Calling All Volunteers, new dates announced!

Calling All Volunteers for Brandi's upcoming Tour Dates!... We are over halfway toward our fundraising goal for The Story Campaign and we are more committed to this cause than ever. To commemorate the 10 year anniversary of Brandi Carlile's "The Story,” The Looking Out Foundation has partnered with @warchilduk and @childreninconflict 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.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 four 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 2019. 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: 4/12, The Bomb Factory, Dallas, TX5/24-5/25, Ben&Jerry's Concerts on the Green, Shelburne, VT6/1, The Gorge, Quincy, WA 6/14, Merriweather Post Pavilion, Columbia, MD6/29, Huntington Bank Pavilion, Chicago, IL8/2, Providence Medical Center Amphitheater, Bonner Springs, KS8/23-8/24, Edgefield Amphitheater, Troutdale, OR9/6, The Mann, Philadelphia, PA9/14, Madisen Square Garden, NYC9/21, The Greek at UC Berkeley, Berkley, CA To apply to be a Looking Out Street Teamer, please contact volunteer@lookingoutfoundation.org

End Of Year Message from Catherine & Brandi

Hello, LOF friends & supporters! As 2018 comes to a close, we’re reflecting on how all of us, together, made music mean more. From raising almost $700,000 for The Story Campaign, to releasing “Party of One” with Sam Smith for Children in Conflict, to furthering the discussion about women in prison through The IF Project documentary, to doing our part in supporting young activists with the “Hold Out Your Hand” video, we’re ready to take 2019 by storm to do even more good!   But we can’t do this work without your help. If you’re making an end-of-year donation, we’re hoping the Looking Out Foundation is at the top of your list. Besides the large initiatives mentioned above, we also issue grants throughout the year to smaller, lesser-known organizations that do so much in our local community and beyond. We’re also determined to hit that $1 million goal for The Story Campaign - who’s in?...Thank you from the bottom of our hearts for your dedication and support. Wishing you all a Happy New Year! Catherine & Brandi
