On Monday, it was revealed that Scotty McCreery had joined the 12.14 Foundation as their Goodwill Ambassador. 

The 12.14 Foundation uses arts as a healing mechanism in the wake of the horrific shooting tragedy which occurred in Newtown, CT on December 14, 2012.

 

As the foundation's first "National Goodwill Ambassador.” McCreery will play an active role in promoting the foundation’s arts programming, supporting its fundraising efforts, and building awareness for the organization’s plans to build a world-class performing arts and education center in Newtown. McCreery, who visited with families and school children in Newtown on December 12, 2013, just two days before the first anniversary of the tragedy, is internationally recognized as the winner of Season 10 of American Idol and who has since become one of the top new artists on the country music landscape. 

"I'm honored to support the 12.14 Foundation, and greatly admire both the mission and work of this remarkable organization,” said McCreery in a release. “As a songwriter and performer, I know that music can bring hope and inspiration to those struggling to overcome great adversity. The foundation’s vision of helping children and others heal through the performing arts really hits home for me as an entertainer. I will do everything I can to help communities affected by tragedy to heal and gain strength through the work of the 12.14 Foundation.” 

“Scotty is a terrific young man, and his support of the foundation’s work will be pivotal in raising national awareness for our arts programming and, ultimately, construction of a state-of-the-art performing arts center in Newtown,” said Dr. Michael Baroody, a Newtown resident who founded the organization shortly after the tragedy at Sandy Hook Elementary School which took the lives of 26 victims. “Our mission is to provide healing through the arts as a way forward — not just for those affected in Newtown but for people everywhere who have endured tragedy and trauma. Scotty provides joy, hope and inspiration through music, has a genuine compassion for others, and is an excellent role-model for perseverance and achievement at a young age.”
