Water.org, a non-profit organization co-founded by Oscar winning actor Matt Damon and executive director Gary White, has teamed up alongside music legend Rita Marley to support the new pop/rock/soul artist KAMEKO and his "Tired of Being Broke" Musical Stimulus Gift Package Tour, which will kick off at Liberia's ATS stadium on March 19, 2011.
"Water.org is excited to be KAMEKO's charity partner as part of the 'Tired of Being Broke' tour," said Gary White, "the tour is a wonderful opportunity to help raise people's spirits through the power of music and at the same time, to raise funds needed to help bring clean water to those in need around the world." The tour will be sponsored by Carver Federal Savings Bank, with Rolling Out Magazine as the tour's U.S. media sponsor.
During this tour, KAMEKO will offer financial assistance to various charities such as The Mali Health Project and Habitat for Humanity through a portion of tour proceeds, product giveaways and coupons from sponsors for discounts on food, clothing and various necessities.
"Music is a medium of teaching and learning," says Rita Marley, widow of Bob Marley, "...that's why I chose to endorse KAMEKO's effort and want to be part of it."
Rita Marley and KAMEKO were recently featured in Rolling Out and Sister 2 Sister Magazine. They will be featured in an upcoming issue of Essence Magazine.
