In an official announcement, Johnson said he will team with the All at Once campaign to encourage volunteerism and donations from fans. Information on how fans can get involved will be made available in the Village Green at concerts in the regions affected by the oil spill.
Johnson also revealed that his latest charity, the Johnson Ohana Charitable Foundation, has committed to donate up to $70,000 to the All at Once non-profit partners working on Gulf Oil Spill relief efforts. Johnson's charity will offer $30,000 in direct donations and up to $40,000 in matching grants.
The Hawaii-based singer matched donations of up to $2,500 to non-profit partners in the region like Gulf Waterkeepers, the Gulf Restoration Network, Louisiana Bucket Brigade, Ocean Conservancy, National Wildlife Federation, Surfrider Foundation, Galveston Bay Foundation and Tampa Bay Watch. Johnson also held a ticket auction in which he donated prime seats to his August gigs, with proceeds going directly to the All at Once non-profit partners.
