The African Well Fund is thrilled to announce that Pittsburgh punk band Anti-Flag is donating a portion of presale ticket sales from their upcoming U.S. tour to support our clean water projects. The tour begins March 8th in NYC and wraps up on April 22nd in the band’s hometown of Pittsburgh, PA. Presale tickets are still available and can be purchased here
Anti-Flag was formed in Pittsburgh in the mid 90s by long-time friends Justin Sane and Pat Thetic. Inspired by groups and activists such as The Clash and Woody Guthrie, they managed to make music “as desperate and gritty as their hometown.”
Anti-Flag’s political activism has led them to past partnerships with Congressman Jim McDermott, Amnesty International, Student Peace Action and many other people and organizations who are striving for positive change.
Band member Chris #2 had this to say about Anti-Flag’s partnership with AWF:
“The African Well Fund was the first choice when it came to Anti-Flag deciding who to donate money to. The reason is simple, you know the money you donate is actually reaching someone and making an impact. Their results are proven.
The members of the community that surround our band’s messages and music are always looking for victories to carry our optimism and hope for the future. Anti-Flag and the African Well Fund working together are providing that for everyone who wants more from their art than just concerts. All of us together are providing positive change in this world.”
AWF volunteers will be hosting informational tables at some of the shows. Check back here for more details as the tour progresses.
