Dispatch has always been a band that has stood up and rallied its fans behind causes that challenge the status quo. This time out the band will donate $1 from every concert ticket sold on the Circles Around The Sun Tour to its Amplifying Education initiative. Over the last year, Dispatch’s Amplifying Education campaign has engaged over 700 fan volunteers in nearly 4,000 hours of service to improve schools across North American and Europe; collected over 10,000 book donations to support local literacy programs through Better World Books; and raised over $250,000 through a portion of ticket sales, benefit shows, and fan-to-fan outreach at shows to support local education programs like City Year and Teach for America. Dispatch fans are also encouraged to continue bringing book donations to shows this fall to support local literacy programs. For more information please visit www.dispatchmusic.com/giving_back.
