Prior to the release of his sophomore album, Amos, on June 1, Michael Ray is surprising fans with the launch of his custom designed “Wrigley Cares Limited-Edition Puma Classic Suede” shoe. All of the proceeds from the sale of these shoes benefit Ray’s charitable initiative, Wrigley Cares: Helping Animals in Need.
 
“Zappos for Good has been such an incredible organization to work with on this project,” says Ray who launched Wrigley Cares in 2017. “Not only have they given us the opportunity and the platform to promote a cause I’m so passionate about, but to be able to design a custom sneaker to benefit Wrigley Cares was amazing. They really do look at giving from a unique standpoint that provides value to the fans and the causes they’re passionate about.”
 
Wrigley Cares was inspired by Ray’s rescue dog, Wrigley, whom he adopted at last summer’s Country Lake Shake Festival in Chicago. Ray experienced an outpouring of love from fans who began showing up to concerts with dog toys, food and treats for his new puppy.  This led to the idea of donating those toys to the local animal shelter in whatever city Ray’s Get To You Tour was stopping in. With the help of Zappos for Good, the charitable arm of Zappos, they were able to identify local shelters in need and setting up donation station at each tour stop.
 
“We love when our customers get to help us deliver WOW and this latest partnership between Michael Ray and Zappos For Good is going to do just that by caring for animals in need all over the country,” said Steven Bautista, Head of Charity at Zappos.com
 
The announcement of Ray’s shoes comes just in time for the release of his new album, Amos, named in honor of his grandfather. Ray credits Amos with helping to shape him into the man and musician he is today. The 11-track collection features Top 20 single “Get To You,” the emotional heartbreak ballad “Her World Or Mine” and the summer smash “One That Got Away.”
 
Fans will have the opportunity to continue donating to Wrigley Cares: Helping Animals in Need on select tour dates this fall. For more information, visit michaelraymusic.com.
 
Amos is available for pre-order now and available everywhere June 1.
