Grammy nominee Thompson Square and ChildFund International are pleased to announce a promotional and awareness partnership to extend throughout the chart-topping duo’s 2012 concert season. The dates will include both Thompson Square’s headlining performances as well as the duo’s supporting dates on Lady Antebellum’s 2012 Own the Night World Tour.
Beginning this weekend, audiences will be treated to a video of Thompson Square discussing the duo’s ChildFund International partnership, describing the difference each fan can make in a child’s life through the organization. The video will be set to the music of Thompson Square’s latest hit single, “Glass,” which The Washington Post recently hailed as a “poignant meditation on human vulnerability.”
ChildFund International will be on site at each concert in a booth run by volunteers who each personally sponsor a child through the organization. Fans who visit the ChildFund International booth and sign up to sponsor a child that evening will receive an autographed copy of Thompson Square’s self-titled debut album.
Husband/ wife duo Keifer and Shawna Thompson, themselves, have sponsored a young girl from Indonesia through ChildFund International.
“The concert venues present another great opportunity to share the message and experience of sponsoring a child,” says Matt Panos, vice president of Global Fundraising and Communications for ChildFund.
“When we learned about the amazing work ChildFund International does to help children on a global scale, we knew immediately that we wanted to be involved and figure out a way that we could contribute,” says Keifer Thompson.
“We’ve personally sponsored an adorable little girl named Lady from Indonesia and hope to make a difference in her life,” adds Shawna Thompson. “Also giving away one of our signed albums to fans who want to join us and give back to a child in need is the very least we can do to help.”
