Faith Hill to Commemorate Katrina Five Years LaterAug 6, 2010 @ 1:01 pm
On August 29th, 2005, Hurricane Katrina devastated the city of New Orleans and its residents. Five years later, Tide Loads of Hope, a charity that provides relief for disaster victims by means of a mobile laundromat, will honor their resiliency and spirit with a free concert by their newest ambassador, Faith Hill, a Gulf Coast-area native. “”As a Mississippi native, I have witnessed the damage, both physical and emotional, that Hurricane Katrina inflicted on the Gulf Coast,” the country star said in statement. “I have been a champion of the work Tide does to restore a sense of hope and normalcy to those affected by disaster through providing a basic necessity—clean clothing.” The concert, being held August 24th in New Orleans, will only offer tickets via local radio contests, but you can pitch in right now by buying this vintage Tide T-shirt—all proceeds going towards the cause.
