AMAZING JOHNATHAN JOINS HARD ROCK INTERNATIONAL TO SUPPORT IMAGINE THERE’S NO HUNGER CHARITY CAMPAIGN
Hard Rock Cafes in Las Vegas, NV are teaming up with Vegas entertainers to kick off the official season of giving. Las Vegas entertainers are participating by wearing a charity bracelet for one night in November, in support of the Hard Rock International’s 2012 global IMAGINE THERE’S NO HUNGER campaign to combat childhood hunger and poverty around the world.
To help bring awareness to the campaign, Comic Magician, Amazing Johnathan, joined in by wearing the signature limited-edition bracelet which features the powerful message “IMAGINE THERE’S NO HUNGER”. Donate at your local cafe or online and receive the Imagine Bracelet. Fans are also encouraged to join in the celebrations around the globe by tweeting, posting or even texting the word IMAGINE to 50555 to donate directly to WhyHunger.org and help feed a hungry child. A portion of the monies raised will be donated to communities on the East Coast affected by Hurricane Sandy.
This initiative is part of Hard Rock International’s 2012 global IMAGINE THERE’S NO HUNGER campaign, which is supported by John Lennon’s wife, artist and musician Yoko Ono Lennon, to combat childhood hunger and poverty around the world. Dedicated to the brand’s “All is One” core value, proceeds from Hard Rock’s campaign will directly benefit WhyHunger, a leader in building the global movement to end hunger and poverty, and its grassroots partners around the globe in hopes of finding long-term solutions through sustainable agriculture.
