we are over halfway toward our fundraising goal for The Story Campaign and we are more committed to this cause than ever. Please lend us your support as we enter into the next phase of our campaign to help children whose lives have been torn apart by war. The Story Campaign is hitting the road with Brandi Carlile this spring and we need volunteers! “All of these lines across my face tell you the story of who I am.” To commemorate the 10 year anniversary of Brandi Carlile’s “The Story,” The Looking Out Foundation has partnered with War Child UK and Children In Conflict to launch The Story Campaign – a sharing of stories from children whose families, communities, and schools have been torn apart by war. Every month, we will be posting new stories from these resilient children and young adults so that their voices can be heard and so that we can raise funds to help them and the thousands of other people who are unfairly impacted by war. All proceeds from The Story Campaign will benefit War Child UK & Children In Conflict. “But these stories don’t mean anything when you’ve got no one to tell them to” We’re relying on our Looking Out community to share these stories and help us reach our $1 million fundraising goal for these extraordinary people. We are recruiting two volunteers per show to join our Looking Out Street Team. You will be armed with iPads to sign people up and collection buckets to raise funds and awareness for The Story Campaign. Selected Street Teamers will be provided with a ticket to Brandi’s show, a limited edition Street Teamer T-shirt and an amazing opportunity to help children in dire need across the globe. In addition, the Street Teamer who signs up the most people will win a VIP concert ticket package for any Brandi Carlile show in 2018. All we ask is that you are knowledgeable, enthusiastic and inspired by The Story Campaign. We are currently recruiting Looking Out Street Teamers for the following concerts: March 3Commodore BallroomVancouver, Canada March 4Mount Baker TheatreBellingham, WA March 30The Moore TheatreSeattle, WA March 31The Moore TheatreSeattle, WA To apply to be a Looking Out Street Teamer, please contact volunteer@lookingoutfoundation.org with the following information: Name: Age: Show interested in attending (city, ST): Contact phone #: Contact email #: Q: Why are you interested in helping the Looking Out Foundation and The Story Campaign?
