Not only will your inner musician be brought to life, but your inner humanitarian can be recognized as well.
The Vans Warped Tour has partnered with a dozen non-profit organizations that travel with them across the country. This summer, one non-profit organization that will embark on the journey across the nation is To Write Love On Her Arms (TWLOHA).
TWLOHA has been growing since it started in 2006 and spreading its mission to promote hope for those that are fighting addiction and depression. To help spread awareness the non-profit organization has teamed up with bands and artists, who most often wear t-shirts displaying the TWLOHA logo.
Boys Like Girls is one of the many bands that have helped promote the non-profit by wearing their t-shirts during their performances. Don’t be surprised if you see your favorite artists rocking out on stage with a TWLOHA t-shirt. To read more about the non-profit organization, check out their website: twloha.com. A TWLOHA booth will be set-up during the music festival that will be there to answer any questions and selling their merchandise that helps raise funds.
From music to fighting for a cause, The Vans Warped Tour will be able to cater to every one of your needs. So, mark your calendars San Diego for one of the hottest music festivals to hit our beautiful city.
