“Music can play an important role for those who are hurting emotionally – it can soothe, heal, and inspire hope. Give an Hour, through our public health initiative, the Campaign to Change Direction, is excited – and grateful – to partner once again with Charity Bomb for Strange 80s – a wildly fun concert that will definitely be good for everyone’s emotional well-being!” explains Dr. Barbara Van Dahlen, Founder and President of Give an Hour. “Through 320 Changes Direction, our special partnership with Talinda Bennington, we are working to reach those who are struggling – so that they know they aren’t alone. We want everyone to come out on June 1st, 2019 for the concert – to raise awareness and funds for the work we are doing to change the culture of mental health. With Charity Bomb running the show, we know it will be great fun and a huge success!”
