With everything she accomplishes it simply proves she can do anything she sets her mind to. Country music superstar Miranda Lambert has proven that she can succeed at two amazing things on any given night – deliver a stellar performance to her music fans while making sure local, no-kill animal shelters receive much needed support at nearly every stop along the way of her 24-city 2018 Livin’ Like Hippies Tour. More than 20 Animal Shelters benefited from this project.
From Arkansas to Arizona, from LA to Little Rock, heeding the call-to-action, fans came bearing gifts of dog food, supplies, toys, treats and cash to be donated to a pre-selected shelter in their city. The donations were collected at the venue’s Fill the Little Red Wagon activation, presented by Live Nation & MuttNation Foundation, Miranda’s 501c3 nonprofit. A lucky fan who participated in the donation drive in each city was randomly chosen to join Miranda at a meet-and-greet that evening, and each of the participating shelters were gifted MuttNation Citizenship.
“My fans are passionate – they care about music and they care about animals. Without them, neither my music nor MuttNation could reach as many people or help as many dogs as we do. It’s incredibly heartwarming to see The Little Red Wagon overflowing at each show and it makes me crazy happy to combine two of my biggest loves, music and mutts, every night” said Miranda, the proud owner of 8 rescue dogs.
Also keeping things canine, through their Vodka for Dog People program, the animal lovers at Tito’s Handmade Vodka joined the tour making a generous donation to the MuttNation Foundation and provided the Tito’s VIP Lounge for Miranda and her special guests backstage.
Look for the The Little Red Wagon to roll back out this summer when it jumps on the Bandwagon Tour, featuring Miranda and Little Big Town. So, get ready to do your part as the summer tour takes its path to yet another successful ending for fans and pets alike.
