Dispatch Concert

This weekend Dispatch is performing live in NYC at Madison Square Garden and I was able to attend the first show of the weekend! It was amazing... not only the concert itself but to see how Dispatch is helping out those who really need help. Proceeds from the ticket sales go towards fighting disease, famine and social injustice in the country of Zimbabwe. A contribution will also be made to local charities- meaning 100% of proceeds will be donated! Throughout the show facts about Zimbabwe appeared on big screen. I learned things I had no clue about... The country of Zimbabwe is about the size of Montana with a little more than 12 million people, with about 1 million orphans, 80% of the population live in poverty and 25% have HIV/AIDS. I was shocked and so glad to see that Dispatch has taken a stand and is doing their best to help all these people in need.
On Monday, July 16th Friday night's show will be available to download from their myspace page:
