A rescue pooch named Wrigley, country singer Michael Ray, and passionate fans around the country have come together to do some good for a whole lot of animals in need.
There’s nothing I like more than seeing country singers using their powers for good. Whether it’s Jason Aldean raising money for cancer research or Miranda Lambert using her spare time to find homes for homeless pets, country artists helping others always warms my heart. And now Michael Ray has added his name to the ever-growing list of country do-gooders.
A life-long animal supporter, Michael Ray recently launched Wrigley Cares: Helping Animals In Need as a philanthropic component to his 15-city “Get To You” Tour. Named after his rescue dog, Wrigley, the singer teamed up with Zappos For Good and local animal shelters to set up donation stations at each of his “Get To You” Tour stops.
In just four weeks on the road, Ray and his fans have collected an amazing 100,320 meals to donate to animals in need, based on one cup of food as an average per food meal size.
“We set out to see how we can help animals in need and we are blown away by the huge response,” Michael Ray said via a press release. “When we’re on the road, we stop in each town and become a part of the community for a night while on stage. It’s inspiring to see the ‘Get To You’ Tour can leave a lasting impression and feed so many shelter animals. Wrigley’s stoked too.”
