The annual Take Action! Tour- presented by Hot Topic is a multi-city, nationwide non-profit tour that brings the issue of suicide and depression to the front page. Every day in America thirteen people between the ages of 12 and 24 die from suicide. The Take Action! Tour encourages young people to get involved with charitable organizations and make a difference in their community.
Take Action aims to create a better world, one voice and one action at a time. It is Take Action’s mission to educate people about the positive difference that can be made by each of us in our community through activism and charitable work.
Hopeless/Sub City Records, the founder and organizer of the tour, are happy to once again donate 10% of all 2007 Take Action! Tour ticket sales and 5% of the retail price for each compilation CD sold to the Youth America Hotline! 1-877-YOUTHLINE (968-8454). This benefiting charity was founded by the Kristen Brooks Hope Center to help young people in crisis through peer-to-peer counseling and educating young people about mental health issues. Take Action raised over $100,000 last year for the Youth America Hotline!
Hot Topic, the music lifestyle mall retailer (hottopic.com), will once again be the title sponsor of the tour. Hot Topic is a natural fit, as they demonstrate a passion for music in everything they do. Since the inception of Take Action in 1999, Hot Topic has been an enthusiastic supporter of the Take Action cause, helping to save countless lives and educate millions of people to make a difference.
Additional information regarding the Take Action! Tour will soon be announced, including tour dates, tickets, and information regarding Volume 6 of the Take Action Compilation CD.
